2008- 365 DRAWINGS!!!



Whoo hoo! I did it! Last year's resolution- a drawing a day, 365 days of doodles! (366 days, since it was a leap year, only missed one day due to being very very ill, but I waited to do this drawing so I had an even 365 drawings).

I can't believe I did it- looking back, I really see an improvement, and it's been so refreshing to not only keep a visual journal, but see that I'm finally filling up sketchbooks with my own art again, something that I haven't done since college.

Many thanks go out to all my supporters and readers- i do have to say Special Thanks to
Maddy (my #1 fan!)
Damon (my inspiration and companion in this crazy drawing a day venture)
and shout outs to Ashley , who is starting her OWN drawing a day in 2009!

Also, christy, michael and crystal - I challenge the three of you to join us in 2009! there's still time!

In fact, I challenge all of you artists to join me in 2009 to continue a drawing a day! Lots of people think it's too hard, but it's really not.  There are many more artists like me out there that do a drawing (even painting!) a day

The biggest thing is to draw something- the point is to draw and make it a daily routine. Don't psyche yourself out by trying to make everything a masterpiece, because it can't be. Some days are awesome, some days are going to suck- the point is to do it for yourself, and do it because it's the artistic equivalent of working out.

let me know if you're going to try and do a drawing a day, and I'll add a link to you here!

congrats on drawing for a whole year!
i've enjoyed watching you play around with different styles and mediums. but most importantly, putting pencil & pen on paper and taking a break from the computer.
can't wait to see what you come up with this year!
