1. The Daily Dispatch
In the book 'Show Your Work', author Austin Kleon talks about the act of Daily Dispatch.
Which translates to putting something out about your work everyday.
It's you showing the 'behind-the-scenes' of your work. It doesn't have to be the most interesting or the most exciting thing, its just needs to be there.
so that you'll find what you have to say.
and that helps one to get over the 'BLOCK' of creating or getting "ideas" for their work.
So - Put Something out there. Everyday. ✏️
(read this again kesh. Should you start doing that daily blog you've been wanting to do?)
2. 100 Days
In the year 2015,
I did not have that many "ideas" to draw.
So I created myself a 100-Day Challenge to create Daily. It was one of the most productive things I've ever done in my life. 😌
It GAVE me something to say.
Having to create a piece of 'drawing' everyday will force you to ask questions.
"What should I draw today?" - Maybe something I like.
"what do I like?" - Something that I want to exist but that doesn't exist.
"Cool! I'll draw something that I like, that I want to exist but doesn't exist!"
Great answers are born out of great questions.💬
