This year, I'm taking on a 365 day-long challenge to spend at least 10 minutes a day making an original illustration!

Here are the tools I'll be using:







I'll be adding all of the illustrations here on my website as I go, so feel free to check in every once in a while! If you're curious about the project or process behind it, here are some more ways to follow along:

  • Instagram - Creme de la Creme!
  • Pinterest - Inspiration

Follow @thegladdestthingshop on Insta to see highlights on the best pieces, time lapse videos, and workspace photos. :)

Here's my Pinterest board full of color palettes and artwork that I'll be using to keep myself inspired and pepped up!


And if you want to start your own 365 day project, here are some amazing resources that really helped me!

Bardot Brushes - I'm using the Texturrific Brush Bundle

Dylan Mierwzinski's completed 100 day challenge

Dizzy Tara's Sketch Pack brushes (especially the Vine Charcoal Sketch brush!). I found these through Sara Faber, one of my favorite illustrator/YouTubers! They're only $1 (but you can pay whatever you think is fair through Gumroad!) and give such an amazing, sketchy-but-still-polished texture to any illustration.
