My List for Inktober Drawing on YouTube

Create something today like this child's drawing

I did a quick sketch to get my bearings around where each of these should go for Inktober. (It’s on the video.) I tend to layer my drawings starting with what’s in the background and moving to the foreground. I may trace my first drawing and draw the second on the tracing, or I may cut out the second and attach it to the first. You don’t have to do either. This is all about exercising your ability to be creative and to draw. Your finished drawing(s) should look different from mine.

I’m going to do this on YouTube Live. Please join in and take five to 15 minutes out of the day to do something creative.

Drawing is something we all did as children. Our parents hung our drawings on the fridge and tried to guess what they were. Then one day, we realized we could never be professional artists. Maybe someone told us flowers and suns don’t have faces, or our elephant looked like an aardvark, or being an artist is impractical. We put down our crayons and moved on to something more “productive.” In doing so, we gave up a particularly human trait and a tool that could actually make our lives better. Grab your pencil, paper and pens! Let’s draw again for Inktober and remember that the reward is in the creation of something, even if it doesn’t look like what you intended.
