001 #the100dayproject

Hellllllo, today is day 001 of my 4th (??) #the100dayproject! I’ve been creating some quick drawings in an old Moleskine Cahier Notebook over the last couple of months and was really enjoying being inside of a journal again. I’ve been spending so much time in Procreate – with last year’s project and my weekly art/animation pieces for our band @rushmorebeekeepers – real art supplies are a treat! I’m working in a Strathmore Mixed Media Art Journal and it’s lovely so far. I’ll be scribbling as usual and maybe rediscovering collage – we’ll see what happens over the next 99 days. 🖤 – posted on IG

I don’t think I’ll be posting here everyday – maybe weekly round-ups and thoughts. I woke up extra early this morning, grabbed my coffee, put on a new to me podcast about meditation (more on this soon), and started right away. I know myself enough to know that this isn’t going to happen everyday but it’s definitely ideal to have it done early in the day.

xo, Amanda


This will be my fourth year participating in the 100 day project. I finished the project in 2015, 2018 and 2020. Trying to remember why I didn’t do it the other years – it’s a mystery. In 2015 I did little drawings on notecards, 2018 was small square drawings that follow the grid and connect together, and 2020 was Procreate and Apple Pencil illustrations. 🙌

2021 Plan!

I found an old Moleskine Cahier Notebook that my daughter had done some little scribbles in and the last couple months I’ve been drawing inside of it. It’s been years since I worked inside a journal instead of loose paper or canvas and I’m enjoying it. It’s much less pressure than loose paper and especially canvas. Less pressure whenever possible, please. ♥︎

SO, for the project I’m going to keep going with a notebook and see what happens! I knew I wanted a heftier paper and after much research bought a Strathmore Softcover Mixed Media Art Journal (amazon). Excited to get started!!
