Diary.

One of my creative projects this year is to draw a tiny (6cm x 6cm max) illustration in my tiny moleskine diary of an aspect of my day. Here are some recent ones.
































I am not sure how long I will keep this up. I remember trying it before, and it only lasted five days. At least I am on Day 14 now. Yay! I beat my own record.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone. Go beat a record!

Oh, best wishes in your efforts. If you make it the little moleskine book will be a superb treasure! I'm trying to get in an hour of drawing a day and it's been pretty much hit and miss so far. Life just keeps getting in the way doesn't it?

Never do I set a goal for myself- I will rebel, breathing takes all I can muster...Your tiny drawings and painting is very cool- at least it is not monumental- gin and ginger ale sounds so wrong...Go shopping!Or - perhaps it is an acquired taste- Gin & ginge- might catch on!
veri-word is "Poolati"- that, too, might be an acquired taste.

I like your little illustrations-and well done on the 14 days. Have you seen a blog called Cathy Cullis on my blog list? She is making a tiny head a day from clay. I admire these sorts of things but don't think I have the staying power!

I love your little drawings! If I didn't have tonic for my gin, I would put orange in it.

Oh, right now I prefer the idea of a page a day of illusrated diary to the virtual blogging process... no cold screen, just the blank soft page. Lovely and inspirational A! x Lana

Wat 'n wonderlike idee. En jou illustrasies is beautiful. Ek dink 'n mens vang op daai manier klein elemente van dae op wat jy andersins net sou vergeet vir altyd.

(my word verifation vandag: effing. haha)

These are lovely Anairam. I'm doing the same thing and am on Day 19. I already know deep down that I'll be lucky to get to the end of January! Good Luck.
