100 days - day 1

I have undertaken 100 days - a venture where those onboard repeat the same design/creative task everyday for 100 days. I am creating images of my 3 month old son, Louis.

Today I had lots of ideas, beginner's enthusiasm is a wonderful thing. I took a couple of photos of cute moments and decided to also undertake a sketch...

Louis cannot yet roll over (except once, by accident) but he can rotate on the spot. When he's unfettered by a bulky nappy, he is very agile and moves a lot. The towel was supposed to protect the carpet from any accidents. Fortunately there were none.

We usually take Louis in the shower with us, but we're in water-conservation mode post last Tuesday's Earthquake and the water is not safe to drink. What that means is that we are showering less regularly and Louis probably shouldn't be in with us as he tends to drink a little bit while he's in there. Bath time on the lawn was a fun alternative.

This does not capture him, but I'm sure I'll get better at that. And at drawing a moving object. 1 down. 99 to go.

  1. I'm looking forward to seeing Louis grow over the next 100 days. Will also be really interesting to see the different ways you choose to capture his image :)
