My New Years resolution

It’s no secret – I hate computers.  Outside of work I avoid them as much as I can.  I mean they are very very useful things, but i hate being tied to and dependant on a machine.

I think the root of my dislike is the way they diminish your creative output.  Many others have written about how going straight to a computer with a design can limit the effectiveness of the outcome.  Mindy from Vidget wrote late last year how she’s found her creativity drop significantly the more she looks at gallery websites around the internet.  This oversaturation of information is exactly how I feel.

When I go to my sketchbook rather than my computer, I can often come up with much better results, and much more quickly.  So my New Years resolution is to use my Moleskin to its fullest, filling it with sketches and drawings, before touching the keyboard & mouse.
