The discipline of drawing every day

Oct 28, 2009

It's a universal understanding that if we want to master a skill, we need to commit to practicing it as much as we can.  Drawing is no exception.  Although I do believe that some folks have an aptitude for the arts, drawing is essentially a learned skill like playing basketball, piano, or cooking. 

The most difficult part of drawing every day is not the act itself but the discipline. So when I came across Lauren Nassef's blog on drawing a picture every day, I was inspired by her dedication to her art.  Committed to this project for two years now, her blog is rich with eye-catching illustrations.  Most of her drawings are of people, detailing their expressions and poses with fine lines.  I love how some of the drawings are unfinished- a beautiful reminder that drawing is as much about the process as it is about the end product. 

Here's a sampling of some of Lauren's works.
