Seen all the projects that people are creating to celebrate Summerhill School’s 100th Birthday has inspired me to do things that I have never done, or things that I used to love doing but have stopped for some reason. Things that I once wanted to learn, but never committed to; things that I never thought doing because they are not part of my subjective reality; things I don’t relate, things!
The idea came to my head while watching Henry’s tree climbing! I used to climb trees often at Wimbledon Common but for some reason I stopped doing it… ‘No, no, no!’
Doing ‘100 different things’ will be a great fun for me! I am so excited!
My head does not follow order of things, so although some things might have a lower number in a sketch list, they might be done in different order. Life is (at least) three-dimensional, so back and forth it is!
100 different things inspired by 100 different people!
Let’s (I mean I ) do this!
Thing #1: Climb a Tree – Inspired by Henry Readhead
It was so much fun to climb a tree once again! Thanks to Henry I have been rescued and will try to keep it to a daily basis funexcercise!
If you press the link underneath, you can watch the little video of the climbing! And I have added some pics too! Let me know! 🙂
Thing #2: Drawing my Logo in Illustrator- Inspired by Helene C. Hersdal
It has been so much fun to transform my hand drawing into an Illustrator drawing. I was inspired by my wife, Helene, who has been learning Illustrator by herself for a little while. She helped me a lot having lots of patience with my impatiences! 🙂
Following are the pictures of the hand drawing and the Illustrator drawing afterwards. 2 different things done, 98 to go! Hehehe!
Thing # 3 – Drawing a Self-Portrait – Inspired by Alex (Summerhill Art Teacher)
I have never been as disciplined as I would like to in terms of drawing. I love writing stories but I feel like I can’t draw, but I guess I am a bit too perfectionist and instead of having fun, I end up not doing it. However, I drew my first self-portrait based on a a selfie I took of myself. I will post both, the orinal pic and the drawing!
It was fun and challenging but I am happy with the outcome. 🙂
