  • following on from some posts in the what are you currently making thread, it was suggested, (by the lovely vampira!) that the drawings have a thread of their own for the people who want to do one a day, (inspired by starpoi!)


    so here's today's drawing from me.......




    i am going to try and do one line drawing a day and would really like to see other people's "one drawing a day" as well. :D


    i would also like people to kick me up the arse if i don't do it because i would love to get back into drawing but i am very lazy!

  • any drawing. it was beth's idea to do a drawing a day, like a journal, so i guess it's kind of following on from that idea. hence the grampabones hat on his birthday.

  • Yey!
    My journal isn't a diary. It's not what I did that day etc. It's just an arty journal with pictures and writing. I'm not very good at writing so that bit scares me most!




  • Ooh if anyone wants to really get into the arty journalling kind of thing, these are the books that have really inspired me.



  • i think i am going to add writing to my next ones coz i really like the combination of picture and writing. it will give me a chance to practise my calligraphy as well which is also something i am wanting to get back in to.

    do it. here's your perfect excuse coz if you're joining us and doing one a day you will get good so much quicker if you do it regularly rather than sporadically.

  • i'm defo goona try this, might not be one a day though as i have mountains of college work as it is, but at least once a week :)


  • i decided it would be nice to do something today, so i had a shower ~ very hard work at the moment so i am mostly smelly, but at least now its a nice kind of smelly... got out the shower and thought id do a scribble, 10 minute jobby... it was so much fun, i really must carry on having fun with my art, this is a big step! so thankyou very very much for the inspiration everyone xxxxxxxxx :D

  • What a great idea - I can't draw to save my life but I'll enjoy looking at everyone else's efforts.........:insane:

  • Oooh that is great Kel! I love it!
    Totally get it too! I haven't washed my hair for ages, just can't cope with the mammoth task that it now is!

  • What a great idea - I can't draw to save my life but I'll enjoy looking at everyone else's efforts.........:insane:


    it's not about whether or not you can draw, it's about being motivated to do something creative each day. and if you did a drawing every day then before long you would be good at it.


    and kel - i love your drawing - i can so totally relate to that! well, apart from we don't have a shower and i don't wash my hair. for precisely the reason's you've just drawn!!! :D

    I'm trying to keep things small and simplish to start with and work my way up to drawing people and cats :D


  • so here's today's drawing from me.......


    Wow that is really good!


    Erm, I mean that in a "I didnt know you could draw" way, not a "I didnt know you could do anything" :D
