April 27, 2008 21 Day Creative Exercise Day 1
This is my first entry for a creative exercise I read about over at Alicia Padrón's blog, but it was started by Gina Perry. The premise is it takes twenty one days of doing something each day for at least fifteen minutes, to form a habit. I already sketch every day, but I need more variety in what I draw. I draw tons of characters and for the most part they are just standing there. So... my challenge is to spend at least 15 minutes each morning drawing only verbs. Whatever characters I draw, animals objects or people, they have to be engaged in some sort of activity.
Today's verb was eating. I may use that one again, as I had several ideas. I only managed to get two characters drawn in the fifteen minutes though. I cheated and did the cereal boy in color, taking a lot longer than fifteen minutes, but with those striped pajamas he looked too much like a convict eating cereal, so I just had to.
