a Drawing a Day

posted on: 1.06.2015

As some of you may have seen I have been posting drawings onto a new instagram account called @idrawskies. I created this account along with a corresponding tumblr to document a large art project I have been working on as of 1.1.15. Through this project I have challenged myself to complete a drawing of the sky everyday. The key factor to this project is that each drawing corresponds with the sky that occurred that day, as I saw it that is. These are not images of random pretty sunsets or horizon lines, my project is a chronological documentation of the atmosphere. Now I do expect that at some point drawing every day may become problematic, who knows what could happen, but that's the beauty of hand held devices. At the very least I will document the sky I as I saw it everyday for a year and then draw it, even if it happens the day after. Sounds like a lot, right? Yeah I know it's a bit overwhelming to me as well, but so far I have really enjoyed this and the positive feed back I have received.

So if you like art so the sky follow me on instagram or tumblr, I would so appreciate it! For those of you who have already been flooding my social media accounts with support and encouragement, thank you, you all mean the world to me!

*PS: Apologies for the somewhat blurry images, these are iPhone photos after all.

  16. That's such a unique idea! You will have a great collection of drawings at the end of the year! I love using chalk.. but I'm a perfectionist so I couldn't do one everyday.. It would take me a week or two.

  17. So excited to see other creatives committing to projects like that! I myself started a similar project in 2015, called 365 faces of love, where I do an illustration every day that symbolizes love in some shape or form. I share you concerns, though: Will I be able to commit for the whole year? It's definitely a challenge, so I am rooting for you. Hoping over to instagram to follow your journey. :-)
