365 Days of Creativity

I given myself a challenge. My goal is to complete a consistent 365 days of creativity. Using my iPhone, I am documenting my progress in an app called Photo365. I started this challenge on July 12th and so far I have not broken the chain. Not every attempt has been a success but there was technically success in the fact that I did do something creative.

I allowed the parameters to be anything from a quick doodle or a sketch/painting in my sketchbook to creatively playing with my iPhone camera apps to make an interesting picture. My formal pencil drawings are counted as separate from this playtime.

I am truly enjoying the process and find myself constantly on the lookout for one more thing to draw or paint. Although, I guess I do that anyhow so this has just further enabled the obsession. I am actually finding myself gravitating more  to my sketchbooks than I am the drawing I am working on sitting on  my drawing board. I sense a change in my larger “project” work may be on the horizon. For the moment though I am going to play my way through as many sketchbooks as I can and I have a feeling that at the end of these 365 days I will have a much clearer direction on that thought.

Here are some of my recent sketches…

  1. I’ll follow your progress on my RSS reader. I like having something to check out every day like a favorite newspaper but your art will be more inspiring. the side of the house with the flowers got my attention.

  2. Thanks everyone!

    Stew: my more formal drawings take me forever as well. These sketches help me with keeping fresh and spontaneous. You should give them a try. It’s also good for hand-eye coordination. 🙂
