Hi, everyone! For the next month things are going to be a little different on the blog. Given my growing interest in fashion, I've decided to participate in Winter 2011's 30 for 30 remix challenge, devised by Kendi Everyday. In a nutshell, the challenge is to wear 30 different outfits for 30 days using a maximum of 30 pieces of clothing (including tops, bottoms, shoes, and jackets/coats). I thought it would be kind of fun to do and document here.
The idea is to post an outfit daily; I have to be honest with you, it's a busy time for me, art-wise, and I may not be able to do that. But I will photograph every outfit and you'll see them posted sooner or later! Pinky-swear!
So above is a sketch I did of my 30 pieces. Most of it is stuff I wear all the time anyway, but I threw a few wild cards in there, things that I hardly wear but I'd like to work back into my wardrobe. Hopefully this whole exercise will not only broaden the way I think about dressing myself, but also how I think about dressing my characters. Here's to the next 30 days!
For the sake of historical documentation, I want to ensure you readers that I did, in fact, complete the challenge. However, I found that 30 posts showing photos of myself with no art didn't belong on this blog after all. So I took them down. Thanks to everyone who left awesome, supportive comments during the challenge! The fashion blogging community is truly a warm, inviting one and it was nice to be a part of it for a little while.

Oh, I love your drawing!!! I also drew my items, but didn't have time to add color. Good luck with the 30 for 30.ReplyDelete
