Day 4 of the One Week 100 People. I think I am at 100. Loose gestures is all I had the focus for in a week with so much going on outside of sketching. Sketched these this morning while waiting at the orthodontist’s office.
I’m pleased that for the most part, I put away my favorite sketching tools this week: not much color used in this set of 100 and I only used my brushpen and Sailor Fude nib pen on one day. This is something I want to do more often: take a break from a favorite brush or pen and just draw with a very basic tool. It exposes my drawing in a more barebones sort of way and makes me work on aspects of it that might get covered up by a tool I use well.
It’s not the end of the week yet, so if you have a ways to go, you still have time. Remember, you don’t have to work form life. Magazines, video, photographs, TV are all great sources of inspiration.
