ART & STORIES BY MARICHIT GARCIA
I started this on the first of June and it will end around the second week of September. On a daily basis it eats up at least an hour, and more if I need to catch up. It took me some deliberation before I decided to do it, because it will be a responsibility. But I need to put in the same discipline and commitment to my art the same way I did to my dayjob, otherwise, the dayjob will always win and the art will always be a sideshow.
I've done x-day challenges before but I never quite managed to complete them. I realised it was because I never thought about how exactly they could help me as an artist other than getting the temporary high of watching the "likes" multiply. I had to understand the why and how so that every time I sit down to make the piece it is clear what I am building towards. In the end, since I want to become a full-time artist, I have to think strategy. What can a 100-day project help me with? I have limited time and resources. I cannot be whimsical all the time.
The Merits of a 100-Day Project
Updates to this 100-day project are posted regularly on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Page.
Special captions on history, musings, and odd rambles about the pieces are available to patrons in my Patreon page. (Patrons gain access to all exclusive posts for as low as $2 a month.)
If you enjoy the content of this website please consider sending the artist an energising coffee via Ko-fi. ^_^
