For the next 40 days I'm challenging myself to sketch everyday. Drawing used to be a go-to in my spare time, or at any job I worked at (and yes I used the company paper). It was a way to express myself, channel boredom, and eventually something I wanted to make into a career. But the desire to draw is not the problem, it's the fear of not making something amazing every time pencil touches paper.
More and more I've been spending my working and "off" hours on a screen, and I have become perpetually bored. School and home life keeps me busy, yet I know there is time for drawing if I would just put my butt in the chair.
So here is my chance to take action and my purpose is two-fold.
First, I want to release my creativity from ego and self-doubt! Sketching isn't about being perfect, it's about learning and expression. I want to free this part of me that has been viewing art/drawing/design as a job for the last several years and I want the enjoyment back!
I am really looking forward to this challenge because I know it will provide me with more self discipline, freedom, and growth.
I'm an illustrator and graphic designer who is desperate to get back to the basics of pencil and paper! I'm challenging myself to sketch everyday for 40 days in hopes of regaining my overall skill, creativity, and wonder!
