And a pivot.
Jen Gubicza’s drawing dinosaurs everyday, for 100 days. I didn’t even know there are 100 Dinosaurs. There are, she knows their names. You should follow her.
Jennifer Jamieson’s 100day project is also going well, she’s drawing 50 picture books bad villains. She’s also recently launched a book being at home during a pendamic.
Chantelle Holt is also going strong with her Talent Show. It’s a bit of a game too because you get to pick the winner of this kids talent show. And there are prizes!
Rose Lihou’s project features miniature dogs in a real life setting. There is a freshness and unexpectedness about each piece.
Damjmiana’s project features a french alphabet in her deep melancholy style.
My own project is taking awhile to get off the ground:
My aim is to complete an alphabet featuring icons from my childhood but in the context of a business magazine or newspaper. I’m committed to finish the 26 letters. But I’m not sure about the 100 days timeline and Cadence.
I’ve recently made a couple of changes to my schedule that allows me to spend more time with my wife and daughter. But because the schedules and routines are new, I haven’t yet been able to figure out how to manage my time and energy to include the project.
I see 2 options moving forward.
I simplify the project to be 26 Sketches.
I drop the 100 days part of the project, and take my time to complete the 26 letter as time becomes available.
I’m not going to ask you to help me decide, but feel free to guess which route I’ll go!
I think you’ll choose #2. You can work at your own pace without the timeline pressure.
Wife and daughter come first - there'll always be another challenge next time round. And daughters grow fast. What about including your time with her in the challenge? Draw her focussed on the activity you're doing and post. No tinkering? Easier said than done, I know! Best of both worlds?
