This was a self-initiated project where i decided to draw one item from my cubicle, everyday for 30 days, on just a 4"x4" yellow post-it note. I began the project on July 19, 2010 and completed the project on August 31, 2010. These artworks were made on my lunch hour, where i did a quick (but detailed) drawing of each, using just a gel pen.
Since i was limited on time, i decided to complete each post-it drawing within 30 minutes (or half of my lunch hour). Most of these drawings took about 15-20 minutes to complete, with the exception of the keyboard, monitor, and the open binder drawing, which used two post-it notes and took about 30-40 minutes. Once i completed the post-it drawing for the day, i put it up in consecutive order in my cubicle gallery (taped onto a shelf).
Part of the reason i decided to take on a project like this was to make sure i didn't get rusty at drawing, as well as keeping myself involved with art since finishing school.
After graduating and being away from my art classes, where we were drawing things either for assignments or as sketches for digital projects, i found that i hadn't spent a lot of time drawing. From this i decided to start up drawing something everyday; in this case, items from my office cubicle.
The art i made on the post-its have their imperfections, since i didn't sketch anything out prior to drawing the objects. But these irregularities give character to each of the small artworks. I hope you enjoy viewing the post-it project in the 'view gallery' section! : )
