Challenge: Draw One Thing a Day

October 3, 2012

I’ve been feeling a little lackluster in the creativity department lately. It’s hard to find the time to complete (or even start) so many of the projects I have floating around in my head. I love drawing and hand lettering, so I proposed a challenge to myself: Draw one thing everyday. It doesn’t matter what or if it’s good – just draw. And that’s just what I’m going to do. Starting today, I’ll be posting a drawing a day on Instagram (follow me @loveandcupcakesblog) and Facebook (Like me!). And if you want, I’d love for you to join me! Simply tag #loveandcupcakesdrawingaday (long hashtag, I know!!) on Instagram or upload your photo to the love+cupcakes FB page. Feel free to leave me comments or suggestions. My goal with this exercise is to become a better illustrator. So, what do you say? Let’s better our drawing skills together!

    I think this is an excellent idea – plus who doesn’t love calligraphy?

    Ahh I’ve been trying to do this for a little while now! It’s good fun :) When I was doing my art degree, we were told to do 3-5 small quick sketches a day. It’s surprising how much your art improves with little things like that.

      Awesome! It’s encouraging to hear that. I hope I can work my way up to 3-5 sketches, so far finding the time to make 1 has been a challenge all its own :)
