Some Exciting New Stuff for the Blog!

I’m excited to share with you guys some new ideas I’m going to be working on for 12 Months of Creativity! This blog has meandered a lot this year… which is great. There’s been a lot of exploring and feeling things out, and tons of learning. Now, I’m feeling ready to get it back to the main focus, but with a slight shift. When I started this blog and my 2011 project, my goals were simple. It was about giving myself permission to play – to create whatever excites me without over thinking it and worrying whether its a “good” idea or not. To try new things with childlike wonder and curiosity. To learn to not judge my own creative abilities and get more familiar with my own individual creative process. I came away with all of this and much more. But it would not have been nearly as rich an experience without all the other people who have been reading, liking, sharing, cheering and following along.

That’s why I’ve decided to start making this space a little more about all of you! This means monthly creative challenges with themes to stretch your mind, heart, and skills. And posts on my process of creativity as well as interviews with other creatives sharing their processes and pitfalls. And of course… if there is anything else you’d like to see that you’re not seeing, I invite you to share that with me. I want this to be a space that celebrates the idea that creativity breeds even more creativity. And that everyone deserves to be in touch with their creative side – no matter if you can or cannot draw a straight line (can anyone actually DO that?). So please let me know what you’re liking and not liking as I begin venturing into adding this new content! See you there!

    So, I am really confused right now. I am trying to do art. But what is the difference between design and art? In design, we have concepts just like we have in art. It would be really interesting to find out what other people here see as art. Is it about the skill? I mean, I know how to paint, I know how to do concepts. Does that make me an artist? As a designer, that thinks rational, I find it hard to understand what art is. Do you know?

    • Hey lady! My first thought on your question is… What’s it matter! Its all a great big wonderful world of creativity! :) I suppose if u wanted to define the two.. The goal of design is to meet a need or serve a function. It is a creative service. Whereas art exists to express one’s self and does not have to have a use or function. Either can overlap, some art can be considered design and some design can be seen as art. Hope that helps!
