Doing client work is an amazing way to get your art and designs out there, but creating designs on your own personal time is essential to improving your skills. Here are the reasons why you should do them:
Since there are no criteria or rules given by moms, you will be allowed to explore your own style when making a design. Through this, you can fine-tune your works and techniques to help you grow as an artist. Having your own style can also make you unique as an artist.
Personal projects don’t have deadlines. They also don’t have limitations on what you can and cannot do. Therefore, these projects will help you discover more about yourself on how you work, what tickles your imagination and creativity, and the other areas that you can improve on.
These projects are completely personal. After all the hard work and effort put into someone else’s project, it’s time to create something exclusively for you — at your own time, at your own pace. This is what makes it fun.
This is a work you will enjoy creating and will help you go back to your roots. It will remind you of why you began making art in the first place. It will help you reconnect with your passion and artistic identity.
