The 100 Day Project

What is The 100 Day Project? Click the link to find out the details, but here's the short answer from the website:

It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process. 

For me it about all that, but especially the showing up day after day for the SAME process. This is a great contrast to my typical working style in which I go from one project to another, each one entirely different from the next.

My process for each of the 100 days will be to cut shapes out of one sheet of black origami paper, paste shapes onto a sheet of graph paper, and finally, to add detail with a black and / or white pen. Supplies shown in photo above. In photo are some sheets of colored tissue paper which I included in case I should feel the need to add a spot of color. 

I'm currently on day 8 and have been enjoying my new morning ritual (wake, prepare iced coffee, retreat to studio for 30 minutes). One thing I feel This project is lacking is a theme to tie it all together, and also to make it easier for me to decide the subject each day. Perhaps I will within the next couple days...
