The purpose of a sketch a day is just to do it - sketch! It doesn't matter if it is an involved sketch or if it is a simple contour or gesture drawing. There are no rules except to sketch each day.

Life parameters can dictate the time investment, but a sketch a day commitment is designed to elevate the personal priority of sketching ... to enforce sketching. Making it into a "resolution" validates the activity (invests it with a bit of a challenge even!) and defends against competing demands. The sketch a day is designed for practice - to reinforce basic skills, and to provide daily contemplation on the issues of two dimensional representation.

Several of us are doing a sketch a day, and I would enjoy hearing from anyone else who decides to join in. We share our efforts, support each other, keep each other honest and... hopefully we'll have some fun doing this!

December 14, 2011

    What I decided to do was to use the outline for one object as if it were a "scribble drawing" challenge. Instead of drawing something out of a scribble, I would draw something within the outline, turning it in any direction. 
    After turning the outline onto the side, I chose to draw an imaginary animal since that gives complete freedom to invent. I think this creature looks like a type of dragon and like some of the images of very tiny animals blown up very large - fleas, mites and so on.

  1. These are dragon mites that will attack the dragonlets unless you do somethng preventative quickly! They are very fierce!
