2014 Art Stats

As some of you may remember, I like to keep track of how much art I complete every year. At the start of 2014, I had been hoping to accomplish more than I did in 2013.

Um, yeah…that didn’t happen. I wasn’t even able to complete enough to beat my stats for 2011, despite working on art every single day without fail…


I just…ugh. *digs self a grave to fall into and never crawl out from*

  1. Oh Cool! I don't have a tracker per sé, but I do have different folders separated by year. I made less illustration than last year, but I did get paid for more. So that's a plus ;)

  2. I think many of us had a rough 2014. I try not to compare output with other years, because every year has different distractions. But I'm working on something I love now, so I hope you find happiness too. That's most important! Have a wonderful new year! :)

  3. That's neat you keep track of it. And yeah, 2014 was a rough year for lots of us. Here's to a great 2015! :)

  4. Progress is still progress. At least you stayed level with 2011. You may have been learning other things in 2014 too that couldn't be tracked. I didn't meet my book goal either, but I'm sticking with it. Staying the course, and you should too. You have lots of talent to share :) Wishing you a prosperous 2015!

  5. Don't beat yourself up over it. At least you're still creating! That's the important thing.

  6. I have to agree with everyone here. I mean, yeah it sucks when you haven't met the progress you're accustomed to, but you are still creating and honestly 2014 really did seem to be a sucky year as a whole for lots of creative types, myself included. Hopefully 2015 is better for you. You know I'll be cheering you on along the way! :D

  7. I think I've said it again, but it's really good that you keep track of your productivity. I don't do it as well as you, I just say something like: in 2014 I finished one novel and a half novel! :) hehe but since I still have to edit, I don't know if I can say that it's actually finished! *sighs*

    I wish 2015 to be THE year for you, Heather. Both in creativity and life.

  8. Setting goals is great, just don't beat yourself up if you don't reach them all the time. Creativity doesn't happen on demand, does it? At least anything I try of a creative nature doesn't. And the more I push the less creative I become.

    Have a great new year.

  9. And that's totally okay. You made progress. Life gets in the way and unexpected complications leave us needing to reevaluate goals. I look at it as, "Well, I got X-AMOUNT more done than I had before." Life is good. One day at a time, eh?

    Oh, and happy 2015!

  10. aw, don't feel bad about it! life happens, and besides, it's the quality of he work that counts, not the quantity! and your echo webstrip keeps us coming back wantign for more, so ... happy new year, Heather! :-)

  11. well, i think quality counts - each year you improve, right? add that to your stats! quality vs quantity!

    i'm sure you'll do great in 2015!

  12. You may not have hit your goal, but you made progress. That's what matters. Don't beat yourself up. Things happen. Life happens.

  13. Did you produce art in 2014 that you're proud of? (You know you did.) Then 2014 was a successful year. Now let's see what 2015 has to offer.
