The next question is usually Time. Where are you going to get the time. Well… I’ve already read over 300 books this year, so I’m going to swap some reading time out for art time for the length of this challege and see how I feel at the end of it.

What do I need to do to make this happen?
1. Clean my living room up and finish converting it to a working office, with space for art.

2. Move my setup to my new chair and desk.

3. Clean up the old desk.

4. Set up shelves.

5. Unpack all the art supplies and refrence books and put them away.

6. Set up video capture card, and pc for recording for vlog and animations.

7. Setup new box with windows.

8. Setup old box with linux for coding.

9. I dunno we will see when we get there, that’s already a lot to do.
