I have been wanting to do this since almost exactly last year after seeing an Instagram post. It’s been awhile since I saw the post so the exact details are blurry, but the premise was that either every week or every day this person created an illustration, and in the end, they were all compiled into this cool illustration book, and I was amazed! So I decided to give it a try for myself! So from this day until next year, I will attempt to do 52 illustrations, ideally one illustration per week, but life happens and I want need to give myself some wiggle room to work with in the case that happens.
So basically how this is going to go down is that I have this spare mug filled with little pieces of paper that all have one word or a small phrase written on it, and every week (or after every illustration) I’m going to pull one prompt and let my imagination run wild from there.
The whole process is going to be completely random, and through this, I’m hoping to create illustrations out of my comfort zone, and explore concepts that I would have never thought of. I want to explore and experiment with these prompts and see where they take me. What’s going to happen once I finish all 52 illustrations? I have no clue at this point, but I still have ways to go until then!
Also, here is the first prompt that was drawn!
So here’s to an interesting year!
