So I’ve been an artist pretty much my whole life. Drawing, painting, sketching, ruining, breaking you name it. I was doing it. But over the last 3 or 4 years my artist side of my life has really faded into the distance. I don’t want to lose my chops so I’ve decided to create a project for myself.
The project is called SKETCH. The plan is I’m going to sketch “something” for 5 minutes everyday for 30 days. And from there I’m going to take a photo of the sketch, upload it, and then combine them all into a photobook. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons. 1…I’m a big believer of use it or lose it. And I feel like I might be losing some of it. So I want to get a little crisper as an artist. 2…I just want to feel creative again.Â Doing corporate work day in and day out can really get to me. And doing this…even for 5 minutes…makes me feel creative again. Who knows…maybe it’ll make my corporate work even better.
So above is the first sketch from the project…next to my phone counting down the time. And below is a little closer view. Let me know what you think of the idea, and be sure to check back daily for my updates.
Wish me luck.
