“Take a timeout; turn off your telephone, turn off your television and tune into yourself! Pick up a leaf and sketch it; go outside and draw a tree trunk! Stay inside and scribble, cross hatch, draw tornadoes or triangles. After ten minutes, you’ll find a shift in attention. Don’t stop, keep drawing, and your creative side will awaken. Consider this an exercise! Your lines will get softer, more expressive, and your pulse slows!”
I must admit, I have got out of the habit of drawing regularly, I tend to go through phases and although at the moment I keep thinking about putting pen/pencil to paper I just have not got round to committing myself recently so I am hoping that by joining this even it will kick start me back into drawing again.
Whether I can sustain every week, is another thing, therefore I am going to aim for every fortnight and if I can manage every week then it can only be a bonus! I will be posting the results here on this blog. Hopefully I will eventually need to create a page for the work I create for the event!
In the meantime here is a fairly recent rockabilly inspired skull drawing I created using felt tips.
