Maslen Daily : Circular Motion

Wow. What a year 2020 has been! Who could have imagined a global pandemic would sweep across the world with such ferocity and speed. It has put me in the mood for another year long challenge for 2021, like the one I completed in 2015 (when I wrote and illustrated a haiku every day for the entire year). However, Circular Motion will be a little bit different……..

I propose to draw a circular illustration every day of the year, with a corresponding poem containing syllables matching to the date it is written. For example, a poem written on the 14th of April 2021 would consist of 6 lines with the following syllable count 1/4/4/2/ line break 2/1


Shining gently

Over the sea

At night


Makes me






I do not plan to reveal the poems until the project is finished, the daily drawings will however be uploaded every day on instagram @maslendaily and on my Maslen Daily Facebook page.  I plan to exhibit the drawings and the poems to go with them in Jan 2022, and then post all drawings, with poems, at the beginning of Jan 2022 to whoever has bought them. I have my diary at the ready, so you can send me an email, or get me on instagram or Facebook,  whichever is easier, if you want to reserve dates in advance to purchase for yourself, or as a present for someone. Each drawing + poem will be £12, with £1 covering postage and £2 going towards Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
