Goals for 2012

Monday, January 9, 2012

Twenty Eleven is now over and we are now diving headfirst in to twenty twelve. The following is my list of goals for this year.

  • Make a (decent) profit from Blueberry Arts (including oh-no)
  • Try to do a water color and or oil painting every month for the “Painting of the Month”
  • Be more social with my fans on social networking.
  • Reboot (but not rebrand) Whiskey Falls in color on it’s own site again and run on Sherpa through the end of the year.
  • Put the first four years of OH-NO back online.
  • Blog more.
  • Eat better and exercise (or at least give it a good try)
  • Keep in better touch with friends.
  • Catch up on drawing Whiskey Falls and release a book sometime this year.
  • Create a new OH-NO Book in color collecting the first two books.
  • Enter the Cartoonist Studio contest this year (don’t miss out like you did last year)
  • Be the best daddy I can to my little girl.
  • Focus more on black and white photography.
    • Get a dedicated film scanner, chemistry and an HD monitor from the sale of your old unused scanner and old laptop.
  • Sell something on ebay weekly (if not more) and put money into the BBA Fund.
  • Make a two minute animated pilot for Whiskey Falls.
  • Start a podcast (walters podcast of doom and my own review show) (Get a new mic and mixer for this)
  • Actually do the AOM 30 day challenge this year (c’mon it will be fun)
  • Find a better paying day job, possibly in the field of Art
  • Take classes on InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop so I can be proficient in them
  • Give Lorin sometime to breath away from the baby
  • Take time to enjoy the world around you.
  • Finally go through that crate of magazines I don’t read and reduce the clutter in all parts of my life.
  • Get some mud on the tires of the ol Jeep.
  • Hide and Seek some Geocaches.
  • Introduce Lottie to nature, camping and hiking.
  • Make Lorin and Lottie feel special.
  • Make sure Rosemary feels thanked for everything she has done for us.
  • Call my mother (and possibly send a postcard every once in a while)
  • Drastically reduce my debt and put away some money to save for a home.
  • Look back on this list at the end of the year and see how well I did.

So that’s my list of goals. It was mostly written as it spilled from my brain. I may add to it, but I will not subtract. It will be interesting to see what was accomplished and what was not. Wish me luck.
