#SketchDaily, illustration

I’ve embarked on a new artistic challenge and that is to do one sketch every single day for 365 days in a row. I don’t care if it’s on a napkin with my eyeliner, SOMETHING must be drawn every day.

The goal of this project is to force myself to be more playful with my artwork and to try and refine a base “style” for myself. For the longest time, since most of my work was for theater and film, my goal was to get great at imitating styles. Which, when you’re trying to recreate life and art, that skill is a must. That being said, I’ve gotten pretty good at mimicking styles and I think it’s time to refine my own. So here’s what I’ve created during my 1st week of the #sketchdaily challenge.

My go-to subject for thisĀ  when I 1st dove in was portraits. They are 100% in my comfort zone. Here’s where I started:

After two days of randomly scrolling through Pinterest for faces to draw I decided to see if there was an official #sketchdaily out there somewhere. And, wouldn’t you know it? There was. On Reddit of course. After realizing that, I joined in on the daily art prompts, and here’s what’s come out of that so far:

If you would like to see these as they come out follow me on Instagram: @jeanetteandromeda.

That’s all for the moment. Have a great day!
