Gibbs Rounsavall: “365″

On August 30 2009 I challenged myself to produce one finished piece every day for exactly one year.  Keeping with Milton Glaser’s philosophy, “Limitation stimulates the imagination”, I limited myself to making only self-portraits, using 11 x 17 Bristol paper, a variety of reflective surfaces, and any mark making tool I could find. Each drawing was completed with a caption thus becoming both a visual and written record of the year.  This was a more intimate approach to expression than I was previously used to working.  The result of the project was my gaining of a broader, truer sense of self and the reminder of how essential play is in the creative process.
