#100daysmagicrealism is an exercise where I drew 100 drawings based on tweets from the @MagicRealismBot twitter account. Sometimes I draw people I know, sometimes it's to draw things I usually don't get a chance to draw. Ultimately, it's a project where I have an opportunity to illustrate outside of the day-to-day product wireframing and whiteboarding.
