100 days of mini art

There must be some secret in being consistent with what you do and I don’t know it. This was the trigger for me to start a project called “100 days of mini art”. I committed to do mini art and publish it every day for the next 100 days. I will do paintings, drawings, illustrations, typography – basically anything that is going on in my life and in my head during that day.

As I start thinking in this direction, I decided to do it small size, or as the title says, mini. First because it doesn’t consume lots of time to do it, second because it is simple and third – because tiny things are important in our lives.

I was heroin addict and I know how it is when you are considered useless and how important it is to get one more chance. So, for this project, beside canvas, I will include different materials to work on, such as credit cards, visit cards, cardboard from shoe boxes etc. In other words, to give another chance to all those tiny things that are just laying without purpose and waiting to be thrown away. Smart, huh? :)

I believe that the world is good and that in the end, the good prevails. So, hopefully, after finishing this, maybe some rich person will invest some of his money and publish this in a nice booklet and then we can sell it and give the profit to some people in need. I know that pessimists will say “It’s impossible”, but I believe ;)

Day 1

There was this piece of cardboard from some old children shoe-box and the shape was reminding me of a face, especially with those ears on the top, so I was thinking to make cow head. But, I am 39 years old now and have enough experience to know that sometimes parents should listen what their children has to say, so I’ve asked my son Viktor for advice and he said: “Pig head will be nicer.” And it is :)

Welcome to this journey. Here is day 1.
