Hello all, I am taking a post off from unicorns to tell about a fun project I’ve found through Elle Luna and The Great Discontent. It’s called the #100dayproject and you can participate (on Instagram). I found it today, and even though the official start was yesterday, anyone can jump in at any time. You can pick anything to do for 100 days. Since I’ve started creating Little Adventures during my lunch break, I thought I’d use that as my project. I hope you will join me.
This is one pulled from the sketchbook and gussied up in Photoshop. I am quite fond of my little weird characters. There is a 1970’s-style, limited palette going on here…nostalgia. (I’m actually a child who grew up in the ’80s.) I was trying to get the old, manila paper feel they gave us to draw on in elementary school, so I downloaded some kraft paper for texture. All in all, I like the rough quality here. Reminiscent of School House Rock, learning to write in cursive, and crayons on that good old manila paper.
