I Aim What I Aim

Being this is the beginning of a fledgling new year I thought it might be pertinent to publicly lay out my goals for 2013.  You could call them resolutions, though I prefer to think of them as intentions.

What I Aim To Accomplish Over The Next 12 Months:

(in no particular order)

  • Secure at least one solo show for ongoing Slim Shady series.
  • Get a piece or two in a group show.
  • Secure another show for Survival Games, whether just drawings or full installation.
  • Complete at least half of new bat installation (500 bat figures).
  • Secure an “in process” show of bat installation.
  • Have newest work professionally documented.
  • Apply for a grant to write narratives about Slim Shady (with QR Codes).
  • Get work in YVR display cases.
  • Secure a making residency somewhere warm during Vancouver’s cold, rainy months.
  • Secure a networking residency.
  • Launch revamped website.
  • Maintain consistent blogging practice.
  • Be more active on social media.
  • Sell at least one original piece of work.
  • Research products/licensing with an aim to increase arts related income.
  • Organize studio swap with Fredericton artist Stephen May.
  • Incorporate ukulele playing into LFM orchestra.
  • Work on at least one collaboration with another artist/artists.
  • Research MFA programs.
  • Maintain an average of 15 hours art production per week during non-deadline times.

I’ll admit it is an ambitious list – but with my recently acquired accountability partners* I feel like I’m up for a whiz-bang year.

What about you?  What’s on your list of endeavors for 2013?
