I joined The 100 Day Project again! I did handlettering last year and this year I am drawing wild flowers. I decided to use my Lamy fountain pen and Seawhite sketchbook for this project.
Originally I wanted to paint them all but I realised it’d take a lot of time away from my other work, so I hope to find time to turn some of my favourites into paintings eventually!
I post my 100 day project on my Instagram every day, please follow along if you like them!
I love seeing what other artists are up to with their 100 day projects and I really enjoy these above – what’s not to like about little animal paintings about friendships and smiley kawaii produce!
When I first heard about Elle Luna‘s The 100 Day Project, I wanted to join but I couldn’t come up what I was going to do. I wanted this new project to be something focussed and as I finally decided to do handlettering I joined in two days later. Better late than never, right?!
I originally wanted to do the usual process – handletter to perfection, scan and edit every time but I realised that with my year of creative habits project and work commitments I wouldn’t have time so I just look up for a lovely quote, write it in my sketchbook pages for couple of times and take photo (hence these slightly weird shadows and inconsistent grey backgrounds, which I kinda like anyway!).
Naturally, I am loving it! This project gives me a chance to really practise with handlettering as well as experiment with different pens and styles.
I am also pleased that through this project, I got commissioned by lovely Rebecca Desnos to handletter titles for her new e-book about natural dyeing, which I got really interested in from following her seriously beautiful Instagram account and want to give it a whirl. If you are curious too, do sign up to her newsletter to get a discount code when her e-book gets released very soon! Stay tuned for more detailed post about this exciting collaboration.
