MOVE TO PART-TIME STUDY

This represents a restart to the project direction as a whole, as well as a personal admission of issues with engagement and involvement with the project so far.

This is a positive step towards a more productive mode of study, where I will be able to generate more considered, realised and meaningful work.

Meeting with John (moving forward, where to focus):

Create a LIVING ARCHIVE

Look at other artists/ designers/ illustrators

Methods for generating Contextual Research:

> Systematic Reading 
> Visiting
> Interviewing
> Questioning and surveying

Reflective Diary

Reflect on findings,

speculate,

then INVESTIGATE (do it!)

This part of the course is the foundation, the good, hard rock to build the project upon

This is where we assess:
RELEVANCE/IRRELEVANCE

Not Philosophy.

Plotting.

Mapping.


In other words:

PICTURES
+
NOTES

(The quality and quantity is down to me.)


Show mistakes: This is where you learn.


Like using another language to describe what you do.

So:

Just do it.

Do it well.

Do as much as you can.

New Work Plan:

> Two Hours a day: relaxed work

Project first > Context second

Move narrative forward (remember it is not anecdotal/personal)

> Monday timetabled session plus 2 days a week

How much can you get done in 2 days only?

exercise in Practicality and Discipline.

>  Monday evenings: Reading immersion

Library

> Summing Up

FIND A RHYTHM
(this may take a while)

PROFESSIONAL DISCIPLINE
(More effective when I have me time)

The lack of structure for an illustrator: it goes both ways.

DRAW

SCULPT

WRITE



Further Notes:


Next term: develop a "subgroup" of narrative creatives (Harry, Jo, Justin). An illustrative network.

 A group to discuss STUFF you have DONE.


Will attend review of Full Time work with rest of FT students as a means of "signing off" and helping find where I stand.
