A Poem & Drawing a Day Project – Just Reached 100 Days!!

Back on the 24th July I got this crazy idea to start a new wordpress blog documenting myself writing a poem a day, and creating a fast and responsive drawing to the poem…. a drawing which could possibly be further developed at a later stage, perhaps in a larger format.

Today is Day 100!

And it had been a very interesting experience.  While I enjoy recording my thoughts, writing a ‘poem’ every day takes a fair amount of dedication and discipline, and then a drawing on top of that…

It has also been enriching, however. Purging can be very therapeutic I have discovered! So purging on a writing AND drawing level is doubly therapeutic!

Below is a slideshow of some of the more recent drawing inspired by the poems of the past 100 days. Under the slideshow is a photo gallery of the same images – so view whichever format you prefer. Enjoy 🙂

  1. Congratulations, that is a great achievement Dawn. It is good to have a goal set for your blog. Someone asked me yesterday about how do I do a post a day, and I said, because I have to, that is what I do, if I stop doing one a day, then I won’t get around to do it at all.

    • Thanks Leanne… yes it definably becomes a routine thing… with my other blog I sometimes struggle to post weekly just simply because the ‘routine’ is not there… but its been a good experience. i don’t know how I will keep it up in Italy, but we will see 🙂
