Here's my final set of my illustrated day! I had a few rules I tried to follow, first being a 3pt stroke and second, I wanted to try to use the same symbol for myself and see how many different activities I could adapt it to represent. (This challenge was the most fun for me personally.)

I included some extra elements like a clock (to show time or no clock when I'm resting, enjoying myself or trying not to think about time). As well as some extra use of color.

I work from home, so I'm fortunate to be able to take breaks to play with my daughter and eat lunch with my family. The work icons are a bit repetitive, but that's fairly representative of my daily routine :)

Final Daily Icons

While I decided to include use of color for my project - most of them work in one-color as well.

bw icons

My favorite icon by far was paddle boarding with my dog - I decided to make an icon collection of  "outdoor dog activities" as well if you would like to check it out. I've enjoyed seeing others daily routine & icon making process and overall the class was a fun exercise!
