For the last three months or so I took part in the 100 day project over on Instagram. It was something I had been considering for a while but as it was a big commitment I wanted it to be something that would really benefit me, and keep me enthused until the end, 100 days is a long time after all! In the end I decided to do '100 days in my sketchbook'. I do have sketchbooks, but to be honest a lot of them are more full of notes and general mess and not something that I consider to be a nicer looking sketchbook (you know what I mean). I thought this project may help me get down some ideas on any subjects that I wanted to pursue, (I did have several in mind), I also hoped I may get some work that I considered half decent out of it, and some potential future work ideas.
I'll be honest it did take me a few days to get into the swing of things, relax a bit and go with the flow. Some of the work I was not happy with, but I posted anyway, as that is all part of a challenge, right? Some I was pretty chuffed with, and some are ideas that I'm going to come back to and make work from. On a personal note it has also become a visual diary of a time in my life which was something else I hoped for. When I look at the images I remember where I was, what I was listening too/watching, thinking and feeling at that time. So for me it's a good personal record.
I'll share some of my favourites over a few posts starting with the earliest. I hope you enjoy! Did you take part (or are you taking part) in the project? How did you find it?
I've been spending the time since finishing scanning and cleaning up the work. I still have a few to finish. I've also got plans for some of it and I'll share that when they're finished.
Have a lovely week and I'll be back soon :).
