Why Online Challenges are Great Creativity Boosters - The 100 Day Challenge - Part 2


Hello!  Today I am sharing the art from days 21 - 40 of my participation in the second 20 days of the #100dayproject on Instagram.  A few weeks ago, I posted days 1 - 20 here.  If you follow my friend Marjie's blogyou know that she is also participating in this creativity party that began on Instagram on April 19th. Each square represents 4 days of posts on Instagram. 



The only requirement to be part of the challenge was to commit to some kind of daily creativity (writing, art, photo, cooking - whatever!).  I came up with the idea of #100daysofquirkycritters, and Marjie decided on #100daysofsmallsquares. You can find both our Instagram feeds here: Jessica's Instagram and Marjie's Instagram.




It's amazing how my designs have blossomed from simple quirky critters to an alphabet and now to numbers.  I wonder where I'll go next!




I don't think I would have ever completed this alphabet but for this challenge.  And now I've started on numbers!!



I hope you'll stay tuned to see how the rest of my alphabet shapes up.  You can jump into the challenge any time.   If you're participating in the challenge, please leave your handle and hashtag in the comments.  I'd love to see what you're doing!

Thanks for visiting.  Your comments make me so happy and let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will happily answer any questions as soon as I can.

Mucking Around in My Art Journal III


Here's the third installment of "Mucking Around" in my art journal.  No plan, no destination - just playing in my art journal with no particular goal in mind.

This art journal page started as a gelli print to which I adhered one of my "tough tissue paper" motifs from my lesson for 21Secrets (you can still purchase this "forever yours" class by the way - it's pretty amazing -- 21 artists share videos, techniques, tutorials, etc. for $98).  



The page sat idle for months, until I returned to it to experiment with using pink, a color I'm not very comfortable with.  It's wonderful what "mucking around" can lead to! 

Here's a just-over-4 minute video showing my process.  I hope you enjoy it.  



You can also watch "Mucking Around in My Art Journal III" on YouTube!

Love for Orlando

In response to this weekend's tragic events in at Orlando's Pulse nightclub, Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda's has established an officially-licensed merchandise site, Tee-Rico.

The proceeds from the company's "Love Is Love," t-shirt,  designed by me - Jessica Sporn (!!) -  will benefit Equality Cares in Florida to support their efforts to secure equality and justice for Florida's LGBT community. Shirts are printed by Nightsweats & T-Cells, a company 100% staffed with HIV employees for over 20 years.



The shirt comes in women's and men's sizes, and we hope to have the designs on more products soon.  

Please visit Teerico to buy the shirts and share the love.
