My 100 Day food illustration project – from A to Z!
I wrapped up the 2016 edition of The 100 Day Project at the end of July and, just like last year, it was a terrific experience that served to remind me of many of the lessons I learned in 2015. I didn’t blog about it much here because, let’s be frank, I haven’t blogged much about anything this year – although I am trying to be consistent
Has everyone heard of the 10,000 Hour Rule by now? It was put forward by author Malcolm Gladwell with the reasoning behind it being that in order to become really really good at what you do, you need to put in 10,000 hours of actually doing it. Yeah.

Valentine’s Day is only two week’s away and so today I’m actually ahead of the game for once!

And… and… I have a cute colouring book giveaway as well! I haven’t really done an “inside my studio” update for
One of the most common questions I get asked, mostly on Instagram, revolves around what pens and markers I use for my 10 Minute Doodles on Instagram and my bigger art projects.

What can 100 days do? No really… what can you do in 100 days? Where does it get you? I mean… it doesn’t sound like much.

It’s such a small number that it feels totally achievable and yet, so achievable that it almost creates a “why bother” attitude… it’s not enough to really
