So after working in a grueling business job in NYC for something like nine months, I finally managed to switch occupations and take an improvisational comedy class to boot.
I'm pretty sure it saved my life.
Now the floodgate's open and my right brain is once again committed to making me write, cartoon, perform, and animate like I used to in those carefree days before university. I'm about to take my third improv class, my first formal computer animation class (at SVA no less!), and my second screenwriting class.
My question to AD though is this:
Do any of you live or swear by an art routine? A rote pattern by which you create art and follow strictly throughout your week?
I keep getting wound up by all the priorities of the day and by the uncertainties of my future in art and I need a better way of handling my obligations. Since I'm so used to routines in my work, I figure the best thing to do would be to rein in my left-brained side to better serve my portfolio.
How do y'all feel?
