Day 10: Grocery Run
I'm a creature of habit and basically get the same items, under $50 unless sidetracked by some sales.
Day 9: Self Care Necessities
This didn't turn out as planned. I had to make some color adjustments and even then it's not "quite" what I envisioned but it kind of is. Haha. I wanted to try flat illustrations, like a color pop/post-it note style on a door. Nevertheless, I think the idea comes across.
Day 8: I Keep Wearing
I live in leggings but I these are also essential to my wardrobe. Accent earrings, name rings, bright lipstick and a purse that fits everything. What more can a girl ask for.
Day 7: Current Cravings
Decided to try a different color palette for this. I like the violet but it was tricky gauging the opacity. Maybe I'll try a monochrome design.
Day 6: Daily Routine
My schedule can be all over the place but one consistent thing is a cup of tea. Right now, I absolutely love this Vanilla Chai loose leaf tea from a local vendor. I almost signed up for a subscription supply.
Day 5: Ingredients to my Mess
I think I'm getting the hang of this. No pages were scrapped during the design of today's prompt. I just cleaned my workspace so I delved into my bag. There's always a purse of "you never know" items. Oops, typo in Happy Girls "ARE" The Prettiest, haha.
Day 4: Latest Reading Material
I think I'm finding my flow with this. Went back to acrylics and just a simple pen. Honestly, my books are never stacked properly. It'a a bit all over the place and to represent that, I built a "fort?" of books because...why not.
Day 3: Creating With
To be honest, I'm not sure where this project will lead me. There are styles I've explored in the last two days that I love yet there are so many different ways to express an idea. Perhaps I'll switch to just pen and "watered-down" acrylic for the next prompt.
Day 2: Recently I Learned I'm a Turbulent Campaigner (ENFP-T)
ENFP, INTJ or ESTP? I was so confused when my friend asked me this question. Did I miss a generation? A vine? A gif? After a quick google search I discovered these spy-like codes referred to 16 various personalities assigned to you after a small test. I took the plunge and was pronounced ENFP...with a T. Aside from having my personality down to a science, I was fascinated by how accurate this actually was, so I made it my project.
One of my focus throughout this workshop is to discover a style that represents me. Since this test felt like a portrait of my personality, I decided to explore a portrait composition, omitting the facial expression to focus on the test result. AND the struggle of finding the right skin tone for a chocolate skinned girl.
Day 1: Currently Listening to Mai Tais (Train featuring Skylar Grey)
I was so flustered about how to start this project without overthinking it. I could dive in but that quickly resulted in two drafts being scrapped. Thinking of bridging the gap between over-processing and being free-spirited, I limited myself to 2 "rough" sketches, 2 color palettes (plus black) and simply just writing. I loved the flow of time in the lyrics, the joy of living your life to the full and having no regrets. That's all for now. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
