The Day 15 Challenge was to draw four dinosaurs, a Brontosaurus, a Stegosaurus, a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Pterodactyl, but all within the limitation of three-inch square boxes. The real challenge here was to figure out how to fit their divergent shapes into one common, geometric composition — a square.
I found it easiest to fit the pterodactyl into the square box. The other three had more length than height so I had a bit of trouble fitting them into the boxes while keeping their proportion close enough to be recognizable. Finally, I ended up drawing them with their heads sticking out of the square boxes, sort of like they were looking out of a window. I’m not sure if that was acceptable for this challenge but that was my creative license for this drawing.
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.
