AAD (Art a Day Project): Week 46

Life sometimes can take precedence over other projects, so the next couple of weeks I consider to be less than stellar. But I drew everyday, whether the final result was good or not.

AAD (Art a Day Project): Week 29

This week I allowed myself the freedom of my comfort zone. I’m used to drawing women, drawing in pen, and drawing in a very detail oriented manner, so instead of stepping outside my box, I decided to stay inside and see what came from it.

Interestingly enough, I ended up with some diary type drawings (things that directly inspired me during the day), and some possible character designs for a graphic novel that I’m plotting.

AAD (Art a Day Project): Week 25

This week I’ve been thinking about what this project has done for me.

It’s been an interesting beast…trying to come up with things to draw everyday.

At first I was relying on other people’s suggestions to get through each day. I still look through suggestions I get, of course, but now I find that I can just generate random ideas based on what I’ve seen or read throughout the week fairly quick and easy.

It’s been a nice side effect that I wasn’t expecting.

I’m almost halfway done with this project and am on my fourth book now. The other three sketch books are filled with art.

Hopefully I’ll be able to be creative for the next twenty-seven weeks.
