The 125 Images Project was born back in May of this year, and consisted of drawing an image in pen and ink, and posting it everyday on The Bloom Studio blog for 125 days. The series concluded on the Autumn Equinox, and here are all 125 images from all 125 days. I learned a great many things with this project, and I will post something about the process after it has all sunk in a bit more. Please click on any image to start the photo viewer. It’s very snazzy.
The bow and arrow drawing has been by far the most searched for image I have created – almost every day someone goes hunting for it on the web…so ironic, and crazy. Probably due to The Hunger Games. I actually drew it for my sons who took archery this summer, but I’ve read The Hunger Games and I’m cool with that too.
The next project begins on Novemeber 15, 2012, and will center around portraits, pencils and symbols. The project will carry on for 125 days, a portrait a day, and end on the Spring Equinox, March 20, 2012. A lovely trip to Paris with my favorite cousin (hi Jenn!) happens during this project in November, so that should be interesting, as I plan on drawing people everyday…so you have french people portraits to look forward to. If you would like me to draw you, a friend, or family member, please send me a photo or a link to the photo via email (address found above) and I will add you to the list:) Keep in mind, I am using the word “portrait” loosely – the work will still be imagistic, and quick – I will still churn them out daily. I’m looking for glimpses of spirit to start connecting what I know about symbolism, and image to what is there inside others….I’m looking so forward to it!
In the interim, I will be creating lots of watercolors, knitting a gazillion scarves and hats, designing t-shirts, bike riding, moon bathing, dancing/choreographing in Denver, studying tarot, and writing things for books, writing and casting spells, and just writing…oh, and resting, lots of resting. And eating, lots of eating. Oh, and just being, lots of just being.
