Day 11: BE #FEARLESS

QUOTE: “No matter what we do in life, we’ll never be able to avoid #negative opinions. It just isn’t possible.” CHALLENGE: “Work on something #publicly. Do a project where everyone can see.” Today’s word comes to you from out of town so of course it has a few stipulations. First: the actual word for this chapter is #Brave but again, I’ve already drawn that word this year so….
Second: it’s really not embarrassing for me to draw in front of people. It’s just a fancy word, so I thought I should maybe choose something a little more challenging…
Third: being out of town means that I don’t have my computer so that means that I don’t have the ability to share what I want to share with you until I make it home…. At this point all I can say is stay tuned…. #typography #draw #awordaday #365days #words #text #type #art #moleskine #sharpie #papermate #sketch #illustrate #coloring #color #doodle #lettering #handmadetype #handmade #letteringbyhand #drawing #illustration #sketchbook #personalart #createdformore

Day 10: BE #LIBERAL

QUOTE: “if we need wisdom, God gives it to us liberally. Wisdom is simply a form of creativity… So, creativity isn’t a scarce resource.” CHALLENGE: “Do an idea dump. List all your best ideas.” To be honest, it’s hard for me to list several #ideas because so many ideas that I have had have come true. Thanks to awesome people who are always willing to participate in my crazy ideas and make my dreams a reality. Hopefully you aren’t sick of me cuz there are always more to come! 🙂 #typography #draw #awordaday #365days #words #text #type #art #moleskine #sharpie #papermate #sketch #illustrate #coloring #color #doodle #lettering #handmadetype #handmade #letteringbyhand #drawing #illustration #sketchbook #personalart #createdformore

Day 9: BE #RESISTED

QUOTE: “if we are constantly seeking people’s approval, we will be consistently let down.” CHALLENGE: “Look for an overused or outdated technique…Turn that outdated technique and make it fresh and unique.” #typography #draw #awordaday #365days #words #text #type #art #moleskine #sharpie #papermate #sketch #illustrate #coloring #color #doodle #lettering #handmadetype #handmade #letteringbyhand #drawing #illustration #sketchbook #personalart #createdformore

Day 6: BE #INVESTED

QUOTE: “A good #community will help you when you reach those doldrums of despair. We all go through them. You aren’t alone in that. And it’s much better to go through those valley times with others who have been there than to trudge though them alone.” CHALLENGE: “Find a creative #friend(s)…get outside of yourself… and see from another person’s perspective.” **So today I’ve created something a little different. Or rather I should say that my awesome friends created something different. These are some of my favorite ladies and they were willing to help me out with today’s challenge. They are a big part of my life. They have invested themselves in me and I in them, and I am so grateful for their friendships. I asked them all to write the word INVESTED on ANYTHING, which they quickly, skillfully and gladly did for me, and I took their own penmanship and turned it into today’s word. Thank you ladies, I love you all!

Day 7: BE #REDEMPTIVE

QUOTE: “The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.” Proverbs 4:18

CHALLENGE: “Think back to a painful moment in your #career. Use your particular medium of creation and capture the beauty from that moment.” **There was a point in my “career” where I felt that what I had been planning to do (what I spent years of my life preparing to do) was no longer what I should be doing. No matter how many people encouraged me in certain #directions they never seemed to be the directions I should be going. I truly believe that I was sovereignly directed towards where I am today and I believe that I will only continue to be guided by the sovereignty of God in each and every aspect of life whether through the encouragement of those around me or divine intervention.

Day 6: BE #TENACIOUS

QUOTE: “It’s through the wrestling and the #perseverance that we create great work.” CHALLENGE: “Choose a problem that’s impossible to solve… As you wrestle, look for creative solutions… Create a #list.” – here’s my list. It was really cool to try and think of many different ways to combat a solution and write them all down. I’ve never done that before. And I think I might actually be able to do some of the things on my list. Impossible or not I hope I can take part in even the smallest amount of #change.
p.s. I hope you can read this. Had to take a Pano pic in order get the whole word in.

Today’s #onewordbyhandin365days:
Day 3: BE #INTENTIONAL

QUOTE: “That’s what it takes to live life intentionally. It requires attaching #purpose to every one of our activities.” CHALLENGE: “Find a medium that’s least like your usual medium… Following the rules and frame work of that discipline…. Create with #intentionality.” Well you can see I didn’t finish. But I had good “intentions”. I’ll be honest this challenge was a little difficult when I’m working with time constraints and specific frameworks of my own but I really love the reminder to always be intentional with my work. To remember that my purpose for everything should always be to glorify God. It’s that simple. And I needed to be reminded of that.
p.s. I do plan to finish this at some point. But that some point is not going to be tonight.

Today’s #onewordbyhandin365days:
Day 3: BE #DYNAMIC
QUOTE: “Great work is dynamic. It requires a push and pull. It needs to adapt to the music-to the world and the lives around us.” CHALLENGE:
Read Zeph 3:17. Create something that captures the essence of that passage.
This one needs a bit of an explanation. First, the actual title for today is Be A Dancer, but I’ve already drawn that word this year and I really think dynamic is a beautiful word to describe today’s challenge. A picture of following the push and pull of where God is leading us. Of bending with the curves and being guided by the lines.

Today’s #onewordbyhandin365days:
Day 2: BE #LIMITED
QUOTE: “Limitations force #creative solutions.” CHALLENGE: “Choose one project you’re working on. Then cut your resources… in half. … Now think creatively. Look for unique ways to accomplish the same goal.” **No pens, no pencils, no markers, no ruler, no eraser… One piece of paper and an exacto-knife. Lots of jagged edges but yet successful!

Today’s #onewordbyhandin365days:
Happy #April everyone! So lets get started!
Last week I picked up a new #devotional entitled Created For More by @jonathanmalm. It is a devotional for #creatives. For artist, musicians, designers, photographers and more. I am very excited to be delving into this book for a couple reasons. 1). I really need a new devotional and if you can take a devotional and gear it towards my crazy creative brain you’ve won me over. 2). Each day there is a new creative challenge and I am really looking forward to incorporating it into my already existing challenge. So, each chapter of this devo has been given a 2 word title “BE ___________.” So yes, we are going to cheat here a little and add a word to each day, but It’s the same word and it’s incredibly small so I think we can look past that little detail. ☺️ Each day I will take the word & challenge and create! I will share my favorite quote from the day, I will share the challenge with you (hopefully Jonathan doesn’t mind me quoting a ton of his awesome book

Day 3, too perfect!
