Who new that a simple yet elegant dinner of wine and a KitKat bar could get such attention.
It's such a great idea to launch a project that:
That's what Ella Luna's 100 Day Project is all about. #The100DayProject is a social media project where participants commit to doing one creative action each day for 100 days. The project began on April 6, 2015 and concludes on July 14, 2015.
As part of #The100DayProject, I have committed to drawing people, places and things that "delight" me. It's been interesting to discover the things that captivate me. Often, it's special moments (not material things) that grab my attention. For example, one day quite by chance, I took a bite of a caramel-filled milk chocolate digestive biscuit and a bite of banana at the same time. The flavour combination..was delightful! Who knew?
#The100DayProject is also a fantastic way to connect with other creative folk on social media and be inspired by their work.
Below is a selection of my favourite "delightful" drawings so far...
To see more delightful daily drawings, follow me on:
