I often try to remember how I discovered artists on instagram and usually fail. Instagram is a wonderful place to connect with artists! But however it happened, one day I found Tori with drawriot and was intrigued by her daily art journal.
After going back to school in 2016, I knew art would be limited and decided that I would attempt Tori’s #drawriot daily prompts for 2017. My hunt to find the mini moleskine turned into a comedy that forced me to begin the journey at the end of February! I searched amazon high and low, ordered one that didn’t arrive! The envelope came, but the moleskine was not inside. There were no more to be found, so I found a couple sellers on abe books. I received one from Europe late in the game, and received one from a US seller. However, the US seller was not the right mini moleskine! It was a weekly instead of daily. Finally, I had one to use and began the journey a bit late.
Even though I didn’t fill every page, and technically wasn’t successful, I look at this 2017 art journal as a story of the year. School, life events, and a hurricane left some pages blank and partially completed. However, new friendships and adventures fill the other pages.
