Year of Creative Habits 2017 – 1/365

YOCH Day 1

Welcome to my Year of Creative Habits for 2017! This is the first day of 365 in a row, where I’ll be posting yet another image (and writing about it!) every single day throughout 2017. Last time was all about my artwork and getting a running start as I decided to become a full-time artist, this time it’s focused on photography. As you can see though, I’m still going to include a little bit of artwork into each photograph. On every image this year I’m going to draw a little cartoon character 🙂

I’m still a little undecided about whether that stripe in the corner of every photograph is a good idea though. I don’t want to cover up every single photograph I take. Once I finish this post I’ll ponder on it a little bit more and see how I feel about it. Maybe it should be smaller, or maybe I should just get rid of it altogether! I really want to draw a little cartoon character on each and every photo this year though. What do you think about it?

The photograph itself is a picture of where I have my quiet little life. I live in this apartment building, inside that front door there, and down the hall just a couple doors to the left. I wanted to take this photo and start out this year long project with it because this is my headquarters. This is my starting point when I go out in any direction to find something (hopefully) interesting to take pictures of.

Lastly, I feel I should mention that this is a bit of a crappy tablet camera that I currently use for this project. A new camera should be coming within the next week or so, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve never owned a proper camera before despite always wanting one. Every time I’m out and about I find things I wish I could take pictures of, and I guess I just never wanted one quite bad enough, eh?

Happy New Year! Here’s to a fantastic and creative 2017 🙂

    Can’t wait to see all the things in our community that inspire you!! I like the little cartoon doodle idea, makes each photo Robert sealed and approved lol

    • Occasional comments like this are what’s going to keep me going! Thank you so much, Robin. I’m glad you’re interested in seeing what I find to photograph 🙂

      And yeah! I like that idea with the cartoon and the seal of approval. I’m going to change it up a bit for tomorrow (and maybe edit this one to match) as I think I have a better idea on how to do it.
