100DayProject, Puttering, Personal Projects

This week in The Office

I came to realize after the first week of lettering quotes that if this is going to be sustainable. I'm going to need some themes. I roughed out the next 5 weeks or so, and it feels good to have something to bounce ideas off of instead of the million-and-one things that are never good enough to write, or depending on things I'm watching in the evening to provide me with a good quote or word.

Last night we watched The Babadook, which was beautiful, the art direction and color palettes were amazing.

100 day challenge

Hello to all three or four of you that are reading this! 

So I've made it through 3 days so far, I might as well announce that I'm doing the 100days project.   

What Is the 100-Day Project? It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process.

The action I decided upon is to create some loopy, goofy, playful (and probably pretty bad) handlettering. You'll find it on instagram under the hashtag #badhandlettering My goal is to just make a bunch of it and hopefully get to #okhandlettering and then to #prettygoodhandlettering. My inspiration will come from things I overhear, funny conversations and the occasional internet troll. 

I promise absolutely nothing profound, no RUMI quotes or Ben Franklin platitudes unless they're 100% made up.

It's probably going to be mostly badly photocopied fart jokes TBH.
