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…
