I'm taking the Creative Thursday e-course on creativity and making things and I love it. This is what I made in our first week. I've never done this before and made a lot of mistakes before it finally worked out.
We were talking about deadlines in our class. How a deadline motivates and puts pressure, even a certain amount of stress on you to achieve. My brother once told me that we need pressure or we would not get anything done. I am from the publishing industry and meeting a deadline is a must. So a deadline definitely motivates me, but I hate to think that I need a deadline to get something done. I think that a deadline makes me prioritize my project, and in this case, artwork and make it a priority in my day simply because it's due. But what I really need to learn is how to make artwork a priority in my daily life so that I consistently create. I think the deadlines of this e-course are training me to make art a priority in my life.
