The Daily Illo: One Month In

In late 2015 I decided to adopt a new game plan for my creative life. It involved a strict morning routine, saying “yes” a lot, and making something everyday. Through the end of [...]

The Daily Illo

Inspired by my time doing CreativeLive‘s #28toMake project—and especially the first week, taught by Kate Bingaman Burt—I’ve decided to continue on with daily drawings of random [...]

#28toMake, Days 23–28

This last week was the home stretch with #28toMake. There were some great assignments, but I, sadly, didn’t do them. I’ve spent the past week mostly in bed or on the couch battling [...]

#28toMake, Day 22

I liked this day’s prompt quite a bit because it involved photography. We were asked by new CreativeLive prompter, Erik Marinovich, to take a picture of something shiny that we see [...]

#28toMake, Day 19

I’m catching up a bit here. I’ve been doing the #28toMake prompts, but haven’t had a chance to document them all like I had been earlier in the month. I was out of town for the [...]

#28toMake, Day 18

Today’s #28toMake was really interesting. The assignment was to take four sounds—a jackhammer, children playing, waves, and paper crumpling—and visualize them. It was pretty tricky and I [...]

#28toMake, Day 17

Before today I’d heard of tangrams, but never played with one. Turns out they’re a lot of fun. Coming up with some interesting tangram combinations was today’s #28toMake prompt [...]

#28toMake, Day 16

Another fun prompt today: Blackout Poems. This is where you black out the words in a newspaper, magazine, or any printed article, and leave only a few visible to read like a poem. It’s [...]

#28toMake, Days 13, 14, and 15

I spent a long weekend away in Connecticut. But I did manage to do the the #28toMake exercises, which were the same as last weekend—days 6 and 7. The first was the People Mad Lib, and the second [...]

#28toMake, Day 11

Today on #28toMake, we got to draw doodles on photographs. When I saw the examples Ryan Putnam showed in the video, I immediately thought of the work of KAWS, who does some pretty prominent photo [...]

#28toMake, Day 10

Gesture drawings are always fun. I remember doing them back in art school and really enjoying the ordered chaos of what I saw when I eventually looked down at my paper. And today on

#28toMake, Day 8

Today marked a new week of prompts from CreativeLive. Week One was “celebrating everyday objects through drawing,” and this week is all about line form and texture with Ryan Putnam. [...]

#28toMake, Day 7

Today’s prompt might be the easiest for many people, but I think I find it to be the hardest one so far. It was: do nothing. I find that to be pretty difficult because I always want to be [...]

#28toMake, Day 6

I was wondering what might happen during the weekends throughout February and the #28toMake campaign. After five days of really fun drawing prompts, it looks like Saturdays and Sundays might be a [...]

#28toMake, Day 5

Today is the last day of prompts from illustrator, Kate Bingaman-Burt, and it turned out to be a very helpful, very tricky doozy. We were asked to draw a receipt. This sounds simple—and maybe it [...]
