Y’all, I did a thing. I actually finished a project (well, step one) on @skillshare. This is @bydylanm ‘s first exercise in the workshop paired with @thepigeonletters on developing your own style. Our task was to pick 3 elements or principles of design and find example materials. I really enjoyed this! It took me back to my high school art classes (because, let’s face it, my art classes in college did not delve into the basics as much as they should have). This exercise helped me to pick out elements of work that I enjoyed and see how to incorporate it into my own work. Sort of a game changer for me since I stress about copying other people’s work, which usually leaves me to not even try. Learning that viewing work and gaining inspiration is not the same as copying. Thank you Dylan for a great first lesson.
