We’re very excited about everything that we’ve got for you in 2012,so we asked a few members of the team to tell us their hopes and resolutions for 2012.
Sarah: I’ve never kept my New Years Resolutions. The idea of trying to stick to something for a whole year seems futile, especially since I’ve learnt that a lot can change in 12 months. So as 2011 moved into 2012, I decided to spend my New Years Eve the way I wanted to spend the rest of my year. And I did: in Dublin, with my best friend drinking whiskey and watching some bloody good music. I’d say that this year should be successful after that. Happy 2012 everyone!
Anna: This New Year was not crazy. It was not filled with the people or places I love. Instead it was filled with just me. Which was probably quite significant, as this year I fulfilled a whole lot of dreams and resolutions. So when I was sitting in the bath with a glass of wine and the clock struck midnight, instead of saying ‘This year I want…’ I said ‘Well done’.
Caroline:This time last year I couldn’t have imagined how eventful 2011 would be and so have a good feeling that 2012 will be just as exciting! I’ve never been very good at making new years resolutions and so just hope to have a happy and successful year ahead with my graduation in July, making the start of a new stage of my life as an illustrator.
Letty: Historically I have not been the best at new years resolutions, in fact it would be fair to say I’ve been one of the worst, I’ve never kept one in my life. This year I have made a resolution I’m determined to keep, one drawing a day in 2012. It’s important to stress I’m not trying to hone my drawing skills by doing this; my aim is to emphasise my lack of them. I’ve never been able draw realistically, but I always pick up a pen expecting to be able to, I’m hoping that by doing it everyday I might accept my short comings, and who knows maybe I’ll find something to like about my drawings too.
Rhiannon: I made my first New Year’s resolution twelve months ago. When 2011 came around I realised I was bored and needed to do more stuff, so I decided to fill my year with new experiences. Going to gigs, sight-seeing in Paris, writing for publications (Eden Bath included!), even weird things like having my feet nibbled by fish; last year converted me to the way of the NYR. This year my plan is to be more creative. I might just start by crafting a cute fabric bird!
