Week thirteen – unlucky for some! And I do feel like this has been a bit of a rubbish week. As the project draws closer to the end, the pressure is on for all of my triangles to be on point (pun intended). There’s only a few triangles left to post, which makes my selection process even harder than before. I’ve really been trying to push myself but this week I was really lacking in motivation, and not just for the project. You might have noticed that last week I only posted once instead of the usual three posts. Recently I’m feeling exhausted; physically, mentally and creatively. This week I’ve noticed that my blog views have taken a hit (which I’m guessing is the repercussions of the amazing weather) and my ‘grams haven’t been getting as many likes. The temperature is high and the pressure is on, but I know I need to keep going…
I can’t believe there’s only 9 days left of #The100DayProject and now, more than ever, I need your support to keep me going!
85 – Keeping it simple with golden triangles – who else sees a crown?
86 – Beautiful blue skies above the rooftops. The calm before the storm…
87 – … and the centre of the storm – the hottest July day EVER! Illustrated with this print that I have hanging on my desk at work. I wasn’t 100% happy with this though, hence the reason for posting 87.5:
87.5 – After work I attended a D&AD Presidents Lecture by Margaret Calvert. One half of the team behind the British Road signage system, Margaret’s work is part of everyday life in the UK. Sitting in a boiling room packed with 1000+ people on the hottest day of the year was a nightmare, but it was worth it to hear Margaret talk about her work/career. I’ll be writing a full post about it later this week so look forward to that!
88 – Feeling hot, but still rocking Doc Martens because my feet don’t agree with sandals (so many blisters!). I stumbled across this beautiful monochrome mosaic floor passing the Blues Kitchen in Shoreditch and couldn’t resist a From Where I Stand shot.
89 – A new experience for me; for the studio summer party we headed to Sandown Racecourse for bubbles and betting. I usually play it safe, but when someone else is paying… 🙂 I got lucky and won £14 after backing a horse name ‘Miniaturist’ because us short arses need to stick together. For the last race of the day we formed a studio syndicate… here’s me hiding behind our losing ticket.
90 – Saturday sunshine with my favourite lilac-haired lady, Lucy!
91 – Red Hot Chilli Southbank. On Sunday Jack, Lucy and I explored Southbank in the sunshine. A great atmosphere with so much buzz and lots of street art waiting to be discovered, I totally recommend a walk along Southbank.
As we had into the last stretch of the project, thanks for everyone’s support! For the final 9 days, please show and share the love by following me on Instagram @natasha_nuttall and via my hashtag #100daysoftriangles. See you next Monday for the penultimate #The100DayProject post; Week 14!
