With the Sketchbook Exchange Program well under way, I’ve been thinking about what’s next. I’m pretty sure I’ll do another round of the swap – it’s too much fun! The wonderful Ms. Hennie Mavis used the swap to ask some thoughtful questions about growing as an artist. Which made me think about where I’d like to grow as an artist.
I love drawing and I have no shortage of ideas. I want to be able to better execute them. I’d like to be more prolific. I’d like to make skateboard graphics for Lance Mountain. I’d like to do the album art for the Scott Joyce Band. For now, I plan to work on drawing – and YOU CAN, TOO!
For every day in 2009, I’m going to do a sketch and/or drawing. I’ve created a group in Flickr called the Daily Sketch Challenge – anyone with flickr account can join in. There are no rules, but here are some guidelines:
- Draw every day. That’s the point.
- If you miss a day or two, don’t sweat it. Just keep going. Make them up.
- There’s no need to post everything you do, but please join in. Please consider using the flickr group.
- It doesn’t matter when you start – just note your anniversary date and jump in!
Happy drawing for the rest of 2008, though 2009 and beyond.
