I first heard about this challenge –known as #The100DayProject– from Elle Luna at The Great Discontent, but it began as a workshop assignment from Graphic Design professor Michael Bierut at the Yale School Art. Students had to chose a design exercise and repeat it every day for 100 days. It did not matter what they chose, as long as they did it daily and documented it.
To make sure I get through my 100 days, I've written down my intentions:
To wake up and exercise my mind
To expand my visual vocabulary
To make drawing part of my life
To stop judging my work
To stick to one thing for a long time
To see more clearly and find my voice
To move forward and see where this takes me
To do things even when I don’t feel like doing them
To do something that scares me
To share how I see the world with others
If you want to see what you can create with discipline and focus, I invite you to take the challenge. I will share my drawings on my blog every day. This is my first.
