a couple of days ago on Instagram (I’m here) I posted a pic of my newly bought sketchbook and asked what people think about sketching daily and about keeping a sketchbook. I find it quite difficult to get motivated each day and especially difficult to keep a sketchbook. What happens all the time is me drawing/printing/painting on all kinds of papers I find around, my problem with that in that way my sketches don’t really follow a logical line/progress (and I can’t find anything!).
One issue with keeping a sketchbook has to do with motivation. Another one has to do with the fear of showing not-so-perfect sketches.
So I was thinking that maybe if we can work together we might find ourselves accountable to do more sketches and we might find a way to be less scared of the not-so-perfect. Maybe we could ask for help, share tips and share progress or the lack of it. I would love to work on this with other people who have difficulties in keeping a sketchbook or who needs a bit of encouragement. I would like to start a project on instagram and twitter using the hashtag #dailysketchbookgroup. If you want to take part just grab a sketchbook and start using it, post a pic (adding the tag) and write a caption with questions, tips or whatever you want to share in that moment. You don’t need to post everyday, but maybe it could help. I see this as a help group and I really hope it can be useful for many of us.
I would also like to share some tips from people taking part in the project over here on my journal (giving credit).
Let me know in the comments what you think about this project! thank you x
