The Project //
The Word.A.Day.Illustration Project began on January 1, 2012. I successfully illustrated the word-of-the-day for every day of the year, creating an illustration based on the word itself and it's definition. With only a day to complete a full illustration, I was forced to draw the first thought that was conjured in the moment. It began as an exercise to 'free' my imagination, but ultimately it made me a better artist all around.
