    How to come up with creative ideas for projects

    How to come up with creative ideas for projects
    Posted on

    Ever since I started Papertint, I’ve been thinking a lot about ways to organize my art into projects, because I feel like it gives more meaning to my practice, and gives me a chance to improve my skills on a particular theme or subject. 

    These are the things that helped me come up with ideas for projects, so if you’re looking for some inspiration, I hope they can help you too.

    This book embodies my work created over 100 days, which consisted of making a painting a day and sending it to someone around the world. At the end of the project, I wanted to create a book of all the paintings, as a reflection of the journey and the way I got to virtually meet art lovers everywhere. This is part 1 of a series of blog posts that will explain the whole process of creating a book, which I hope will inspire others to explore their creativity as well.

    Art is as much about self reflection, as it is about connection. I enjoyed sharing my 100 paintings with people around the world, and now I’d like to take that connection further by starting a new interview series on my blog, called 100 Days of Papertint Conversations. I will be interviewing winners from my creative challenge, to learn more about their background and how they connect with art.

    While staying in New York, we took to the streets to temporarily showcase Papertint art. We walked to 11 different spots to find interesting daily life backdrops and interacted with locals. Every place was documented with photographs and videos, resulting in one of the most interesting art projects I’ve taken part in. The paintings were in a place just long enough to be documented, and then we changed to a new location.
