Cross-posted from my facebook:
Well, for some reason I have big plans for myself this summer. I probably have 4 different video games I want to play, am going to paint more with real paint on canvas and stuff, really focus on improving my art so I can maybe get in an artbook, I want to sew something, and I want to make a little leather book (i don't really want to make the paper because that's really tricky, but I want to bind and tool and all that) for a little fake travel narrative i'm writing. Oh and I also want to get a pair of roller blades and actually exercise for once.
But I still feel like I'm not doing enough, with work in addition to that!
So I was looking at some videos of Stradivarius violins because I'd never heard one before, and I was thinking how awesome it would be to be a craftsman who could make awesome stuff. I want to learn a craft and make awesome things with my hands. But I have no idea what! So please, give your input as to what skill/craft you think I would do well in
Things not to suggest:
-Drawing/painting: Duh, I already do this every single day of my life.
-Sewing: I'm good at sewing but it's not something I want to consciously get better at, really.
-Music: I played piano for a while and got rusty, but still tinker around with it when I'm bored, and I don't really want to pursue it. I have an electric guitar but two levels of lessons taught me my fingers are waaaaay too short and delicate for the strings
Also since you pretty much have to really stand out to be considered unique (since a lot of people play guitar) I don't really think it'd be worth it to me since I'm not that hot about it anyway. And then for any other instrument, I'd have to go out and buy it and take lessons and stuff, which I don't want to do since it's likely I'll forget about it later.
So please, tell me your ideas! Something unique and cool I can become skilled at!My Lovie :3My Pixel ArtAWESM IndustriesClubs
