My name is Matt Alden Brown and I am a college senior at Western Illinois University.

Last Christmas, I was gifted a Bamboo Splash electronic drawing tablet. I put it to use right away and began drawing simple, yet entertaining illustrations.

I decided to try and break my art anxieties, having had the art equivalent of “writer’s block” for some time, by starting a project where I would draw one illustration a day for a year.

This website serves as external reinforcement and illustrates my effort toward achieving the goal.

Every day, until next Christmas, I will create one illustration and post it on this site for others to enjoy.
