Introducing NannerSquid and friends...

This is a blog based on Noah Scalin's 365: A Daily Creativity Journal. I'm thinking of two different year-long projects: the first one being a daily fruit sticker inspired by those nifty Chiquita banana stickers. I've decided to focus on these fun designs because of the massive amounts of creative contained in each one. They seem so simple until you realize that they are all created with a limited color palette (yellow, blue, and white is all you get) in a limited space (small, stocky oval).

So meet NannerSquid, the first of my daily fruit stickers. This was created in Inkscape - an awesome, freeware vector illustration program. It took about an hour and a half to make including sketching, scanning, planning, and messing around with vector tools.

The other project I have been considering will involve making a painting using gouache once per day. That idea would need some tightening up to really work.
So please follow this blog, and hold me accountable for these images. Thanks.
