Over the last week, I participated in the week long creative challenge. I will admit that it was pretty difficult to keep coming up with something new each and every day of the week. I would not particularly class myself as an artist of any type. While I do make beats and I do occasionally rap I wouldn’t consider myself a recording artist. As evidenced by three of the seven posts I did this past week, I love making and viewing memes. While I had a kick out of the memes I created, I also do not consider myself a comedian (although you have to give me credit for that Maury Meme). I guess one could consider me a “freelancer” since I dabble in a little bit of everything.
There are several things I could work on. I would like to step up my creativity. I do not really know how I can do this however, as I am not easily inspired like many people are. It takes something compelling to get my creative juices flowing. I think my biggest problem with the creative challenge was that I just could not come up with many good ideas since I had to create something every single day. That was probably the toughest part about the whole process. At times I felt my creations were stale. Another problem I had with the challenge was time consumption. That played a huge part in the quality of what I created. I guess I have to learn to manage my time a little bit better.
As far as my taste goes, I believe that it is evident in my posts. I like cheap comedy as seen in my memes. Seeing people catching z’s on the train always motivates me to make a meme. I also love hip hop as seen in two of my posts. Looking back at it, I wish I could have done more hip hop related stuff. But that is a theme I would consider heavily using should I have to create something again later this semester. In essence, it would be so much easier to create something based off of an entity that has played a major role in my life.
