Happy April and my latest 100 day challenge

I hope you all had a great start to the new year. quite a few things have taken place since my last post which I will post about in other posts.

I am taking part in another #the100dayproject as a 100 day project is a great way to choose a project and focus on that for 100 days and it’s more fun doing so with others.For my project, I am also joining @victoriajohnsondesign and focusing on illustrating #birdsbutterfliesandblooms with my own angle, #playingwithtechniques. There are some approaches to mark making that I would like to experiment with and this project is ideal for that type of experimentation.

It’s not too late to join in with your own project and hashtag.

My September challenge

If you have been following my social media, you will have noticed that I have been creating some miniature black and white drawings based on the theme of vintage toys. The #drawingadaychallenge has been inspired by the work of John Vernon Lord and promoted by the House of Illustration (http://www.houseofillustration.org.uk). One of their current exhibitions , John Vernon Lord: Illustrating Carroll and Joyce, is open until 4 Nov 2018.

A drawing must be made every day during September and they must measure a one inch square are the limitations of the challenge. As I have been late to the challenge and doing two drawings each day and sticking with black and white as during 2016, John Vernon Lord did a drawing for every day of the year and used pen and ink on paper. I have been a fan of small square illustrations as they also remind me of spot illustrations that were often engraved during the early days of printing. It is also a good lead up for Inktober, another drawing challenge for the month of October. My work has been included in the House of Illustration blog along with other work created for the challenge. My work is included here:. https://houseofillustration.org.uk/news/latest-news/the-house-of-illustration-drawing-a-day-challenge-a-e

The grid of vintage toy illustrations is now available on clothing, notebooks and bag in my Redbubble store; https://www.redbubble.com/people/danielaglassop/shop?asc=u
