It's official! #The100DayProject has begun! Every day until mid-July, I'll be posting the insides of my sketchbook and my work with the focus of lettering! Inspired by the Daily Drop Cap project of Jessica Hische, I'm going to try a hopefully successful attempt of furthering my hand-lettering skills for the next 100 days, using the hashtag #100daysofsevenellemakes. Of course, there might be a few random projects thrown in here and there for the sake of making and trying my best to avoid creative block, but here we go!
Follow @sevenellecreative or my personal page, @jessthatsme on Instagram for more of my creative ramblings and explorations.
Learn more about the people behind the project: The Great Discontent, and Elle Luna, her amazing artwork, and her book, The Crossroads of Should and Must. (Highly recommended!)

This past weekend, I participated in my first official art show. I'm not a stranger to the art scene, as I was creative director of a once-prestigious gallery in Chicago, though I had never pursued the chance to show my own work. My input was primarily promotion and maintenance of the brand we had worked to build. Now, as a showing artist, my responsibilities had shifted to creating and showcasing my own photography and capturing an audience to which I was completely unknown. And so, I took a chance and applied for Liberty Arts Squared, an experience I knew nothing about from a showing-artist standpoint.
Liberty Arts Squared is a festival located in downtown Liberty, Missouri on the Historic Liberty Square. Those who grew up in the area, such as myself, are familiar with the long-standing traditions and history that is upheld on the sidewalks surrounding the Clay County Courthouse. On one of the corners stands a bank, now known as the Jesse James Bank Museum, a brick building complete with a gift shop. History buffs would recognize Jesse James as the culprit for the first successful daylight bank robbery, a moment in time still reenacted to this day (complete with horses and artificial weaponry).
"What if I fall?" "Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?"
This venture as a whole was incredibly eye-opening and encouraging, as people from all over wandered from booth to booth in pursuit of an art that spoke to them. In all honesty, though I had applied a few months ago, I didn't receive the official letter of acceptance until just a couple weeks before the show itself, so I was in need of a system that was efficient and quick to come together. I had a lot to figure out in a short amount of time; where do I get a tent? How much will everything cost? What about prints? And the frames? How do I show everything in my booth? The whole experience was a rollercoaster ride of excitement and anxiety, but I learned so much about myself and others, even a few lessons along the way.
