100 Days of Making...say waaaaah

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 29, 2016, 9:14 PM
So I've done 30 day challenges before, but this is probably the most ambitious daily project I've embarked on in a LOOOOONG while :XD: What am I on about? The 100 Day Project 'o course! It's almost 2 weeks in but there's plenty of time for you to participate if you wanna (deets are here: thegreatdiscontent.com/100days ) So what is this project you ask? Basically you decide what you wanna make and do it every single day until July 11, 2016 ^ ^ The organizer Elle Luna ( www.instagram.com/elleluna/ ) has also suggested that participants share their creations on instagram with the hashtag #100dayproject 

I like projects like these because it forces me to be creative for at least an hour every single day ^ ^ My own project is based on random musings, that is, whatever I first think of when I sit down with my tablet. Thus far it has been mostly fan art, and fan art I had been too intimidated to draw until now so I'd say that's a huge plus. Also I'm getting a little faster in my digital painting process which is also a plus to this project! There are plenty of days left if you guys are interested in hopping on the train too! (you don't have to post on instagram if you don't want btw XD) 

Yea or nay? Anybody in? Below are my entries for everyday (including this one) for a total of 11 days.

Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 27. I have an MFA in painting from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (2015). I have a BFA in painting and drawing (art history minor) from the University of Akron (2012). I'm working on getting certified to teach k-12 art in the state of Michigan! I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)
