Sometimes I get in a rut creatively and need a spark and since fall is my second favorite season (after spring) I decided to challenge myself to sketching something every day for one month. And since my shop is on vacation while I wait for my third baby to arrive so I figured the timing couldn't be better - other than having a baby at some point in the month.
I wrote up a quick list of daily prompts to make it easy on myself. Each day has a word. Each day something different to draw.
I shared my list on instagram inviting others to join in the fun. In part because I need the accountability and in part because a lot of people ask how to get started drawing or lettering and I thought it would be a good nudge to get people to just start!
You can join in too and share your daily sketches with the hashtag #sketchadaywithLRZ
Here's the list for the month:
- "fall y'all"
- "warm & cozy"
- "old truck"
- "sweater weather"
- hot cocoa
- "trick or treat"
Last but not least! I turned my day 3 sketch, "it's fall y'all," into a printable for you to color!
Here's the link for the free download: it's fall y'all. I'd love to see how you color it so make sure you tag me (@lesleyzellers) if you end up posting it on instagram!!!
I'm also going to attempt to keep all my sketches updated on my flickr album "october sketch-a-day." Lofty goals. Lofty. Goals.
