It feels good to have some solid directions to move again. It isn’t that I haven’t been busy, but being able to focus on pushing forward a new design is probably my favorite part of the whole process. There is something about taking a vision that you have in your mind and slowly seeing it come to life. I know you all understand that because I have seen the same thing happen to many of you. There is something exciting when we transpose an idea to an actual tactical piece that we can see and touch and admire. It makes us push hard to see things come to life.
I am working on a couple of things like that now. One thing in particular is going to be quite fun to cut. It is still in the early stages of drawing, but already it looks decent and I can picture the final pieces and I think they will be something that others will like too. I find myself thinking about it while lying in bed and I can’t wait until morning when I can get back and work on it. Those projects are the best, as they are driven by nothing more than the desire to be creative.
I can give you a little hint of what I have so far as a teaser:
It may not look like much now, but when it is finished, it will be something cool, I think.
I still could go a couple of ways with the design too. I haven’t quite decided on the final way I want to do things. That will come eventually though, and I am not worried that when the time comes to choose, I will know what I want to do.
I am keeping this short today, because I have a lot of drawing ahead of me. In the next few days I will have some additional pictures as things unfold. I want to get an early start and accomplish a lot on it today.
I can’t believe it is Friday already. My this week passed quickly! In the US everyone is preparing for a long weekend that officially kicks off the summer. Here in Nova Scotia I believe summer has already arrived. The days have been warm and sunny and the nights have been cool. Just how I like it.
Have a great day today! Enjoy what each day brings you and try to do something wonderfully creative!
