I realised on the weekend that I joined Every Day Matters a few weeks after Easter a few years ago… In fact it was only TWO years ago – can you believe it!
And Easter must have been early that year… So I am a few weeks late…but still… It is worth a pause…. as joining EDM has made such a HUGE impact on my sketching!
So to celebrate joining EDM and starting to share my sketches with the world I have re-visited the first EDM challenge that I did.
Here is the first version.
I felt a little bit of pressure that this sketch had to be be so much better than the first!
Whether it is better or not I’ll leave to your own assessment but there are differences! One is that I no longer care so much if the sketch comes out perfectly (because I know that my circles will never be perfect) and the other is that I feel the need all the time to design the page. (Back then I wasn’t so obsessed with boxes around everything!). But most importantly, because now I don’t worry about perfection so much and I develop the whole page not just the single sketch, I have heaps MORE fun!!
Anyway – a big thanks to everyone who has done so much to inspire and encourage me for the last two years – for all your comments and for all those that come to visit and never comment – thanks for lookingz1 I often wonder who you are but I know that each view number is a real person who is interested enough to look at my ‘scribbles” So thanks….
