30 Day Drawing Challenge

Photobucket
I stumbled upon the 30 Day Drawing Challenge on Pinterest and, unlike most of the things I find on Pinterest, this looks like something I'd actually like to accomplish. What I like about this one is that the assignments are fairly straightforward, but could be interpreted in the abstract as well, which works for me. Since it's the start of a new month, I plan to pick up a fresh sketchbook this afternoon and get drawing. It's been far too long since I actually tried to draw anything, so I don't expect much, but you have to start somewhere, right? If I'm not too embarrassed with the final product, I'll plan to share everything on here at the end of the month. Anyone interested in joining? Let me know!

This looks really fun, and right up my alley. I don't consider myself a very good artist, but I do love drawing, doodling, and painting for fun. I'll join you! I'll let you know if I post a drawing, if you would like to see.

Ooh I think I might do this too! I make my living selling my illustrations but it seems like I can never find the time or inspiration to create new drawings anymore, so this should be fun! :D

Bethany said...

This is a good idea, since I lack inspiration lately.

I saw it too, and was planning on carrying it out too - sounds like a great source of inspiration!

This sounds really fun! Especially because I love to draw, but I usually don't know what to draw. But this solves things!

This is cool! I'd love to repeat it maybe every month but with a different theme. Like, January I would do all thirty drawings in an abstract way, or all in charcoal or whatever. This is fun, I'm going to *try* to accomplish this!

I can't wait to see your drawings! I'm participating in a photo a day challenge for the first time and will be posting that at the end of the month on my blog!

i love sketching and doodling, but am pretty awful. nevertheless, i have some quite lofty plans to illustrate and write a book for my niece for christmas.

since writing is more my speed, i always do the poem a day challenge for national poetry month in april.... actually a lot harder than it sounds. so, props, and i hope to see your final work!
