EDM 69 and 105 May 8, 2007

These are some of my daily drawings from the Every Day in May challenge. I will not post them all, but I will definitely make a picture of my larger drawing when it is done. I will keep working on it.


These are also two EDM-challenges, a drink and a pair of scissors (numbers 69 and 105). I still haven’t found a good way to prepare pencil drawings for the blog, changing the contrast and clarity doesn’t help to make them look better.


Where did the fun go? May 7, 2007

The last drawing I posted here was made on a Saturday afternoon. I had done all the chores I had to do, so I figured I should draw. And it really felt like a should, not a want to.

I simply wasn’t fun to do, because I didn’t feel like drawing. I had not drawn anything for a few days, and I felt like I had tot do something. And I wanted it quick and good. I don’t like the drawing because of these reasons. Maybe it doesn’t look that bad, but it has negative feelings attached to it.

What to do now? I need to bring the fun back into drawing.

That is why I joined the Every Day in May Challenge.  I will do something each day, a small drawing in a sketchbook, or a little work on a larger drawing. I hope that with these small steps I will make drawing fun again. And if not, I will quit after a month.
