Formal – week forty-two.

Better late than never! One of the reasons I have been so busy this month is because I've been to four weddings, yep four! And I still have one to go. So I thought formal would be an appropriate word for this week. Now the challenge is on to get this Friday's illustration done before I fly to Western Australia for the next wedding :)


I came across this 365 blog the other day, but it was different to most 365 projects I have seen, instead of a photo a day this one is an illustration a day. Intrigued, I did a bit of googling and was very inspired by what I found. There are all sorts of 365 projects—from photos to fashion and cartooning to cooking. Here are some that I stumbled across A Year Of Good Things, 365 Grateful, 365 Days of Hand Lettering and  The One A Day Project. As I have been trying to improve my drawing skills, I have resolved to start a project of my own. I'm not sure I have the stamina or dedication required for drawing and posting everyday, so I am going to set myself  a more achievable goal and draw something every week. Starting today. There will be a different theme every month and as it will be a Friday post all themes will begin with the letter F. Starting with... Frocks! Now, of course I used the wrong pen for my very first post! This ink was not made to be painted over with watercolour but I kind of like the way it has bled. And as this is about learning and experimenting I've decided to leave it like this rather than do it again.

Do you have a 365 project on the go? I'd love to hear about it.

Stayed tuned next Friday for more frocks ❤
