30 Day Drawing Challenge: Week 2

Day 7: Candy

Day 7: Candy

I am two weeks in to my self imposed drawing challenge and I have to say, it is a lot more fun than I thought it would be! I expected to find myself making excuses not to draw, or simply getting bored, but neither has happened. Instead I wake up excited for the next day’s challenge. I don’t feel pressure to make each picture perfect, I just try to have fun creating something new each day.

Some of the topics have been more challenging than others. This week I had to draw “a  turning point your life” and “Your most recent accomplishment”. I had no idea how to illustrate such abstract  concepts.

My life changed when I moved to Prague, but how do I illustrate that? My most recent accomplishment was having my a blog post go viral and get mentioned on a local drive time radio station. Sure, it was because the people of Austin Texas were pissed off, but who the heck cares? I’ll take it! How do I illustrate that?

I decided to draw an Indiana Jones style map journey. You know, the kind with the red arrow that moves across the map to show an air journey? I drew tiny icons of California and Prague to identify each place, and I made sure to emphasize the fact that Prague is land locked. I think the idea got across alright.

One of my Bucket List goals has always been to “Mess with Texas”. So it made perfect sense to take the iconic sign and say that I did. The fact that it was unintentional is just icing on the cake.

Next week’s topics include a doodle, a comic and a plant! See you then.
