Artisan Challenge 2016
It is time to do the midway update on the “Artisan Challenge“.
YES. I know “technically” the midway update was due on the 1st July, which is midway through the year. But I was running a bit late, and since this is my blog I can claim one and a half months as “a bit” 🙂
And you’re not the boss of me Internet!
The Challenge for 2016 we are calling “Artisan 2016”
Artisannoun: artisan; plural noun: artisansa worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
The reason for this name? Well because all the challenges (and there are three parts) are artistic or creative in nature.
Quarterly Non LOLS Papers
Once again “You’re not the boss of me!” I know the generally accepted definition of Quarterly is every quarter, but I have decided to count it as four over the year. Now before you get all shouty in the original description of this part of the challenge I did state “I am aiming for four papers over the year, and since I will probably do the Quarterly LOLS papers again this year, the new challenge is for none LOLS papers of topics I pick myself.” So four papers over the whole year.
- Paper 1: Kuji-In – An Introduction to the Nine Hand Seals. COMPLETED
- Paper 2: Unnamed – Research complete and its currently being written up
- Paper 3: Unnamed – Researching
- Paper 4: NO IDEA YET
I did do a post a short while back updating how the Art project was going. (By Short while back I mean at the 1/4 mark) Since then the project has continued along, with doodles and plans, and small bits being worked on.
Below are a few snippets of bits of the doodles/notes in no particular order/sense.
This started on April 1st and ran for oddly 100 days until it finished.
It can be viewed over at my 100Days Blog.
