I’m not sure if I would consider myself an artist, but I would like to be an artist that dabbles in various kinds of designs. I think I would like to be an artist who does not set out with a particular goal in mind but rather discovers a place to start and work my way from there. This way, I never get off track or find myself disappointed if something does not come out how I originally imagined it. Instead I simply can be happy with what I have created. This would also allow me to find inspiration in everything and to keep an eye open for that said inspiration. For example, this has influenced how I customized my site because I have designed the ds106 one to look different than my main domain and my other two subdomains. I use this same method when I write, which is how I express my creativity for my own enjoyment. I start out with a vague idea in mind and then allow the story to take me wherever it wants. However, as an artist, I need to get more comfortable sharing my work. For example, I will not let anyone see it because I am always trying to reach perfection with it, which of course will never happen. I need to let go of this idea of perfection and learn to be happy with less than perfect.
