Organizing an artist is not always easy. I KNOW, I AM ONE! HA!
A few weeks ago I was challenged to look at all my characters and take inventory. It was the best thing I have done in a long time. I think I came up with about 19 different cartoon character lines. I am not kidding when I say my studio is full of life and noise!
This is my attempt at organizing. I am better to keep it all in front of me. Putting art in file folders and then in a filing cabinet assures me that my ideas will fade away. Instead I gathered all the ideas for each line and clipped them together. You can see in the picture above.
Now I can work on one line at a time. I can also look and see what needs to be done to make each line complete.
Each day is a work in progress, but at least I can see what the next step is without looking in a folder in my computer.
Here is a funny quote I found.
- “Organized people are just too lazy to look for things.”
