Drawing a day challenge – Jan 2020

Hello there, it’s been awhile. Starting 2020 I’ve mentally signed myself up to the drawing a day challenge, a hash-tag on Twitter and Instagram. My life situation currently means it is difficult for me to have regular dedicated creative time to progress the many projects whirling around my mind! I am still working on my Five English Owls linocut series, 2 owls to go. I’m working on finalising the design for my Short-eared Owl.

Meanwhile, I felt that if I was drawing everyday, then it would keep the creative juices flowing and help me explore image making. I’m not someone who in my art life draws every day, I tend to ‘make’ when I am progressing projects, when inspiration strikes or I get the art jitters and need a fix. I operate more on a weekly basis.

In January I completed only 13 drawings out of 31 days. Seems terrible? But actually if I hadn’t taken up the challenge, it probably would have been less! Like any resolution, I’m not beating myself up about what I didn’t do, rather I am focusing on what I did achieve. So here are my favourite drawings from January. I am posting every drawing I do on my Instagram @catpigeons
