100 Days of Pillows (91-100)

Mar 21, 2018

In:Design, Drawing

I can’t believe I’m saying this but the 100 Days of Pillows project is COMPLETE!!! Tomorrow will be 6 months to the day since I drew the very first one. The project would have been finished earlier had I not taken a break for Christmas and weekends, but it was the sustainable pace I needed. With that said, I’m tired lol! But it’s a good tired. 🙂

Soon I’ll write that post I promised about lessons learned through finishing this project. But for now, here’s a quick recap of each of the last designs.

Ferns that picked up on the tropical theme in Days 89-90.

Same with these hibiscus flowers. I liked the fresh green I paired with them. And this definitely confirmed that gold is the new black. 🙂

Hummingbirds…because it’s that time of year again.

More birds, but this time flamingos. Since I hadn’t drawn one before, it was interesting to study their features and remind myself why they stand on one leg (hint: it’s easier for them that way!).

We spent a long weekend in Nashville, our first time visiting the city. I came home incredibly inspired to make art. Nashville is electrified with creative energy in both musical and visual arts.

Latte hearts, inspired by a delicious “Always Fall Somewhere” latte in said city.

This design was dedicated to little twin princesses in my life undergoing hand surgery and my aunt, recovering from burns on her hands she received on the job as a firefighter. Having hands to use is such a gift, if you think about it.

Day 97 - Hands & Hearts - blog

Another Nashville inspired design. I discovered Hatch Show Print there, a letterpress shop famous for designing show prints for all the greats who have performed in Nashville (and beyond). They use carved wooden (and also metal) blocks to impress their designs on paper.

Day 98 - Block Letters Home - blog

Pansies for the first day of spring.

Day 99 - Pansies - blog

And FINALLY, Day 100! I was feeling so grateful to God for helping me complete this project that I wanted to make the last one in honor of Him. Yes, for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son. For me. For you. ❤
