Day 17 of flow

August 9th, 2012

Wow. 17 days since I started this whole process of developing a new habit and here I am, a little over 2 weeks into it and what I saw as 3 unique habits have merged into a single ├╝ber habit. Initially I wanted to develop my Conceptual Thinking, Drawing and Writing skills. Everything was going great and at around day 15 I had a breakthrough. My standard Lateral Thinking process of utilizing a trigger word to generate ideas was used to create a synopsis for a story which then in turn informed the comic strip process I was developing. Personally it was a huge mind opener for me. Anyway I could go on and on about all of this but I might be better served by just posting my results:

Day 14 of flow

August 6th, 2012

Making some great progress with this whole habit forming process. Again, I’m currently focused on developing my Conceptual Thinking, Drawing and Writing skills. I take about 30 minutes a day to perform these tasks, and this weekend I had a breakthrough. I’ve developed this little technique of drawing out comic panels on a single page and then filling in the panels with imagery. This weekend I decided to write some narrative bits to the side of the panels, and something magical happened. I have merged my writing and drawing to become a single process. This has been really exciting for me, because it is tapping into a richer field of automatic writing I am familiar with. It’s as if my writing and drawing have become one event. Anyway, I know the process isn’t new or revolutionary, but it is one that I haven’t really tried to develop. Here are some snapshots which lead up to the discovery:

The breakthrough of what happens when I bind the panels to a narrative:
