Seeds of Joy Art Show
Background: I threw an art show at a SoMA art venue with a friend to celebrate our 100 day project journeys. The 100 day project is a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. On April 17, 2018, I began illustration 1 of 100 of my every day joys. I started this project because I wanted to keep a journal as a form of meditation to pay attention to what brought me joy every day and practice vulnerability. I created joy bags that I gave away that included stickers of some of my favorite illustrations, joymarks (bookmarks), and matches that encouraged people to “spark their own joy”.
Result: The show sold out!
