a.4There are a gazillion blogs out there.  I’ll be honest, the vast majority are not very interesting (ahem) and just fade into the sphere.  But every now and then we stumble on to one that fit’s the Lost Cowboy sensibility perfectly.  Such is the case with the Collection a Day blog that Sophie passed along recently.

This is great!  The Collection a Day project is the work of San Francisco artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon.  As she describes the site: “This is a blog documenting a project that will span exactly one year, from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. On each of those 365 days, I will photograph or draw (and occasionally paint) one collection. Most of the collections are real and exist in my home or studio; those I will photograph. Some are imagined; those I will draw or (occasionally) paint. Since I was a young girl, I have been obsessed both with collecting and with arranging, organizing and displaying my collections. This is my attempt to document my collections, both the real and the imagined.”

The result was a quirky, cool and just plain remarkable blog that is fun to look through.  Looking around the Lost Cowboy office, we think we could do something similar, but it take a certain aesthetic, talent and discipline to pull off what Ms. Congdon has down and we salute her.
