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

#the100dayproject2021

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!!
