While visiting with Jill after Christmas, we started talking about how we would both like to draw more. One of the challenges of doing anything consistently is the lack of accountability. If you know you have a deadline, then you are more apt to get something done. Also, working in a vacuum and not having any feedback makes it easier to slack off and not do the things you want to do, but never seem to find time for.
As an answer to this, we decided to create a challenge for ourselves for 2011. We are starting a drawing blog and will have assignments each week. Using 642 Things To Draw as our inspiration and our source book, we will select a subject at random and it will be used as the subject of that week’s drawing.
So, Dave, Jill and I will be drawing at least once per week. We have invited others to join in, but no invitation is necessary. If you want to join us, simply go to our blog at 52in2011.wordpress.com and sign up. Use the “Join Us” form to send me an email and I’ll send you an invitation. The more the merrier.
If you are shy about drawing, please don’t be. We all drew as children and loved it. It doesn’t matter how well you do it, as long as you are having fun. You can even choose a pseudonym so you can post anonymously.
