Fancy illustration: 365 sketching project
Can't believe 2013 is nearly upon us. Instead of making a list of new year resolutions that will most likely be forgotten by February, I thought it would be fun to start a 365 project. Growing up, I was one of those kids who didn't care much for toys, give me a piece of paper and some colouring pencils and I could be sitting happy for hours on end. Many decades later, I still love drawing, but don't seem to have much time for it anymore. I don't have much confidence in my ability anymore which is very sad. I still do lots of illustrations, but I believe illustrations are very different to drawings. Drawings to me is about jotting down what you see in front of you at that moment, while illustrations are more planned, more designed.
Well, long story short, for 2013 I have decided to start a sketch a day project. The topic can be anything and the sketch can take as little as 30sec to many hours. I just want to see whether I can get back in the habit of drawing and see whether I can improve my skills in the process.
I will be uploading my drawings weekly so you too can follow my progress. Let me know if you are interested in joining a 365 project. It doesn't have to be about sketching. Maybe photography is more your thing, or cooking... Imagine doing a new recipe each day...
