"One million one month" (2020)
Project: This is the 2nd edition of a daily art challenge initiated by a group of wonderful people commited to raise awareness for endangered species on this planet. (www.onemilliononemonth.com for more info)
I first stumbled upon this project last year and immediately wanted to take part. The timing didn't fit back then unfortunately. Now I am excited to be able to carve out some time to draw as many of the daily prompts as possible. 
There is a list with the species associated with each day of the challenge (May 15th - June 16th 2020). If you create something, upload it on the date noted with the hashtags #onemillionomemonth and #1m1mvol2 to get a chance to be featured on their Instagram page
Why?: Raising awareness for environmental issues, and animal welfare has always been one of my main motivators to create stuff.
Since the Coronavirus pandemic crisis I hardly have any commissions on the table. But I do have loads of thoughts, ideas and emotions about the current and future state of our planet Earth that I want to express.
I have been on a personal mission to hone my skills and explore new illustration techniques for a while - especially since I got my first iPad Pro this year. So initially I had planned to jump right into the #mermay (mermaid drawing challenge) this May. Which would be even more my type of personal ocean-soul project.
However, given the current situation, I found it much more valuable to put my skills training in a meaningful context and support the fights against extinction of all these amazingly awesome creatures.
Hope you enjoy my journey in exploring new styles
