Hello everyone, it's me again. Today I am here to tell you about my goals and plans moving towards the end of the year. As it is currently the second of December, I'd like to have some confidence in my skills and work ethic, and my plan to prove it to myself is to make $1000 during the month of December. I currently am working on a couple of projects and my expected profit is $235/1000. Based on that I know this goal is doable, it's only the second day of December after all, and as Christmas is coming up I'm sure there are a lot of people looking for Christmas commissions, so I don't think this is such a far goal. Honestly, I hope I'm undershooting. Again, this is a test for me to prove my work ethic, quality of work, and consistency to stick to my goals.
The website Update, That is coming. As mentioned previously I do have some current projects I'm working on so it will be delayed while I focus on those, but the deadlines for both are coming rather quickly, so I can afford to focus on the update in the later part of the month. I have a few mockups and I'm using Robaato.art as a template to build my website, alongside this I intend to buy a new main domain. I cant spoil yet though, because I don't want someone else to buy it.
Another thing I want to do is get an iPad so I can draw on the go. a lot of my future work is going to be very time consuming, and in my current situation setting up my work area for art is a hassle, so having something compact, portable, powerful, and acclaimed to work with would be ideal. I plan to use the money I make in December, provided I reach the goal, to buy an old version but like not OLD old iPad pro and apple pencil. I want to be able to put down ideas and such and be able to carry my workspace everywhere. So that's where that's gonna come in.
I also do intend to start making YouTube videos. I have had scripts written for months and I have a couple of audio recordings of me reading my scripts and such. This however is something I want to start in 2022, after I have settled into my current workstyle. alongside other fundraising opportunities. since my goal for Dec 2021 is to make net $1K, my goal for the whole year of 2022 is to make net $10K. and I want to eventually start saving so I can move out of Milwaukee. There aren't many opportunities for artists here, and most are looking for the type to do murals and stuff. we don't have a great comics industry or anything like that, so I'm thinking I'll move to Austin. Texas has a lot of popular Black creators like RDCWorld1, the black animation crew on YouTube. (Devontethe1, YoYo808, StanleyAnimations, etc. etc.) I heard it's not as expensive as New York, so that's currently my top place, but moving would be decently far in the future as I don't have experience living alone yet and 10k a year isn't enough to survive alone. so that's one of my far goals.
For personal goals I want to start going to the Gym and getting back into shape, clearing up my skin, starting my loc journey (currently have an afro, have been wanting Dreads/Locs since April, getting glasses, improving my hygiene and all that other stuff. I have it all written down but you guys came here for my art so I won't take up much more of your time.
Anyways, that's about it. Thanks for reading once again, and if you need art or know someone who needs art and are willing to help me achieve my goals, be sure to recommend me. I promise you I'll be up to the task.
This is Jasen, signing out. See you in a week or two.
