Project Draw Again

9 Oct

For years my brother has been working on an incredible story where I won’t and can’t give away more details than what the drawings will portray.  He is bursting with creativity and ideas. For a while, I was doing illustrations for him, but always hid them away in shame because they were never “perfect”.  Well I am done with that stigma because all it has done is paralyze me and prevent me from doing NOTHING at all.  Back to the drawing board, literally.

These drawings are from 2009, let’s see what I can have done by the end of this week.

Taking a break today from HDTE (Hand Drawn Text Exploration) in favor of doing some tutorials.  I adore Chris Spooner’s tutorials over at Blog Spoon Graphics.

Today, I decided to follow the below listed tutorials to make some pretty friggin awesome art.  Also, I am sorry, I have been fascinated by this quote, in fact, quite driven by it.  I’ll stop using it in further pieces, I promise 😉

After I completed the tutorial, I decided that I wanted to brighten this one up a bit, inspired by the newly fallen snow here in Minnesota.

I found the following quote while listening to Where is my Mind? by Yoav on Youtube.  It was (and currently may still be?) the top comment.

Quote: “If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders.”

HDTE: Hand Drawn Text Exploration

A quick search for hand drawn text/typography/fonts produced some inspiring results.  It is something I have always wanted to improve on and get good at.  I will be trying several different things over the next couple days. Just a fair warning, I love, love, love lyrics and quotes so I will be drawing most, if not all of my inspiration from quotes and lyrics.

Starting on the 2nd

That’s right, I am starting this blog on the 2nd of the month because I’m Cheeky.  My goal is to have a post for every single day from now on.  (See Update on May 14, 2013) It may or may not be on the day that it is for or maybe the post will be an accumulation of past days and be a gigantic mega-post. In my opinion, it still counts as long as it all adds up in the end 😉
So here is Day 1 – It begins.
