Art Summaries 2022 🖌️
Art Summary 2022
2022 is coming to an end. that means its time to make art summaries again :'D or well, I already did.
My year was quite productive again. Didn't knew what to pick for each month because I draw too much :S But I tried making a mix of everything kinda. No template, decided to make my very own layout this year because I wasn't really a fan of any of the existing ones.
Come and share your art summary for this year, I always love seeing those.
Did you improve or learn anything new? Any goals for 2023?
Share anything else you like
Here are a few templates you can use:
- by Espiphantom / simple, squares
- by Tindy_pic / any year / cool shapes
- by Theartarmature / simple, squares
- by chesire-daydreamer / simple / any year
- by AkeboshiKinsei / simple/ cool shapes
Aw, you beat me to making my yearly thread :,D
I won't be able to post mine until after Christmas, but here's some templates:
- Page with circles
Pepperly aw nuu ;w; I just felt like doing a thread after I did my summary because I couldn't find one that's already been made. Thanks for sharing templates! Completely forgot to link some myself
Yeah I was planning on posting the thread this weekend, haha. Let everyone get their holiday pics out if they've got them, first. I had tons more but most have been deleted off da (I don't blame them)
(xposted on my tumblr)
I don't think I'm going to end up drawing anything that will replace the current December piece, so I'll go ahead and post! My 2022 summary ended up being entirely Metro 2033 themed, because it's the one thing that I consistently drew at least one piece for from month to month (and in fact, some months, it's the only thing I ended up drawing. I tried making an additional summary with no Metro on it and it had a ton of blank spots.) As a result I'm not super proud of everything on this summary, but I'm proud of the cumulative effort and end result.
To compare, my 2021 year end summary seemed to have a lot more fully finished stuff, but as I recall I had a lot of trouble choosing more than a couple of things I was *really* proud of, and I had some blank spots then too. Some months I only drew a single thing, or nothing at all. And I had a lot more fun this year it seems!
I feel like I learned a lot about colors and values. I think my anatomy improved as well by the end of it! I'm thrilled with how the past few months of work have come out, and there's still so much I want to draw. I'm hoping going into 2023 that I can end next year with each month having a finished and fully realized piece that I'm really proud of, and I also plan to try out animating starting soon.
I got the template from here :)
Still need to post this offsite, but here's mine (and I did a more design-y thing this year!)
Art-wise I think I'm finally getting less intimidated by doing backgrounds. They're not as visible here bc it's just thumbnails but comparing June vs December, I'm a lot more confident with making them. ( june & dec's pics for reference). I don't have many solid goals or resolutions for 2023 yet though? But ig continuing to do backgrounds and full-illustrations would be cool
second half of the year (post artfight) i barely drew anything so it was hard to fill this out and im genuinely kinda sad that i had nothing for september :( but i want my 2023 resolution to be to draw consistently despite lack of motivation, executive dysfunction, work and whatever else. i also wanna draw the ideas i never really got around to doing... do more experimental shit and get ambitious with everything. idk how that will pan out (probably wont) but i can at least try :P
I'm a lot happier with my art this year! I'm far from where I wanna be, but I feel this year greatly helped me get closer! This year's goal was to do a B-Day art of all my oc's on this account. It helped me draw OC's I barely drew, and helped me find out which ones didn't have that spark of joy anymore. Darkening my shading helped a lot, and I think I got a bit better at anatomy too.
Next year's goal is to feel more confident with different poses and work on anatomy more. I might try backgrounds, but idk yet. I do wanna try and make refs for some of my human oc's at the very least though
I wasn't able to draw much this year due to lack of motivation/ energy. ): Most art were rough sketches and the like. I can't really tell if I've improved much (or at all) this year, but I was able to find a new thing to be interested in (Twisted Wonderland), and I started drawing more self-indulgent stuff that made me happy, so it's not all too bad 👍 I find it funny that you can tell the exact moment I fell into my brainrot, ahah--
As for goals: honestly, I think setting a goal for myself is too much pressure for me (lol) so I'd just like to be able to continue drawing things that make me happy.
