About this time last year, I began to see people all over blogland taking part in a daily art project called ICAD - index card a day:
It does exactly what it says on the can - the challenge is to do SOMETHING on a plain old office-supplies index card every day - write / draw / paint / collage - SOMETHING. There are optional prompts to use if you want to, other days you can just do something of your own devising. The challenge lasts two months and I think the plan is to ease people into daily creativity.
So, like I said, last year I watched other people playing, but I didn't join in as I thought 'every day' sounded a tad scary.
But this year I must be braver because I am playing along :) And so is Connor which is super cool, it's great sitting down with him every evening to do something creative.
We're now at the end of week one, so without further ado, here are my first 7 cards:
|prompt: doodle your name|
|prompt: fish, collage|
|prompts: grid, testing new pens|
|prompts: dictionary, draw your camera(s)|
|prompts: yellow, dragonfly|
Connor and I are making a display of all our cards on the "tatty wall" in the front room. So called because that's the wall where our (sadly no longer with us) pet rats ate the wallpaper!
It's already looking pretty cool - and there are still another 7 weeks to go:
|Tatty wall - week 1|
Anyone else out there ICAD-ing?
