Today marks the 100th day of my 365-day challenge “Wink”. I am really stoked to have made it this far, as it takes some serious dedication to complete a project that involves creating something, every single day. So far, I have learned a lot about myself and my process, and feel that I have come a long way with this challenge of pulling a daily tarot card and a drawing a daily sketch. My confidence in creating art is growing and my desire for experimentation is at its peak. Today, to celebrate this milestone, I am sharing the next four pages of my sketch book “Wink”. I have 265 days to go, so stick around to see more! And I thank you all for the encouragement, your comments and the loving support I have received so far in this challenge. xoxo Laura
Here is some progress on my “Wink” project, which consists of reading a Tarot card every morning, doing research to learn about that card and then drawing a sketch based on that inspiration (and the whole series is also based on my well-used cup cozy). At the end of the year, I’ll be putting all the pieces together to create a solo art installation for 2019. As it implies, the project is growing daily as I am continually learning and having fun with the discipline it takes to commit to doing something every day.
Over the past 3 months, I have been inspired to bring the whole concept one step further and create a Contemporary Art Tarot Deck with accompanying guidebook, which will go on sale in 2019. I have a lot of work ahead of me to accomplish this but I am enjoying every step of this creative venture. Look out for my Daily Tarot page on my website starting end of April, where you will be able to shuffle a 3-card spread, or a card of the day, as well as book a Tarot reading via email. For now, I will share another four pages of my sketch book. Stay tuned and watch it grow! Xoxo Laura
I have taken some time out of the studio lately to tend to the garden, release a soundtrack and put on a few art shows. But the time has come to get back to work, as the creative juices are flowing and something new is happening!!! I am really excited about starting to build a new project!!! Stay tuned to watch it grow.
