I made it to 100. I made it kicking and screaming, but I made it.
- I'm proud of myself. Really really proud of myself. There wasn't a single day that I let this project drop. For 100 consecutive days I challenged myself to make a face and film the process. In hotel rooms, on set, at home, during sick days, when I didn't want to, when I was out of ideas, at 11:30pm -- all of those days, I made it happen.
- I'm so glad it's over. I still love faces. I still love creating things. I still love sharing my process. But I am delighted to not have "make a face, film it, edit the video, post it" on my to do list every single day.
- I grew. I think I grew. I feel like I grew. I certainly gained some confidence. I know this sounds crazy, but I've never felt like I could draw. Every time I manage to create something that vaguely looks like I want it to, I'm impressed. This project reminded me that the ability to draw is a skill you can gain with practice. We all can draw. We just need to practice.
- I don't know if I would do it again. But, you know I say that every single time I finish a major project. Give me a few months and maybe I'll change my mind? Or maybe once in a lifetime is fine with me? There are those people who run a marathon once in their lives and there are those who make it a lifestyle. I'm not sure which type I am yet.
- 100 days is very different from 31 days. For several years I've been doing "Carve December" -- carving a stamp every day in December. I figured that 100 days wouldn't feel that different from 31. After all, I've done other month-long daily projects like lettering and patterning and scrapbooking. I figured I had some good art muscles and good art discipline. However, this project really tested me. I would do another month-long project without hesitation. 100 days is three months plus some.
- It's amazing how long and how short 15 minutes is. You can do so much in 15 minutes using some techniques, like a ballpoint pen or markers. You run out of time doing techniques like collage or anything with layers. But knowing how much I can accomplish in 15 minutes reminds me that making art every day is absolutely possible.
