A Book a Day? What's Up With That?

Hi, and welcome to this year-long project. So what's this all about and how did it happen, you might ask. In mid 2007, artist Noah Scalin decided to make a skull out of anything he could find, every day for a year. It stretched him in ways he never imagined, as an artist, a writer and a person. His experience turned into a blog that went viral, and then a book.

Others have picked up on the idea: 365 Hearts, 365 Masks, 365 Bears drawn on a cellphone, 365 paper napkin mustaches.
I wanted to play, too, and I chose books. I love books, I know a bit about making books (thanks to my talented book-maker sister, Marilyn Worrix), and they're broad enough in definition to give me a lot of creative leeway.

The whole point is not really the books. The idea is to stretch myself in many ways as an artist and a person, to set up a discipline, stick with it and see what that teaches me.

I hope you'll join with me and follow along on the journey chronicled here, and let me know what you think.

Special Post: An Apology for Technical Problems

I owe my faithful followers an apology. No only has my sister's computer managed once again to erase more than a dozen photos from my camera's memory card, it has also managed to "write protect" said card, meaning I cannot now use it to retake the photos. Grrrrr.

Guess I'll have to get a new memory card tomorrow and start again. I now have 6, or is it 7, books finished that I can't photograph and post. Double grrrrr...

Anyway, stick with me here, I should be back here tomorrow with our regularly scheduled program.

  1. I think I'd wait till I got home, if I were you. Just take the pics and save them till then. I'd be afraid it will just screw up a new card for you, too. :(
