My goals for 2010 and this blog:
- I want to improve my drawing skills enough so that I can feel comfortable putting together my own pitches and/or write/illustrate my own children's stories. To that end I will use my children, the dog and my husband (if willing:-) to sketch every day, and post at least 365 sketches to this blog.
- I also want to take some kind of creative class that will give me an outlet and the opportunity to learn something new.
- I aim to participate and/or exhibit at the CTN-X (CTN Animation Expo) in November 2010.
- Last and most importantly; I want to create a fundraiser in Manda's memory that will help children with life threatening illnesses, such as cancer, have as much normal fun and play as possible (a better quality of life), which would include supporting the research to cure those illnesses. My goal is to do something in the same vein as the Totoro Forest Project, http://www.totoroforestproject.org (I know it's an intimidating thought, but I believe it's important to set your sights high), combining the heroic life of my niece Manda...with my love for art, to do some good.
