Elise from A Beautiful Mess recently wrote about her new 365 project, and how some of the projects she's done before have changed her life. I've heard the same thoughts about projects like that before, so I've decided to tackle one.
Seeing that one of my resolutions this year is to do more art, I've decided that I need to sketch way more than I have been. Not want, need. I've described sketching as taking a deep breath before... it's relaxing, it opens my mind.
So my goal is to draw every day. It doesn't have to be anything complicated, and it doesn't have to be finished... ever. The aim of this project is to get my creative juices flowing, to force myself to sit down with a paper and pencil. To make art a part of my daily life again.
I've been doing well so far, I've just got to keep the momentum going. So I propose a toast. Here's to way more graphite covered hands, doodle-covered napkins, and characters that eventually take on a life of their own. :]
