Happy Monday folks!

I’ve been itching to write for the past few days, but I had to hold myself back to make sure that I don’t dip my paws into the website before it’s fully ready. So there’s lots of catch up on, so I’m just going to dive right in with the work of Summer Pierre!

Summer Pierre is well-known for writing and illustrating one-page illustrated stories, which occasionally gets published in zine form. Her latest project is 100 stories in 100 days – in which she flexes her muscles further by committing to a daily regime of creating. You can read more over at her blog, or check the collection out over at Flickr.

Take-away message for the week: Stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and exercise those creative muscles! If you’ve been doing the same thing over and over again, why not change things up a little? Whether it’s changes in frequency (like what Summer is doing), or changes in the selection of your subject matter (drawing cupcakes all the time? Maybe it’s time to trade it in for a messy plate of spaghetti!) – don’t be scared to mix it up a little.
