what do 200 posts look like?

a little like this…
200 blog posts

my scanner was being fritzy, and i wasn’t able to capture a proper photo of it without a bit of distortion. i thought about going to get a high quality scan done, but you know what? the mistakes and rough edges have always been a part of my process here. and with all that is going on around the world right now, i couldn’t really bring myself to sweat the small stuff.

and so, 200 posts including this one. each and every post i’ve written is represented in some way or another in my drawing there. little bitty sketches inked with my 02 and 05 micron pigma pens. so much fun.

and my favourite part… every person who has ever commented, you’re up there too. i went through 127 pages of comments (yeah. i know. chatty bunch.) and wrote out your names.

that took a while, but you’re worth it ;-) you’re as much a part of this blog as …. as … that old couch.

there it is!!

(did i just compare them to a couch? but… i really like that couch!)

seriously though. thanks to everyone who reads along.

200 posts detail

you make this even better. see you at 201.

    You’re such a talented artist, I love each little icon in this drawing- and how personal and interactive this is by including everyone’s name in it! You’re a trooper, going through all those pages!

  19. Jacqueline says:

    I can’t believe you went through all those comments. Super Impressed! Mor impressed with your work though, it’s such a thoughtful, memorable project. I’m going to keep staring at it until I find my name! If you can go through that many comments, I can go through that many names!

    Holy CRAP, Ana. You’re amazing. A.MAZE.ING. (Had to add an “e” in when I did it that way. Huh.) I found myself, too! In fact it was probably the third thing I saw. Not sure what that says about me. Pls do not analyze, mkay?

    Congrats on 200 posts!

  24. yet again I am late to the party! nevertheless… Congrats! & what an amazing way to show your celebration for your 200th post! This drawing is really blowing myt mind… specifically that you went through all of those comments to transcribe names. WOW!

  25. Jo Chopra says:

    This is spectacular! What an idea! I had fun spotting all the many people I’ve been introduced to through your blog, as well as – I think – finding my own name (Jo C?).

    Where do you come up with all these ideas? Stunning. Simply stunning.

    • imadeitso says:

      thank you, i’m not sure where the ideas come from. i think i’ve been doodling this way for as long as i can remember. definitely a visual learner and many of my university notes had similar sketches alongside to make sense of things. and yes, you’re there as Jo C :)

  26. Ann says:

    Wow, this is completely over the top, Ana! Kudos to you for the most imaginative bloggy celebration I’ve even encountered. Keep up the fabulous work.

  27. WOW – you must have too much time on your hands! ;D no really that’s fantastic and i’m just jealous of your talent! :P

  28. Lindsay Ann says:

    You are freaking wonderful.

    Probably the BEST “Thanks for reading” post I’ve ever seen. You always make me happy. =]
