Making the process and inspiration the fun part:
As creatives, we face the challenge of consistently creating artwork that inspires both ourselves and our audience. We are under pressure to come up with new ideas, execute them flawlessly, meet deadlines, and then do it all over again. It’s easy to fall into a negative feedback loop and experience burnout. So, how do we avoid this and keep loving what we do?
In my experience, it’s all about mindset and looking at challenges in a positive way. Instead of feeling like every good idea has already been done, I try to have fun searching for inspiration and keeping an open mind. I find that going to museum exhibits is a great way to find inspiration, rather than just scrolling through social media.
Creating artwork can be a grueling process, especially when it comes to larger projects like painting the side of a building. It takes patience, physical ability, and a positive mindset. Being kind to oneself is key to getting through the tough stuff.
I want to share my journey of how my lettering career quickly pivoted into murals and what I’ve learned after installing over 100 murals in the past 5 years. I tend to say “yes” to things I’ve never done before, which has led me on some amazing adventures. Staying on my toes has gotten me to where I am today, and I would love to share my learnings with you.
Remember, consistency is key even if the work isn’t. The work itself never gets easier, but we can always strive to get better. Let’s keep creating and inspiring others!
