I started a drawing course on Linked In called the 21 Day Drawing challenge. My purpose in joining this course is to improve my sketching skills. I have seen many blog posts where the writer has enhanced what he or she has written about with contextual sketches, and I think it would be a good idea to do so in my stories. Now, I’m not sure whether or not I’ll achieve my goal with this course but I thought it was worth a shot. The challenge format makes it interesting, and and I thought I would post my day’s sketch every day for that extra shot of motivation!
So here goes….the sketch from Day 1.
Day 1 challenge was simple enough, it was to draw a cat based on your chosen reference image. You could add twists based on your imagination. Mine came out looking a bit snooty, but that’s how most cats I’ve seen appear!
I have been reading voraciously since the age of five when I first discovered the joys of reading. I would lap up anything in print. Unrolling an emptied newspaper cone with one hand, stuffing roasted peanuts in my mouth with the other, all the while devouring the printed content on the cone with my eyes, was one of my first experiences in hedonistic pleasure.
In fact, sometimes I feel that I am on an adventurous journey through the secret dreamworld of other people's imaginations, interspersed with occasional visits to my own life to attend events like graduation, first job, marriage, and so on.
As a true-blue reader, I think I am uniquely qualified to comment on and critique other people's works of labour. I can tell exactly what puts the average reader to sleep, what sets their pulse racing, and what has them salivating for more.
