About the project
Sketching every day for 100 days straight game me a lot of creative energy and taught me all about different techniques, papers and pens
This is a very special project to me.
It is about the iterative daily practice of learning to represent my ideas on a piece of paper with my own hands, and connecting with myself in the process. No computer, coding or any other digital tool.
It is a project about doing a creative workout that fuels every other area of my life. Most importantly, it is a project about defeating perfectionism. During the winter of 2019, I allocated ~40 minutes daily for 100 days straight to learn about drawing, sketching and many design techniques. I published the sketches on the Instagram account @100daysofdavid, regardless of how polished or 'perfect' the drawing were.
This project not only taught me about the exquisite process of designing and sketching with your own hands, it taught me about putting our work out in the world without focusing on everything that is wrong about it, but rather what isn't.
