Let’s get down to some actual drawing. This video is a trick for turning lousy drawings into a cool piece of art. It’s all about the power of more, how a page of even mediocre drawings gains power and beauty as you add more drawings. And this approach is so fast and simple, taking just a minute each — a minute you can fit in, no matter how busy your day. Just make sure you keep that workbook handy for when the moment strikes.
This week is all about finding triggers that will help make drawing into a regular part of your day, building new patterns and habit to make you more creative and productive. It’s also about why you should bother— why do you want to be creative? What are your goals and aspirations?
I am really enjoying poodling along in my workbook. The paper is hefty, the size is just right. And I’m having fun making these simple little videos — no SBS level production value, just me, my iPhone, my kitchen, workbook, and pen.
It’s funny being taught by myself. I thought about all of these exercises a lot when I wrote the book and its predecessor but, with the distance of time, I am now able to dig into each assignment as if for the first time.
But enough about me.
I hope you are working alongside me and filling in the pages of your workbook too. And if you don’t have one yet, it’s not too late to enter for the giveaway. Just email your name to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pop it in the hat. I’ll be drawing names at my Facebook Live thingee on Saturday.
