With all of these college projects on at the moment (we've got like, 6 things to worry about)- I've been trying to set myself some time in the evenings for fun things. The other night, I made a series of post-it note drawings.I did these completely from my head- pulling attributes from people I'd seen during the day. And trying to keep it as much of a continuous line as possible. Although- I really didn't want any rules. Just funsies.Then the next day, I did these- drawing directly from life.I think the thing that makes these easy and fun for me- is that I'm not worrying about making that person look 'pretty'- I'm just practising lines and shapes and connections.
To do this yourself- all you need is a stack of post-it notes, a pencil (or pen or crayon! anything!) and an imagination!! Try starting with the nose and eyebrows, building in the eyes, mouth, jaw, and then hair. Be free and let the pencil wander!
