New Year's Resolutions 2011 Pt. 2

So in the previous post I talked about my non-art New Year's resolutions. Now it's time to go to the land of esoterica and wizardsmy art!

Digital Darkroom Blog

I've been writing this as I learn about digital darkroom concerns and I think I finally have it dialed in to the point where I need to finish the drafts I have and publish it to share the knowledge.

Get Poetry Published

I've been compiling a list of places to submit to. I just need to finish copy-editing the ones that are finished and start mailing!

Continue Work on Poetry Book

Two project started to blend together (always a good thing in my mind!) and now I need to finish up the second section. It's interesting that I often go through massive 3-4 year visual work binges which end up being punctuated by about a year of hard work on writing projects...

Look For Gallery

Let's get those portfolios working for me!

Write a Bit of Narrative Work

I've had this unpredictable urge to start writing another novel… Time to start warming up.

Video System For Work

We need to step in to the new reality of digital video at work, so I need to start testing a workflow.

Expand Cocktail Repertoire

Somehow I forgot this in the previous post, but why not post it up anyway, since it is a form of art, or at least that's what the ponderous folks in vests who's hands no longer feel frost say, right?

New Monitor and Calibration System

I was unhappy with my previous calibration system, so I wanted to start exploring replacing it. Another good blog topic? You bet!

Get Selling Art Work Online

Even if this only means setting up a small Etsy shop and posting a few art auctions on eBay for my Santa Monica Blues projects, I would like to begin putting smaller, cheaper 11" x 14" prints online for folks to buy.

Write Reviews of the Shows I See

When I go to a museum or gallery to see a show, I vow to come back and write at least a one paragraph review, if just so I could ruminate on the show further!

Finish AHFB #3 (& #4?)

Keep plugging away on my xerox books! Who knows what will come from this project!

Finish Arcana Portfolio

Finish Anime Convention Documentary Portfolio 

Finish SM Blues Portfolio

Get Japonisme Under Way

Got some great ideas and some good solid work done. Now I just need to order some hentai doujin and make it happen! Also included is to make more and more Little Tokyo photos.

Work on Renn Faires Project

No idea where this project is headed, but I need to start shooting just for my own creativity!

Save Money to Upgrade to Full Frame Camera

Perhaps a multi-year goal, but stepping my up my gear is key (also buying a new prime 24mm and  F4L 24-105). 

Plan my "Hobbits, Heracles and Love" project.

I want to write up a proposal for this future, large, project a well as a budget. 

Blog About Influential Artists

I would like to write a series of articles about artists/projects that have been influential on my work and my thinking!

  1. Well, I think I will join you in the resolution to comment on other blogs you read, and start right here, now. I read a lot of them, and rarely comment. I also hope to blog about some influences. In fact, I'm just going to blog more in general for 2011; hope you will too.
