The creation of this drawing project almost coincided with the beginning of the quarantine due to COVID-19. Officially self-isolation in Russia was announced on March 30th, but I’ve started working at home from March 16th. It’s been a challenge not to focus on the latest news about the pandemiс and to be inspired by the new reality. I was working on the usual schedule, experimenting with different drawing styles in Procreate, cleaning up my apartment and kept in touch with my friends and relatives online.

April, 2020
It was becoming pretty hard to stay inside for such a long time. And on the first weekend of this month, I moved to my friend’s country house. It gives me the opportunity to change an environment, go outside, and take walks in the woods which is very helpful to get a little bit distracted and inspired while the virus is raging. I have never lived in the countryside for such a long time. When the quarantine is over, maybe I will miss this calm place, fresh air, and nature being a stone's throw away from the house.
Working

Catching up on drawing a few last days in my sketchbook

I cleaned up my laptop and deleted 55 GB of cache, useless programs, and files
Playing the Scrabble

Getting better at jumping rope
This day’s breakfast: smoothie and pancakes

June, 2020
The month has started with prolonged rainfalls and tense news all over the world. I visited my apartment in the city after staying in the countryside for more than 2 months and in 3 days returned back to spend my long-awaited vacation surrounded by nature and clean air. Eventually, there were many more happenings in the second part of the month. I had a long-awaited haircut, met a few friends and new acquaintances. And unexpectedly at the end of the month, I was asked to move out from the apartment where I have been living for 5 years. It was quite stressful but I believe that it's for the best. It’s time for a new phase in many areas of my life.
Small pleasures: my precious MUJI pens have finally arrived
Working on the super long and informative article
Waking up with the sun shining on my pillow
The rain was pouring like from a bucket
It was a long and saturated day

About me and my daily drawing practice

I’m Julia, an illustrator and web designer based in Moscow. Since February 2017, daily I have been drawing everything that happened with me or inspired me during the day. You can see the the beginning of this project in “365 days of daily drawing” on my website. Also, I am now finishing my book “The Wonders of Daily Drawing” which already can be preordered here.
In addition to keeping a Drawing Journal in a sketchbook, on 9 March 2020 I started making digital drawings in Procreate. I post my daily drawings on Instagram and update this page weekly. Be well, inspired and creative! Every day can bring something beautiful if you look closely and really want to see it. Do you have questions or want to collaborate? Please email me on juliazass.contact@gmail.com
