In an effort to get more practice drawing, get my work ‘out there’ more (wherever there is), and actually update this blog more than semi-annually, I’m announcing my sketch of the week program. It involves me sketching. Weekly.
And more importantly, posting it. Even if I’m not 100% happy. Even if I only had 15 minutes to scribble something that looks vaguely like a dog. I’m sharing whatever I make with the world, so that I can work better, faster, and with the thick, rhino-like hide that’s vital to working as an illustrator / graphic designer.
Take this week’s, for example. I drew Jim Gaffigan in 1.5 hours. I’m not really happy with it. But I’m posting it, and whats more, I’m going to tweet it AT Jim Gaffigan. I welcome the world’s critique! Bring it on!
