One Week 100 People - Symposium Prep Edition

Well that sure was fun! I sketched 86 people, so I didn't make it to 100, but that is 26 more than I did during the last challenge in March!

During this challenge I was reminded how important it is for me to make time to sketch, instead of waiting for when I have time. This sketch was done one morning before work. I parked and looked up and there were all these people walking into work. So I sketched them!

And that's something that is so great about sketching - when you are in it, you pay more attention to the world around you than you would otherwise.

This was a good way to prepare for the Symposium, too. I get out of the habit of sketching every day, so this helped me to get back into it.

I get out of that habit because I would just be sketching every day things. But this exercise helped me to see/remember that the everyday stuff is worth paying attention to and remembering.

One Week 100 Cars would be a very easy challenge for me.

In the end this reminded me how much I enjoy sketching people, especially with my fat pen.

Now I'm all ready for the Symposium next week!
