2019

2019 was a strange year in general, I feel like I didn’t create very much. In January I tried to make a page a day, first with a moleskine journal and then by moving to a postcard diary style – neither lasted long! The rest of the year I made journal pages and art when I felt like it. I created art for Well Inked Box, drew an unusual amount of wrestlers, practiced portraits with inspiration from the Sktchy app, failed to complete the Artist’s Way but kept up with morning pages for a while, failed the Index Card a Day challenge, and documented everyday life such as concerts, current affairs, travel, dreams, and feelings. I also created one portrait as a commissioned piece and three birthday cards for friends/co-workers. Scroll through to view select journal pages and art from 2019, from newest to oldest:

2017

I made a LOT of art in 2017. I made art every day as part of Crystal Moody‘s Year of Creative Habits; was a member of Get Messy and took part in 4 seasons (Art 101, Contrast, Color, and Fairytales); I was a Creative Team member for the Awesome Ladies Project, creating journals for the themes for each month, blog posts using the ALP Story Journal and other ALP products to write “letters” to my 18 year old self, and attempted 100 Days of All About Me; I collaborated with Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd and Beatriz Helton; I created and appeared in a number of zines; I had a piece of art appear in an art show; and I was commissioned for pet portraits.
