Why I create one piece of art per week
I make it habit of drawing at least once a week. I don't do it because I want to be an accomplished illustrator someday.
I do it because it is relaxing and stimulates creativity.
It is a mental break from any client work, projects or real life situations that I am dealing with.
Once a week, I try to dedicate just one hour to creating something that is purely for me. I don't get paid for it, it isn't for a client. It is just for my own enjoyment.
Somewhere along the line, a lot of us that are creatives stop creating for ourselves and start creating for others or to make a living. We lose touch with creativity.
I encourage you, try to create just one piece of artwork per week purely for your own enjoyment. It will do wonders for you own creativity and mental health.
