I’ve decided to embark on a quest of ‘Projects’; that is to say, classifying everything I want to do as a Project and hence multiplying its importance, specialness, satisfaction when complete and motivatability. I love starting projects, but I’m not so good at finishing them, so this’ll be a good chance to change my ways and achieve some stuff while I’m at it.
And thus, my first and most easily started Project is the ‘A Sketch A Day’ Project; self-explanatory I’d guess, basically a way of forcing me to do art everyday and improve consistently. It’ll also make me more observant of my surroundings and of people’s nuances, so look forward to caricatures and fun, in-lecture, draw-someone-without-them-seeing-you-and-thinking-you’re-madly-in-love-with-them challenges.
I’ll be using fineliner, Biro, fountain pen, pencil and sketchbook paper mostly, but don’t be surprised if you see some maths or economics notes mercilessly defaced with stress relief doodles.
Hopefully I can make this a habit and have this Project last indefinitely, or at least a year. To end, I have Day 1’s Sketch: a quick continuous line drawing of my workplace (I’m in my room and there’s nothing interesting to draw). I don’t have a scanner convenient on hand, so make do with Instagram for now, okay?
