It's August. Summer is in full, glorious swing. Ideally, you're sprawled across a towel lakeside, or cruising through a gorgeous countryside. But if you're like us and an artist, the reality involves long, solitary days in the studio. So we've come up with some fun tips to help you defeat any unproductive feelings isolation.
- Spruce up your workspace! We've added a collaborative worktable to our showroom, and we're planning to paint one of our walls with chalk paint. Sprucing up your studio is an excellent project during the slower months, and will surely impress your clients in the future.
- Start a collaborative social media project; we recently celebrated "go fly a kite day" with photographers all over the country, and we did it from our desks! (visit @cypressalbums on Instagram to see) Social media is a great way to connect with friends, peers, & mentors, and it's even better if it encourages you to create a new series of work.
- Discover your favorite walk. There are gorgeous walks in every city- we love the Silverlake Reservoir & Griffith Park. Sometimes you just need to ramble out your front door and get started. There is no better cure for a dull imagination than a long walk. We guarantee you'll return with a fresh page of ideas and a much calmer mind.
