My reasons for doing the 100 day project together with the first 25 illustrations can be found here in case you missed it.
If I’m totally honest with you, some days have been tougher than others. Sticking to a theme, even one as close to my heart as drawing illustrations of my gorgeous girl every day, has been quite challenging.
Somedays I haven’t felt like drawing, or my mind just couldn’t catch an idea. Somedays I was just really, really tired. However, I stuck with it and the results are beginning to speak for themselves.
Showing up every day
Showing up every day and simply drawing something is how I got through those tough days. Flexing my creative muscles helped me to free up my mind and to create what have become some of my favourite pieces.
I also now have a lot of inspiration for future designs and I’m only half way through the challenge!
Finding inspiration for the challenge
Pushing through the difficult days has enabled me to explore styles of illustration that I wouldn’t normally try. It’s incredible how flashes of inspiration can strike and then seem to take on a life of their own.
For example, the simple silhouette of Juno has led to some beautiful images that I will work on further after the challenge. From zen doodle inspired images and folk art pieces to my favourite repeating patterns, the possibilities are endless and that is exactly what I was hoping for with this 100 day project.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my illustrations. Feel free to pop a comment below or join me over on Instragram.
Until next time…
