With the End in View

With the End in View
The one thing that helps me to get a project conceived, planned, and executed is by back planning from the end back to the start point.  For instance, if I need a completed piece ready to reproduce at the end of March, I evaluate and plan based on the time available.  This means I have eight weeks to do design work, planning the layout, lining paper & doing sample lettering.  Then it’s time to do the actual lettering, make repairs and erase lines.  Because I practice lettering regularly, I have a good idea of how much time each part of the project will take.  So I mark out time in my schedule each week with some leeway to get the project completed about four days prior to the deadline.  That’s my sanity gap.