Self made my own template and here's my art summary for 2022! Honestly when making this I really felt proud of my art, 2022 is the year my style really started to gain it's distinct sort of taste and my methods while experimental are starting to get more consistent in a way I feel happy doing-
2022 is general has been a year filled with unexpected stuff, but I am surprisingly very happy looking at all the art I have made this year and looking back! :D
(Also crossposted onto my Twitter and on my Newgrounds - You can find the CLIP , PSD and PNG files of the template I made (free to use, just credit me!) in this Google Drive folder )
Another year of 'trying to maintain my skill level so it won't fall further'. Aug-Dec are pretty much just OCs whom I use in a RP group and draw nothing but their pics for registration and the group's events.

2022: the UN International Year Of Glass
On 18th May 2021 the UN General Council approved a joint application by the International Commission on Glass (ICG), the Community of Glass Associations (CGA) and ICOM-Glass that 2022 be declared a United Nations International Year of Glass . The Year is is now celebrating the essential role Glass has in Society. The opening ceremony in the Palace of Nations in Geneva took place on the 10-11th February and featured 30 world-class speakers. Although COVID restrictions limited the audience to 135, it was streamed worldwide. The 10th February saw 3100 views from 66 countries and the 11th, 4211 views from 72 countries. The programme is here . You can search the UN web site for a video recording here using iyog2022 or International Year of Glass as key words. The recordings can be listened to by session - but downloads are not possible. The talks highlighted the latest thinking on how GLASS can aid the development of more just and sustainable societies, the most recent scientific and technical breakthroughs, its influence on art and in history and finally the role of museums.
This IYOG event needed significant financial support and a Global sponsorship campaign was particularly successful. Our SPONSORSHIP leaflet explained how to become involved, as a key PARTNER or simply as a FRIEND . Unspent funds from the Opening Ceremony and future donations have been used to support adminstration costs and smaller events in the year (see pages on GRANTS) . A list of the programme and our sponsors is printed in the Conference Brochure .
What follows is based on the formal application made to the UN and is split into the following sections:
- What glass offers society,
- Planning the IYOG
- Support us with your donations
- Support received from different institutions
- Support received by country
- Concluding statement
To download the main documents submitted to the UN click the 'News & documents' button at the top of the page. A highly inspirational video is being streamed on UTube and already has received 8500 views. The same video with subtitles in Japanese is available here .
Please expect radical changes and new information on this site as plans progress. Thousands of events are being organised at a local level and we are already overwhelmed by the variety and number of exciting projects being proposed.
Welcome to the Glass Age is a multiauthored book designed to whet the interest of an intelligent 18 year old; it was printed for the IYOG opening ceremony in Geneva. The 13 chapters were written by experts and explain how glassy artefacts are helping the UN achieve its 2030 humanitarian goals. To download a copy click here . The book is also available in Spanish ( click here ) and we hope other translations will follow.
To facilitate use of the book as a teaching aid, its thirteen chapters have also been separated into individual downloadable sections. These can accessed through this link .
1) What glass gives society
With its unparalleled versatility and technical capabilities, glass in its many guises has fostered innumerable cultural and scientific advancements:
- Glass is the main conduit for information in our knowledge-based society. Glass optical fibers have led to a global communications revolution; they are the backbone of the internet. Glassmakers have given us touch-sensitive covers for our mobile phones, revolutionizing the way we communicate.
- Glass is the chemically resistant container material for many of today’s life-saving medicines and is playing its part in the world’s quest to deliver a vaccine to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Strengthened glass containers have dramatically improved the reliability of the EpiPen treatment of life-threatening anaphylactic shock from severe allergic reactions.
- Bioglass compositions have advanced health care with their ability to: integrate with human bone; stimulate the human body’s natural defense to heal flesh wounds; aid tissue design and regeneration; and resolve hearing and dental issues.
