52 Weeks of Drawing

Who’s up for another challenge in 2013? THIS GIRL IS!

(By the way, shout out to my home girl Sarah who is taking on what I consider to be the ultimate challenge- a raw foods diet and a spending fast! She’s doing super awesome too!)

I’m kinda sorta loving my 52 Photos project. Has it only been 2 weeks? Sure. Isn’t that hardly enough time to tell if you are committed to something? Probably. Who cares?! Let’s do some more.

Another blog I really love is The Paper Mama. And when I was lurking (a Rachel term) recently, I came across this:

So let me say this-I’m not a particularly gifted artist. In fact, I’m pretty mediocre  I have decent penmanship. So I’m not doing this challenge because drawing is an actual skill I have. I just really adore hand drawn illustrations. The likelihood that I’ll fall in love with your blog increases 10 fold if you include hand drawn illustrations (your own or someone else’s.)

So I’m doing this challenge because I like to draw and I want to get better. I want to be an illustration whizz kid. And I’m really excited about it. Also, it will give me something else to look forward to other than taking a photo of myself once a week!

I’ll be using Chelsey’s hastag #PM52weeks when I post, as well as my own #52drawings (ya know, like #52photos).

I’m already a week behind, so I’ll be posting two drawings this week, my first today and the second tomorrow. So without further delay, here’s my first drawing for week one:

This is my “My Choice” drawing. I saw a Valentine with a hedgehog on it on Pinterest, and I decided I would try my hand at a hedgehog. It’s sitting on an ottoman. (In case you couldn’t tell.)
