I just thought, how lovely it would be to show my full 24 days of the holiday advent I did with my licensing agent; A Fresh Bunch!? I can’t tell you how often I plan on doing these types of challenges and never make it all the way through (don’t even ask me how I managed to do this during the busiest time of the year). But, I did it and I’m quite proud. I really need to challenge myself more often.
A few things I am slowly learning about while doing daily challenges:
Stick with a color palette. This not only helps me to work faster, but it also makes the collection look really nice together.
Sketch out multiple ideas for the day. Then you can re-use ideas for the next day. I would spend 20 minutes each morning trying to come up with new ideas and now I have a few pages in my sketchbook to use for future projects.
Don’t think too hard. This can be my biggest challenge with most of my work. I find that when I think too hard about something, I can really hinder my creative process. If I just go for it and sketch out anything and everything - I come up with my best ideas.
Create your challenge at the same time each day. Find the best time that works for you and stick to it each day. I gave myself an hour each morning to create each of my daily drawings.
Follow and comment on others who are doing daily challenges. If I follow other people who are doing daily challenges, I feel more motivated to keep going with my challenge.
What daily challenges are you working on? I’d love to follow!
Very excited to announce my newest collaboration with Crate & Kids! I can’t tell you how exciting it feels to have my work included in their catalog. You can now own two framed prints of mine; Circus Geometrics and Red Rainbow. Click on the images below to see them on their website.
Not quite sure what I am getting myself into, but I decided to take on the #the100dayproject this year. I have been wanting to write my own picture books for awhile, so I decided to spend the next 100 days writing 100 tiny stories. Wish me luck - this is a whole lot tougher than I thought it would be! Follow along on my instagram.
Very thrilled to announce my newest collection and collaboration with the wonderful Sarah + Abraham is now available! I have always been a huge fan of Sarah + Abraham and could not be more excited to collaborate with them again.
They have added a handful of my very favorite designs to plates, cups, bowls, placemats and the most adorable tote bags ever. I love how everything turned out! Please hope over to their shop to check them all out!