- Glass sheets support solar cells and give clean energy; glass fibers reduce our carbon footprint by strengthening wind turbine blades, by insulating our homes and through carbon capture and sequestration (CCS); the vitrification of hazardous waste is making nuclear energy safer.
- The evolution of glass optics and optoelectronics mean that the James Webb space telescope can study the first moments after the big bang and expand understanding of the Universe.
- Glass melting is being de-carbonised and glassy products are being safely recycled.
- Archaeologists are learning more about ancient trade routes and the politics of raw materials.
- Glass artists across the globe have given humankind an awareness of this wonderful material including its remarkable methods of fabrication, inherent beauty, and ability to capture and display nature’s full spectrum of color.
Our vision of a United Nations International Year of Glass (IYoG2022) is to celebrate the past, present, and future of this transformative material following the United Nations’ goals in Agenda 2030. Specifically to:
- Demonstrate the role of glass in advancing civilization throughout recorded history.
- Organize international glass science and art festivals, with workshops to excite and inform the public of this rich history, and highlight links between glass, art and culture.
- Stimulate research on glass amongst organizations in education, industry, research and the public domain, including museums, to address the great challenges the world faces: achieving sustainable and equitable growth, and improving the quality of life everywhere.
- Build worldwide alliances focused on science and engineering for young people, while addressing gender balance and the needs of developing countries/emerging economies.
Extensive planning is now underway to ensure that the UN Year of Glass in 2022 is a success. We have contacted art and scientific glass-themed societies; glassmakers, fabricators and suppliers; academia, R&D centers and museums, both to share the concept and to ask for support, both in creating and supporting activities. we have created 18 Regional Organisations so that each area of the globe has a local organising committee and shortly we will start to fill these pages with more details of exciting ideas that are coming to fruition
Although we are facing the COVID19 pandemic across the planet, we continue working for IYOG2022, expanding our boundaries to ensure glass players everywhere can join us.
An international program of events already planned, including:
- An Opening Conference in Geneva – February 2022
- An International High-Tech Industrial Congress in Shanghai – April 2022
- An International ICG Congress – Berlin, July 2022 (celebrating the 100th Anniversary of DGG)
- International glass displays in Art Galleries and Museums throughout the year
- Closing Congress in Japan, December 2022
Many more activities are also proposed:
- A US Glass Day in Washington DC
- From Pharaohs to High Tech Glass Conference in Egypt, April-May 2022
- Special issues of the more relevant scientific journal related to glass, as International Journal of Applied Glass Science (IJAGS), Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids (JNCS), Journal of Sol-gel Science and Technology (JSGST), Heritage, etc.).
- Special issues of glass magazines as Glass International and Glass Worldwide, as well as scientific and industrial journals related to national glass societies.
Hundreds of activities in museums and exhibitions, academia & research, education and dissemination, companies and societies are planned across the planet focused on a universal distribution of activities at all education levels.
3) Financial Support and Donations

The origins of the project
When David Pye (ICG past president) learned in 2014 that the UN General Assembly would declare 2015 an International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies he arranged for the International Journal of Applied Glass Science to showcase “Glass and Light”. An article proclaiming that society had entered the Age of Glass followed in 2016. Concurrently, lectures by Manoj Choudhary, then ICG President, and David to international audiences explored the theme that glass science, engineering and art were entering new and profound chapters in their histories.
David next floated the concept of an International Year of Glass (IYOG) with Charlie Craig, Senior Vice President, Science and Technology, Corning Inc. He was strongly supportive and was joined soon after by Manoj Choudhary, who with David tabled a motion at an ICG Council meeting in Japan:
“The International Commission on Glass, representing organizations and individuals throughout the world dedicated to the promotion of science, technology, artistry, and application of glass enthusiastically endorses the exploration of a future declaration of a Year of Glass by the United Nations.”
