100 Day Project
On March 29, 2016, sort of on a whim, I created an account on Instagram called @just_make_things and started an 100 day project. I drew and designed words every day for 100 days and shared them publicly. I also wrote about what it felt like to share my work every day, and the ways that I worked through my fear. This project taught me productive risk-taking and helped me establish a studio practice ("make something every day") that I still rely on today. It also helped me start seeing myself as an artist, or at the very least, a person-who-makes-things. That was a significant change in my thinking and that new internal belief helped me continue making decisions that have pushed my work forward in the last two and a half years.
