Today, April the 17th, is the most special day for hundreds of people around the world. What is your special day?
My name is Fernando Luis Lara. I'm a brazilian artist living and working in the US, and I draw the 365 days of the year. In fact, I draw the stories of people who had a very special day on any of the 365 days of the year as part of a conceptual online and offline art project.
The idea is quite simple: you let me know what happened on your special day, and I will draw it. You will get the original drawing (9 x 12 inches = 23 x 31 cm) by mail, and your story and the drawing will be shown on this website. Over time, this website will be a collection of special days all over the world, and remind us just how special each and every day can be.
And by the way: Each day (e.g. October the 31st) will only be drawn once. So if you would like to remind yourself or someone else about your special day in a very special way, check out if your day is still available.
