It's hard to believe how quickly my summer has flown. It's been a busy one and needless to say, challenging on several levels ~ for the most part, all the challenges have been growing experiences so I can't really complain.
On a lighter note, I've decided to go on a 30-day drawing marathon per Steve Pavlina
style. I keep telling myself that I need to start drawing again and although I've started a figure drawing class, I need to just start making marks on paper again. I'm hoping this marathon will jump-start this habit and that it will stick.
Day 1 is also my very first entry to Illustration Friday's
website. This week's theme is Infinite
. And here is my entry:
One of my biggest challenges is my roadblock to drawing from my imagination. I love to draw, but I've only drawn from life. This is the first time that I have made marks on paper, at least since I was 10, without allowing my self-criticism to get the best of me. The criticism is still there but I won't allow it to stop me from just playing. That's all this is really. Just playing.
