365 Days of Pugs

Isabelle in New York City is creating 365 Days of Pugs...

Why did you decide to do this project? My friend Toby did this last year.  While he is inifinitely more artistic and creative than I, I kept thinking about what I would have done instead.  My ideas inevitably involved my pug, Eloise, who is quite a character. I work in a corporate job but studied art history in college and have always been passionate about photography.  My hope was that I would be able to utilize/develop my creative side a bit - and have some fun along the way.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? It has made me more spontaneous and less critical/detail-oriented.  In my career, being meticulious is a necessity.  This project has given me an opportunity to accept that not every effort is going to be successful.  It's also made me look at EVERYTHING with pugs in mind, like Day 177, the Pug Robot.  Finally, and the most surprising, it's exposed me to - literally - a whole world of pug lovers, most of whom are as crazy about their pugs as I am.

What an understanding pug. She's sure to unleash (gulp) all of the creativity needed for this project. Best wishes, Isabelle.
