Yes, I decided to join in. Again!
The 100 day project got me started making art in early 2016. I made a commitment to draw every day for 100 days and now here I am, some 990 days or so later, taking up the challenge again.
Those first 100 days in 2016 were mostly disappointing. I was so rusty and had zero confidence. As a child I’d been good at drawing, but when I started to draw again as an adult I found that most of my skills had long gone.
At first I used materials that I found around my home—some barely used pastels, a mostly empty sketchbook from college, my children’s colored pencils. From those pitiful supplies I started to build my skills. Find my style. Explore subjects and markets. And commit to carving out the time to make art every day. After 100 days of drawing I did improve! I was hooked and I’ve kept going ever since.
Today as I begin the challenge I find myself with better materials and way more confidence. In fact, for my 100 day project this time I will be attempting to learn again! This time I’ll be learning to make digital art. This is as new to me as using those colored pencils were three years ago.
Please follow along on my Instagram account @ceecliff_art as I work on “100 days of containers.” I’ll be making them in chunks of 10 at a time, each based around a theme. I hope I can keep going for the full 100 days! Wish me luck.
