100 Days of Drawing People

the challenge

About 3 years ago I had an interest to draw. In order to challenge myself to build on my skills, and my fears of sharing my projects, I participated in The 100 Day Project. The 100 Day Project was integral to building my style and drawing practice.

the solution

I decided I’d draw my favorite thing: people. That was the only rule I had. I could draw with whatever I wanted. I could draw anyone I wanted to. I could draw parts of people, or groups of people. #100DaysOfDrawingPeople began.

The thing that has surprised me the most about the project: I’m now part of a creative community. After I posted my daily drawing I’d go to #the100dayproject hashtag to see what other people were doing. I started to like a bunch of posts. Then others started to like mine. We all started communicating with each other.

These drawings taught me to loosen up, to practice drawing daily, and not to be afraid to share what I love doing. Learn more about my experiences with the project reading my blog post The World Needs Your Creativity.

 

Client Kudos

In the past I’ve often experienced delays from well-meaning, yet
over-promising designers. Maria produced quality artwork AND was ahead
of schedule—not a minor combination in this world. I wouldn’t hesitate to
work with her again and I hope to have that chance soon.
