Organization and Art

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 29, 2018, 11:06 AM


On the Go



20180818 101839 by taho


When I'm disorganized, it radiates into every area of my life. For me, organization enables productivity. I travel often (flying at least 2-3x a month) and have a family so keeping track of things is a must. I've written advice for artists in the past of a different mindset. I hope you enjoy my updated view on this topic!


Workplace

Having a workspace, even a small one, is a must. Even if you cannot maintain the same place, try to maintain a setup that you can assemble quickly. Here you can see my watercolor and sketch materials. They don't take up a lot of space, but they are (for me) conducive to an efficient workflow. Arrange things in a way that are neat but also coincide with how you work. The better you are at this the easier you'll find yourself able to create even when on the go or in new settings.


Sketchbooks


20180807 182510 by taho


I've recently posted on my social media that I'm putting a pause on buying sketchbooks. I'm also working to consolidate sketches from a number of books into one or two. It's nice to keep work but it becomes harder to revisit an idea or find a specific work when there's just too much of it. You can opt for digital organization but personally I find that having a tangible collection of work helps me decide on an area of focus better i.e. characters, environment, etc. Also, if you notice an ocean of characters and a scarcity of props or environment, you have a physical reminder that you may need to branch out a little more.

Have you read these?
