I understand that the title of this post is rather IN YOUR FACE and doesn't make much sense so here's a brief explanation...
Two blogs in TWO days. That's consistency. Hence the fire.
The pencil reference is to do with a 30 day challenge. Yeah - one of THOSE. I'm sure you've all heard of it - it's the 30 day drawing challenge.
I really love to draw. I really love to paint. But I never have the time nor the inspiration. So this is basically a bit of a kick up the arse to myself. I'm hoping that after 30 days of drawing every day it'll just come naturally again.
I'd like to point out at this moment that I am not technically very good at drawing - I just enjoy doing it. So I apologise for clogging up your blog feeds with random ass sketches for the next 30 days.
(I know, I know, you're thinking '30 days? Kiki La Mer blogging 30 days in a row? Every day?' Well I'm gonna try. The word try leaves just the right amount of room for failure =P)
Day 1 of the 30 Day Drawing Challenge is...
1. Draw Yourself.
Well great. This is already a pretty self indulgent blog subject - let's just make it more about ME heh? *Rolls eyes*
I drew myself with a HB graphite pencil and a 4B graphite pencil. I pictured myself wearing my favourite comfy casual outfit whilst sitting at a table with a presumably alcoholic drink in my hand. I'm sure a psychologist would have a lot to say about that.
Anyway - here's the damn picture.
