In Celebration of 100 Clouds

Cloud 95: A brain glides past.

This weekend, I’m glad to be able to say that I’ve done 100 illustrations for Rorsketch. From the project site:

Rorsketch is an art project where I draw my interpretations of ordinary objects.

The first part of the name comes from the Rorshach test, a psychological test in which people’s perceptions of inkblots are recorded and subsequently analyzed. While the Rorschach is used to examine a subject’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning, I intended for Rorsketch as a way for us to be mindful of the other things―the potential―that we can see in ordinary objects.

This is a project of imagination. I use it as a reminder to myself that things are not always what they seem, and that the world is replete with possibility. Inspiration can be mined from anywhere, especially from things we often take for granted or ignore. Meditating upon these images has allowed me to go beyond what I see and to find joy in the quotidian.

While this project is not (and will never be!) truly over, reaching that three-digit number feels quite fulfilling.
