The first Illustration Friday challenge word of 2011 is, fittingly, “resolutions”.
I usually don’t make New Year’s Resolutions, but this year I thought I would attempt to do one million drawings. That sounded pretty cool. So, I did the math (with a calculator I’m an artist, after all). In order for me to fulfill my goal of one million drawings in 2011, I would have to create two thousand seven hundred forty every day. This would allow me to skip a few here and there over the course of a year, in case there are some days that I am not feeling particularly creative. At that rate, I will be on course to create one million one hundred drawings. Today, however, is January third and, so far, I have done three illustrations in 2011. I am currently eight thousand two hundred seventeen drawings behind schedule.
My other resolution was to try to be nicer to people, but fuck that.
