This year, my 100 Day Project is going to be a series of collages on 5x8 paper, using bright colors and minimal plant shapes. I'm calling the series 100 Paper Ponnos.
For those who don't know, The 100 Day Project is a worldwide movement where people choose an act of creativity to perform every day for 100 days. It can be literally anything and you can modify the project to fit your needs. Last year, I created 100 small paintings, each with a different, colorful pattern. It was a series of exploration. You see, I'd recently quit my full time job and desperately needed a creative outlet. A small painting per day was an easy way for me to explore the world of acrylic painting – and as a result, I'm the artist I am today.
This year, I'm exploring the world of collage through minimal shapes and of course, bright colors. Each week, I'll update this post with the eight latest Paper Ponnos. The project ends July 10th and will culminate at a summer art show that I'm planning as we speak. The only thing I know about the show so far is that it will be in Chicago, sometime in July or August, and will feature these collages along with other recent works.
If you're impatient like me and would rather see this series update in real time, follow the hashtag #100PaperPonnos on Instagram. In the meantime, stay tuned. I'm excited to see what this series looks like on July 10th!
