June Art Goals


Welp, it’s been a while since I set some monthly art goals, wanna know why? Well my last set of goals made me into a complete mess!! I set goals that I just could not keep up with, which made me feel really crappy about myself & my work, and ultimately burnt me out. So why am I back making more goals? Am I daft?! Maybe.. but I really do believe that goal setting is vital for self-improvement, so I have three new goals for this month. I’ve also purposefully made the goals quite easy to accomplish just so I can ease myself back into this process.. and not go through what happened last time!! So here are the three things I’m going to be focusing on this month!

The most foolproof way get better at something, is just to keep doing it! If I wanna get better at illustrating then I need to make more illustrations! Since I’m doing my #100days project at the moment I have been barely drawing anything else as it’s been keeping me quite busy, I think I can manage to get one separate illustration completed each week though!

I adore looking at plants & insects, and I really enjoy drawing them too! My illustrations have featured a number of beetles and moths in the past but I would love to expand my repertoire and get even more creepy-crawlies involved. Plants too, I love drawing different types of leaves but I really struggle with flowers, so getting some practice in will be super helpful!

Pretty much all of my artwork is done in black indian ink right now and I really love the medium, but I’m not really playing around with it and seeing what it can do. I know that ink is incredibly versatile, I just haven’t been versatile with it yet. This is the month where I will change that and hopefully develop some new techniques for my work!

As I said they’re easy goals, but it’s also very easy to fail at any goal so I think these are a good restart point for me. If I don’t manage all of them then I’m going to try to not beat myself up about it, I can’t afford to hit another art block like the last one!

​Let me know what you think of the goals I’ve set and if you have any goals for this month!
