It’s been hard working out time to sit down and actually MAKE ART WORK. But it’s not like i’ve not been making art! I’m getting contributors together to create a publication about the Art school in the art school in Syracuse, NY. I’m trying to get teaching experience. I now work at Waterstones and then there’s the work i’ve been doing for sheffooo Docccfesstttt! (of which im super dooper excited for!)
Not to mention I got work accepted for the #rank exhibition in Miami, USA. More info on that laterz/. So i’m making work for that!
But i need an actual practice time! and by writing it here i know that it will affirm it in my mind.
Interestingly though, this is how j k rOWLING did the Harry Potter series.
Kinda cool; i’m defo going to steal this method and see if it works for me.
The author and mastermind of the whole Harry Potter universe uses plain old notebook paper and a ballpoint pen to develop the intricate plot structures of her books. Down the y-axis, she lists chapter numbers and a month-based chronology, and along the x-axis she lists various attributes of each chapter like title, events and even prophesies integral to each segment of the book.
I think this is fascinating and I’m so curious to know what other authors use similar, low-fidelity planning methods. Also, it goes to show that even in a multimedia age, most good ideas start with a pen and paper.
humble beginnings or what?!
