I hope you all had a fantastic holiday, and that you've got 2015 off on the right foot. This is pretty important, because in many cases we all have lots to do for school, work, or life, and for many of us this takes us away from our Creative Goals! Unless ART is your profession, chances are you have to find ways to incorporate a more creative lifestyle just like you would a workout routine! We're all trying our best.
Have you made plans to incorporate more creativity into your life in 2015?
I have. I'm taking more photos and posting them regularly using the new DeviantArt Mobile App
, and I'm placing my Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid
next to the TV so that I can draw while watching mindless television. I will continue (like last year) to sketch and draw whenever I'm traveling on airplanes, or whenever I need to prepare for a logically oriented task. I recommend drawing for 15 minutes before you do your math homework! It really seems to help me before I look at spreadsheets and stuff.What do you plan to do to lead an even more creative life in 2015?
Meanwhile, a quick photoblog from the break. Viktoria, Bentley, Royce and I Airstreaming through Arizona from California for a couple of weeks beginning December 20th through January 3rd. We planned to drive much farther, but Arizona was so nice we just hung around! We stopped in Sedona, Lake Roosevelt, Apache Lake, Canyon Lake, Lake Havasu, the Salton Sea, Joshua Tree, Phoenix,
and even a crazy Hot Springs RV Resort full of nude people.
This photo is real, taken at night, no filters, straight from the camera. Joshua Tree, and our Airstream for the week!
The pups gettin' some chow in the morning after arriving to Roosevelt Lake.
Viktoria and I having some fun in Sedona. We'd never been, really pretty place!
We fell in love with the Airstream that we rented. Home away from home! And we came back super relaxed..
Campfire after campfire, we substituted ghost stories for funny stories and laughed our asses off! This was Xmas Eve.
Off-roading in Sedona.
Hangin' in the Airstream on a day Viktoria had to report to work remotely.
Bentley (foreground) & Royce rest after running wild through Joshua Tree National Park!
I kept the shutter open for a few seconds on this one, so you can see the stars we were seeing!
Toying around with a green laser, Bentley, & the 5D MII with an open shutter.
I like this the best... where'd it go? Oop, there it is!
The dam between Roosevelt and Apache lakes in Arizona.
And from a distance. Heavenly!
Breakfast / Roosevelt Lake.
Found a junk yard and photo bombed it! Dork!
Anyone play Catan? We love it. Bentley does too, which is why he's yawning.....
Crossing the real London Bridge in Lake Havasu. It fell down! ... And ended up in Arizona?? This is a job for Wikipedia to explain...
