New Art for Thing-a-Day

I've been slogging away at Thing-a-Day this month. I've made a lot of jewelry and origami that I haven't posted here, but I thought I'd share these two little creatures. I made the owl in flash, and the Jackalope is on a teeny-tiny canvas with gold glitter. These were both a lot of fun to make.

This week's theme on Illustration Friday was "Choose". With the MCAS (Massachusetts state assessment tests) coming up soon, some of the kids in the school where I work have become preoccupied with test scores. I think it's a shame how the education system has become so focused on standardized testing — turning children into little "test-heads".

I've been participating in this year's Thing-a-Day. Everyone who signs up makes one thing each day in February and posts it on the site. So far it's been a great motivator for me, and it's also great to see what other people are working on. Here are the first four things I made: a tiny painting with glitter, a bead necklace, a sketchbook and five paper cranes.

Now I need to go brainstorm about what to make today!
