Daily February 2019

four small tins

Join in now!

I wrote a more detailed description of the project at Clever Manka’s blog. The gist is – make a thing, or do a thing, every day, for all of February.

Choose something small and manageable, that you have materials on hand for and that won’t take more than 15 or 20 minutes a day at minimum. You can always work more!

Choose something that can be counted or measured, that does not require any judgement about whether or not it is done.

Take a picture and post it to Instagram. Tag it #dailyFeb2019 then browse around and see what other people are working on. I’m lee.thomson.art on Instagram, friend me so I can see too!

Write it down!

I want to write more, so I have started by writing about a (short, relatively simple) process I’ve been using to light up art I am installing in tiny tins. I pitched it to Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine but to my chagrin they stopped publishing at the end of 2018.

So I wrote it up neatly, took nice pictures, and posted it to Instructables – a veritable treasure trove of things to make and think about making. If you want to put a LED in a tin to light up a tiny artwork, this is the place to look. Thank you!