Following its positive reception, David presented the concept to the American Ceramic Society Board (ACerS) and the Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG). Both embraced the idea and Steve Gibbs, a senior administrator at CMoG, played a pivotal role in advancing IYoG 2022 to the international art community. The die was cast.
Over millennia, our glass community has adapted to and supported Society’s needs. Just how transformational glass in its many guises has been is often missed. Its story deserves wider telling. Buoyed by a groundswell of enthusiasm ICG’s current President, Alicia Durán, took up the baton to become Chair of an International Steering Committee for the proposed IYOG.
A UN badged International Year requires a United Nations Resolution. Our application promotes glass, its past and future potential; it shows how the glass community is supporting UN developmental goals (2030 agenda): responsible production and sustainability; innovation and infrastructure; affordable and clean energy; climate action; unpolluted water and oceans; sanitation, health and well-being; education and gender equality. A presentation for the next UN General Assembly meeting is almost complete. The Spanish ambassador has agreed to sponsor the Resolution, offering China the opportunity to co-sponsor the initiative. The next President of the UN General Assembly, the Turkish diplomat Volkan Bozkir, knows of the proposal and strongly supports it, appreciating its widespread backing within the Glass Community.
As an important preliminary, UNESCO, the science arm of the UN, has been approached. This uncovered planning for a 2022 International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD) and an International Year of Mineralogy. While ‘competition’ was the first reaction, collaboration and mutual support were agreed as the way forward and UNESCO encouraged this. UNESCO also stressed protocol to ensure global benefits, through inclusivity and the UN 2030 developmental goals.
But then COVID-19 reared its head, slowing progress. The anticipated UN General Assembly in April was postponed. The world of glass remains on hold but manufacturers, suppliers, users, teachers, artists and museum curators are poised for action once approval is given.
From the start was a realisation that such celebrations could not be organised solely by one body; local communities had to be harnessed for local activities. An amazing 950 letters from 68 countries endorsing the concept and offering enthusiastic support have been received. The Corning Museum of Glass, the Glass Art Society, the International Committee of Museums, along with the Community of Glass Associations promoted by VITRUM and the Italian Government, have joined with many national Glass Societies to help. New partners are still welcome, particularly from under-represented areas such as Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans.

The use of glass in architecture dates to Roman times, containers have an even earlier history in Egypt and Mesopotamia (now Syria and Iraq) and glass beads were widespread throughout the Middle East, India and China, being traded internationally trade from the Bronze Age. The development of modern science has been based on glass artefacts from the large scale (astronomy) to the small scale (biology); from simple lamps to the lenses for lighthouses; in communications and electronics ranging from the first valves to optical fibres.
Now in a world constrained by a variety of environmental pressures, glass is one of the most recyclable materials; it has a variety of roles in reducing greenhouse gas emissions such as energy saving coatings, double/triple glazing and solar cells, it is made from widely available materials and is contributing to major improvements in our health.
Convinced that glass is worthy of celebration?
Well many organisations throughout the world have been and a case has been prepared for submission to the United Nations. Letters of support are being collected. We have more than 1100 endorsements from 74 countries and more are most welcome particularly from African, Middle Eastern ASEAN and Balkan countries. The closing date for submission has been pushed back from our original deadline because of the Corona Virus pandemic. We currently expect a UN vote in December and then a major exercise will follow to build on the international programme already in place and develop national programmes around local programmes which inform and educate communities everywhere on the rich history that glass has and its enormous potential in energy saving, health, a circular economy, culture and art.
We are currently developing our communications channels. News has begun to appear on our ' Press Release ' page and we will also start to generate Facebook, Twitter and other social media feeds. The aim is to inform 9 billion people of the value of glass as an artefact and to give them a fuller understanding of its rich history, its manufacture, its many applications, its importance in energy saving and its recyclability.
This ambitious programme will if successful require your help (administrative support, circulation of publicity, funding). It will also provide you with possibilities for expanding your profile and extending your international links. Industry, Academia, Colleges, Schools, Research Associations, Museums and Art Schools are all valuable partners.
