Doctor Gus Weekly-ish Update
New year new projects!
So much fun stuff in store for 2021
by Gustav Karlson on February 27
Well, 2020 certainly upended most of my plans. But I do count myself lucky in that it afforded me ample opportunity to relax, recharge, and refocus.
But it’s a new year and it’s time to start rolling out all sorts of fun new stuff. I’ve got at least 50 new ring designs almost finished. I’m working on new bettons and conchos. And I’m very excited to start sharing all my cosplay and scale modelling projects.
I figure that it’s about time I get serious about actually using this blogging feature of my website here. Posting on social media is all well and good, but it’s not suited for all of my musing requirements. Some of these multipart projects I’m working on will benefit from an article style presentation. So I think I’ve figured out a good workflow now (hopefully).
Part of this is simply a matter of maintaining focus. It’s so easy to lose track of things when you’re a self-employed one-man-band as I am. My creative process is very fluid and it serves me well. However, when it comes to social media and stuff my attention wavers. The trick is going to be structuring all this in a way that makes it easy for me to share all my updates.
I tend to be a perfectionist. And often that means a reluctance to share my works in progress. But hopefully this blog can be a repository of those updates. And in the process it will get me into a new rhythm of progress and posting. That’s the idea anyway.
