So what's with 365 Days of art?
It's all about inspiration and a love of creating. I create five pieces of art a week, filling my sketchbook to the brim with inspiration, crafts, doodles and drawings. Challenged yourself with me, or just get some great art ideas for a one-off project.
I'm taking my tasks from the fabulous artist and art author Lorna Scobie.
Task; What is your favourite thing to eat.
There was only ever going to be one answer to this...Cheese board bitches. (That is also the name of any future punk girl band I form, I would pretend it was an ironic take on the stale bourgeoisie dinner part, but it wouldn't.)
Notes on the art, I discovered I really like the style of the leaves, that loose, fast scratching style, used with nearly empty ink pens.
Task; What made you smile today?
I have a Lego mini-figure Lego army, that if you ask nicely, or even if you wander too close to the house I'll force you to look at. They're my babies. Anyhoo Lego has always been a part of my strange, happy place, but today was fun. Went out for a huge burrito with the 'Eats Way More Than You'd Bet Good Money On' spawn of my loins, watched the new Wes Anderson film, Isle of Dogs, and then hit the Lego shop hard. Finished off with doodling, my third favourite 'ing.'
So the task was to mess around with dots, which if it were any other week I'd have got my sharpies at the ready and gone for it, but it's the Easter holidays. So that means putting my mum hat on and getting crafty. The dining table was covered with pipe cleaners, prick sticks and pompoms and I thought, what is a pompom if not a 3D dot? So I got my glue gun at the ready and knocked out a heart shaped badge for my cheeky monkey who has a bit of a thing for them. Badges not hearts.
Task; Mess around with strips
This was gorgeous fun. I got to crack open my little sticks of oily goodness, which I've been dying to do since that nice man from post office brought me them. The way they blend into each other, it's screaming out for a funky sunset project.
Task: Ink freestyle
A lovely simple task of filling in the squares, I've taken a fancy to the heart...
That's it folks
... Join me next week when I venture outside and paint trees I also get funky with flowers.
But if you can't wait for that, here is where it all began with Week 1.
