Did you have fun coloring last week?
I hope so. I did. I hope you keep at it. Don’t stop coloring! I intend to do a little every week, just like the doodling and other things. I intend to spend more time doing lots of things like this to keep myself inspired. It helps me get unstuck, and helps me come up with new ideas — does it do that for you?
I’m going to find this week’s task a bit more difficult, but I’m up for the challenge, and I hope you are, too:
Choose something you’d like to illustrate, and do it four times, each time doing something different with it. Notice I did not say “draw”, because you can do this any way you want to. You can use a computer, you can use paint, you can use dimensional materials, whatever you want, to illustrate your chosen object.
Furthermore, you can interpret the word “illustrate” as loosely as you want to, and create your chosen object out of other materials as well. It’s completely open and up to you what you do with this assignment!
I’m choosing something that is inherently difficult for me. I want to prove to myself that it’s not as daunting as my mind has led me to believe.
I’ve chosen to illustrate a tree.
My first illustration is with a Sharpie pen and a few colored Sharpies on paper:
This one is inspiring more ideas for the others as I work on it. I may even end up with more than four!
What object will YOU choose to illustrate? I’m so excited to see!
