Justin Maller nears halfway on Facets

Facets was born almost six months ago, when inspirational digital artist, art director and illustrator Justin Maller challenged himself to create one unique piece of digital art every day for a year. As he approaches the half-way mark, we sat down with the Depthcore Collective co-founder and creative director to find out more about Facets and how it’s panning out…

Computer Arts: Tell us about Facets: you're creating a new image every day for a year – where did you get the idea from?
Justin Maller:
I love making personal work – I've always done a lot of it and enjoyed it immensely. However, I was getting to a point with those pieces where simple obsession would have been a welcome reprieve; I was endlessly revising and fiddling and tweaking. Nothing was ever good enough, and it sapped all of the joy out of the work. I hated everything I made by the time I was done with it.
