Do you ever find that it’s hard to know when you’re actually done with a project?
Is it “done” because the deadline arrived (often the case with me)? Is it done because your totally satisfied (never the case with me)?
The minute I finish something my mind instantly starts coming up with ways that it should be changed or improved.
And I really, really, sincerely, want to change or improve it but there are always other shiny new projects to start (and, I guess, finish and then want to improve) and it’s hard to make the time for the do-over.
But sometimes it bugs me juuuust enough that I must do it! And such was the case with my LA Subway art.
You’ve seen these before.
(I mean, I do realize this is the nichiest of niche products – people who actually LIVE in Los Angeles have no idea we have a subway system so the number of citizens who want commemorative home decor based on it is…..limited).
But the design needed something more done to it and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until it dawned on me (at 3AM – thanks creative brain- do you think you could, I don’t know, function during normal, waking hours occasionally!?)
But now – it’s on to a loooong time coming re-think.
Clean. Simple. But there are some, um, flaws….like, perhaps, the packaging doesn’t say with the product is!?!? Or who made it? Or how it was made?
I think I like it (for now. I’m sure I’ll think of better options later – perhaps 2:30AM or maybe a late-blooming idea at 5?)
Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
