Daily Drawing Challenge - 31 Things to draw | 1-10

During the month of January I'm doing a Daily Drawing Challenge - 31 Things to draw with themes by the artist Lisa Congdon. I may not be doing them daily, but they are great drawing exercises. They make you draw things that you otherwise wouldn't draw. I choose a Kuretake fine black marker to use during this challenge. In the beginning of the challenge I only use marker, but in the last days that I'm showing today, I started to use some pencil before using the marker. It's the way I feel more comfortable to draw.

1. Tree

2. Teacup

3. Chair

4. Leaf

5. Rose

6. Sneaker

7. Pitcher

8. Cat
I didn't like the simple cats that were suggested to draw. From this sheet this was the only one that I liked.

9. Bird

10. Mushroom

Looking back | Illustration



My first illustration of 2016!

This year I want to focus on creating more illustrations.
Two years ago I tried to draw every day, last year I wanted to create a pattern for each week of the year. I failed both times. Probably because after a certain time I didn't make more time to commit to these challenges. It reached a point that I was so behind that I couldn't be bothered to continue.
So this year I want to make it different. I want to draw something new every weeks of 2016. It can be a scribble, a drawing or a finished illustration. It doesn't matter if it's work or a personal illustration. I just want to draw.
