Word: WIP (aka Work In Progress)
Definition: a project that is onward toward a final destination
Synonyms: advance, going, headway, passage
What do I mean by WIP (work in progress), well it’s quite simple! Lately I’ve been having a bit of an art road block (so to say). My last series was such a success to me, that I feel like I can’t find anything else to draw. This poses a real problem, considering that the moment I finish one piece of art, I tend to get side tracked and leave the next project in the dust.
Let’s be honest here, I just have a serious problem. Instead of looking at an upcoming series as the “next big thing”, I think of it this way, “It wont be as good as the last”. Terrible! That is just a horrible way to look at any future work!
For now however I am really trying my best to do multiple series in the hopes that one of them will inspire me to really push for at least 5 images total. I know that’s not a lot for a series, but it is the right step in progression.
So, what does that mean? Well, if I can accomplish multiple series of 5 images, then I could maybe produce a series that has 6 or 8 or maybe more the next time I come up with a series.
A collection in Fashion has something always in common with all of its designs. whether it be the accessories added, the color, fabrics and other such things included the collection always has something that ties it together. Maybe my current series has something that ties it to the last series? If that is the case, then my collection is not 5 in each series, but 10 in total. Well, that is, if I can finish this next series of images.
Here’s to working forward!
