Drafts on drafts on drafts...

For every design I release, I have five or more drafts in progress. Some won't ever be released, some are barely more than scratch paper and doodles, but each is an important part of my process.

I keep all of my old sketchbooks and I look back through them every few months. Why should it be any different digitally? I mean I know it's kind of the point... but I can't stand to delete these ideas, no matter how flawed. 

The problem is when I have something 95% done... and I can't pull the trigger. I want to keep tweaking, making it better.... especially when I'm trying to pay tribute to someone or something. Art is great, but for me, the point is making something that means something. Even if it only means something to me... I need to be proud of it. I don't want to look back and wish I hadn't published something just because it's been some time since the last one was launched.

I want to spend more time working, but working meaningfully. With goals in mind, some schedule... but finding that balance won't be easy. 

Wish me luck <3 xoxo
