2014 Personal Project Resolutions: A Retrospective
As I’ve tried to do for the past few years during holiday season, last year I made three large personal resolutions to help inspire my personal and professional work. Here is where I review my success as well as what eventually came from these resolutions.
- Throw a portaits party: This in fact did not happen. I never had the chance to throw a portraits party like I truly wanted to. I hope to do so next year, but in the meantime I did have several portraiture opportunities with friends this past year.Some were for projects, like headshots, and some were for MFMA, and some were for fun. Whichever reason, here is a recap of some of my favorite portraits I took from 2014:
- More mixed media projects: This one I truly neglected. Aside from my Glasses piece from the beginning of 2014 and my contribution to the Hooley Collaborative Coloring Party, I really did not focus on my mixed media work this year. I primarily focused on my freelance work with photography and design.This year I’ve structured a resolution I’ll talk about in a following post in order to help motivate my mixed media work.
- Thematic Monthly Page Challenge: Luckily, I did complete this resolution and have picked twelve images from each month to show now. This challenge was one I did in the year 2013, but for 2014 I made myself look for a theme each month and capitalize on that.Have a look:
January 2014 | Monthly Theme: Light + Shadows
February 2014 | Monthly Theme: Typography
March 2014 | Monthly theme: Faces
April 2014 | Monthly Theme: Lines
May 2014 | Monthly Theme: Repeated Patterns
June 2014 | Monthly Theme: Philadelphia Architecture – Old & New
July 2014 | Monthly Theme: Color – High Saturation
August 2014 | Monthly Theme: When I look down …
September 2014 | Monthly Theme: Natural Light
October 2014 | Monthly Theme: Found Patterns
November 2014 | Monthly Theme: Shadows & Light
December 2014 | Monthly Theme: Family & Friendship
Coming soon will be a recap of my resolutions for 2015. I’ve taken parts of what I learned from this years accomplishments, looked forward to the goals I’ve set myself for this year and determined what challenges will help me grow as an artist personally and professionally.
