a book about being present
For over 90 days, I illustrated and wrote a short stories. I ultimately made them into a book which was picked up and sold through Anthropologie.
The stories are based on my own personal experiences. Some characters are based on dear friends and family members.
My book (and this page) showcases the illustrations in chronological order!
I illustrated and wrote every day, consecutively. I shared them onto my Instagram every day for 90+ days!
I started the project to get back into drawing on a daily basis. I wanted to illustrate rooms with all the fun details but realized people connect with stories (and other people). Not just material goods and objects.
While I wanted to try a different style of illustrating each day, I definitely fell into my own style. I can still see phases and the evolution now that I can see the work as a whole.
It's obvious when the season shifted out of spooky season!
As you can see at this point, I went from exploring darkness to being fixated on how light changes everything. I then move on to friendship...
I loved the idea of exploring friendship in the outdoors.
