The daily card, week 31

I feel like I'm back in a groove with this project after a slump. The thumbprint monsters were totally inspired by Katie Licht and were a perfect creative release after a long day at work. The airplant sketch, similarly, is a tribute to my sole living companion when I'm in the office after hours.

As the first Republican primary approached, I got the catchy phrase "not my circus, not my monkeys" stuck in my head. I was delighted to discover (via Gawker) that it's a Polish saying - nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy. And I'm always glad for a chance to use my "VOTE" stamp before 2016 rolls around.

As I prepare to take steps in a new direction, more and more mantras and motivational phrases are creeping in to the cards. I've been liking the results.

As a creative challenge, I am decorating a playing card every day in 2015. More context on this project is here and you can see all past card posts here.
