Goodday sweeties… I almost said ‘goodmorning’ but it’s 11.49 AM while I type this so I presume it will be afternoon by the time I hit the ‘Publish’ button… I woke up early this morning but I fell asleep again – I guess I needed to sleep in for once but it means I keep on runnin’ behind for the rest of the day. That’s why I will keep this post short to leave me some time to get at least some of the ‘tasks’ that I planned done.
First: here’s my desk this morning.
That’s the last spread in my ‘Chronicles’ Art journal you see on the desk. I always have blank pages left at the end of each year, after filling the journal with 52 weekly spreads (due to the binding and the number of signatures – do the math 😉 ) and when I came across the idea of ‘A Year in Pixels’ I thought it would be neat to draw a grid on that page and fill it in day by day.
It will be a one-year-thing, I will finish this project of course but I can tell already that I won’t repeat it next year. I bump onto problems when I have to choose the color of the day – my day’s don’t have ‘one emotion’ – what to do with a beautiful but exhausting day? Do I color that yellow or green? However, if you would like to check this ‘project’ out just google ‘Year in Pixels’. There’s lot of examples out there!
Just like I thought – it’s now 12.07 – Wednesday afternoon.
I have two more art journal spreads to show and I’ll post the images without explanation. Just the title. The interpretation is all up to you.
