Drawing A Day #1: The glass half full
Thirty years ago, my sister and I were endlessly drawing murals of mermaids or farm animals on multiple sheets of folding dot-matrix printer paper.
One year ago, we found out that our Dad has Stage 4 colon cancer in his liver and lungs. He has been undergoing chemo since August.
Now, my sister and I are returning to our collaborative roots to hold an ongoing fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). We will take turns creating and posting a Drawing A Day (weekdays only) — hence, “The D.A.D. Project” — then selling them as prints online, with $10 per sale going directly to the CCS. This blog will likely serve as therapy and healthy distraction, and hopefully also as inspiration for us and maybe others too.
Without further ado, the very first D.A.D. — The glass half full:
This is what came of brainstorming about the word ‘launch’, and the power of optimism.
Our illustrations will be output as archival-quality giclée prints that will fit in an 8 x 10 frame. We will have them printed as they’re ordered; this will save on both overhead costs and paper.
We’d love to hear from you as we work on our project: feedback about the project or specific drawings, questions, advice, anecdotes, or even just a simple ‘hello’… and we especially invite suggestions for words or turns of phrases that you’d like to see us tackle.
Until the next!
