For the last few years I have been doing different art challenges. You know, the kind that give you a topic, or word, and then you make a drawing to go with. This year I decided to switch things up and stop doing those to focus on doing more of my own projects and less of those. There just wasn’t enough time in my life for both. Inadvertently, I managed to start a new one…sort of. There are quite a few people with birthdays in my life and about half way through the year I decided to start making cards for them. I certainly didn’t hit everyone, but as I was finishing up two today I realized that I had done quite a few. Twelve in total. Not sure if I’ll continue into next year, but I quite enjoyed doing them. They also got more and more elaborate I noticed. Even though theses cards had a simple theme, practice sure made proficient, cause I can certainly see the improvement as I went along.
