The best strategy thus far in these 100 day projects has been implementing the project that seems like the biggest frog for the day. The frog presents itself with a variety of different thoughts…

Will I feel like it?

Will I feel too tired?

Will I be able to achieve what I want?

I think you have to realise which task has the biggest emotional cloud over it and head straight for it like a bulldozer. That’s the tip of the day for these 100 day projects.
Last time I ventured into surface pattern design, my theme was modern stylised flowers with a semi-whimsical feel to them. Digging through my tray of drawings, I had the hand drawings from this. And searching through my digital files, I can see that I still have my moodboards and digitised hand drawings as well.

I think I’m going to select this same theme again but not whimsical, so just stylised modern flowers, and use the moodboards to derive and draw new ideas.


Until next time,

The world: ignites in me, a sense of curiosity. My mind does not settle until it can comprehend, until it understands. For the physical world, creation has always been my enduring method of choice. For the spiritual world, all-encompassing practices like yoga and meditation, a belief in a higher energy, and writing have always been the soothing and balancing tools I have returned to, to re-ground myself. This is my journey of self-expression. Through written words and different forms of art. To my soul, my inner essence.
