#28toMake Day 9 - Scribbles & Shapes
Today we had to use a random scribble to inspire a sketch. I am no stranger to this exercise, it's something I have played at before just when doodling in boring meetings in my past life. I did this exercise twice today, The first time I drew my own scribble (with my eyes shut, of course) which resulted in a puppy with a space rocket and designer sunnies. I really wanted to try with someone else's scribble though, so later I was able to get hold of one and for some reason another tailed creature emerged, this time a cross between a mouse and a cat. Is it any wonder I am the dog person and he is the cat person? Do our scribbles actually bare our souls???.

#28toMake Day 6 - Mad Lib People Watching
First I had to google Mad Lib, I'd never heard of that before. Then I had to go to Home Depot. This is the result, which in retrospect has the adverb and the verb arse backward, oops.

#28toMake. Day 2 - House Plant
I don't have house plants because I kill them. I did recently make a bunch of flowers out of cupcake cases though. And there is a jungle outside my window, fighting to get in through the glass. So I imagined it suceeded...

Drawing is not my strong suit, but mainly because I don't practice it at all. Already, day two and I feel like my drawing skills have improved since yesterday. Baby steps!

#28toMake Day 8 - Filling 30 Circles
I switched gears today. Last week's drawing was all about copying things I could see. Today I decided to make things harder for myself by trying to draw from memory only, not using things I could see (although I did cheat on that and copy the sand dollar on the window sill at one point). Also I made myself draw in ink, something I never do so I couldn't erase the mistakes. I also am not so familiar with the behaviour of these pens, they bleed a lot and I was losing the fine detail I can achieve with a pencil. It was fun! I might like to revisit this exercise some time in the future when brainstorming, I usually brainstorm with words not pictures.

#28toMake Day 5 - A receipt
The first receipt I came across today was a parking receipt from a couple of days ago, sitting on the dashboard of my car.

#28toMake Day 4 - Something in your bag
Pretty much all my bags are empty. I pick a bag on a need to use basis and fill it with the things necessary for whatever type of trip the bag is accompanying me on. The last time I used a bag was yesterday, it went with me to pick up my new computer glasses. I am happy that now everything looks a little bit larger and sharper on screen than it did the day before .

#28toMake. Day 3 - Album Cover
Today I feel a bit like losing patience with the creative pursuit of drawing. I can't get this right or do it justice in 20 minutes and I don't have the time or patience or inclination to persist and get it to how it deserves to be. I don't really find it so much fun to copy other peoples' art verbatim. It was more fun for me back when I was inspired to ice an Ashes to Ashes Bowie on my Birthday cake 32 years ago (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10208728861323995&set=a.1097397480241.2016945.1385752424&type=3&theater). At least then I could physically consume my teenage heart throb thereafter. Being prescribed to draw him again now. after he really is ashes, will never feel as good as creating that cake did back then.

+Chase Jarvis thanks Chase. It's interesting to see my own reactions to the different challenges and working out why some seem to suit me more than others. It's informing me about my creative strengths, and reiterating what I believe is my personal vision. I am having a blast doing this, thanks so much for providing the tools for us to engage with in our creative communities, even those communities out in the wings and not in the mainstream, like over here on G+. I really appreciate that you visited us here. Thank you.
