After 3 years of trying to complete this art challenge, I did it!

My sketchbook is full of 100 new illustrations, and the project really helped me to do something I enjoyed every day during lockdown…here are some of my favourites…

The first year I tried using the 100 day project to create a book project, and although I did get lots of usable illustration and lettering from my sketchbook, it was too much pressure, without enough planning beforehand and I only got to day 58 (and no where near to doing what I set out to do).

The following year I chose the broad theme of ‘spring’ as my starting point and this worked out better for me and I managed 67 days.

I didn’t have a plan of attack this year and just created whatever I fancied, (and this did make it very difficult some days), but I did create something every day for 100 days!! Next year I think I will set myself 10 themes, and then I can create 10 illustrations for each theme… we’ll see!
