I’m working on a few small illustrations revolving around reading! They’ll be included in a data visualization project about literacy in Canada, from artistic literacy to financial literacy to media literacy, and everything in between.
It’s a bit of a departure from what I’ve been doing for the past few months, and I’m really enjoying it 🙂
After doing some ftp clean up, I wiped most of my blog by accident! To top it off, the back-up posts file corrupted. I managed to reorganize the blog theme to look as it did before, but I won’t be re-uploading much. I guess it’s time to start over for 2018!
Sketches from Days 1-22 of Drawcember, using the official prompt list!
CG Society and Wacom are hosting a 22-day Drawcember challenge! I’ll be doing a sketch every morning based on a word from Wacom’s prompt list.
I plan to write a retrospective on the importance of community art challenges. I’ve participated in three this year; Artstation’s Beyond Human and Beneath the Waves, as well as Inktober. It’s immensely satisfying to watch a group of stellar artists work through a theme in several different ways.
One thing that makes Artstation’s challenges such a treat is the absence of a contest prize, and instead recognizes the quality of work on its own as the reward.
I’d like to go through Drawcember in a similar way, as a personal daily challenge and a morning warm-up. So let’s start!
The prompt for Day 1 of Drawcember is “Winter!”
