I finished it! Almost a year and a half late, but my quest of the index-card-a-day challenge from 2018 is at an end. Week 8 (prompts: radio, mint, postage, cassette tape, tide pool, circuit or network, typewriter):
Week 9 (prompts: twister, favorite color, staple, wish, telescope):
These little daily challenges are great exercises in many ways. They also prove the theory that you have to make a lot of stuff to get decent at art, and a fair amount of what you make isn’t good. So, is bad art still art? It exists, but should it? Many of my cards are terrible. There are a few gems, and some that I could have done better, but I won’t re-do those. I am keeping all of my ICAD efforts, and over the winter I will make fabric boxes to hold each year’s cards.
I am going to forge ahead and finish the cards for the first year I tried the challenge, 2017, but I won’t post my efforts as frequently. I don’t think that I will stick to the one-a-day pace that I set for finishing 2018 (not to mention that I should have done one card a day when the challenge was current). On Thursday, some thoughts on my fabric collage boxes.
