Motivations


I started this project because I love making things. And because I wanted a regular creative accountability mechanism. A blank canvas. A public forcing function.

Here's the origin story.

And my reflections, after 100 weeks.



First time here?

Take a drawing course.
Invest in a self-care week.
Try a reflection / growth exercise.

Three topics I'm drawn to :

1. Learning and knowledge
2. Bodies, health, and movement
3. Arts, design, and creativity


I learn a lot from people.
