Starting the EDM Challenge


3x5" index card divider, slicci pen

While the girls were in the pool I drew my favorite {albeit falling-apart} beach sandals.

Starting. I am starting. Because I want to learn how to draw better lines, better curves, how to cross-hatch and shade with purpose. I want to start a daily drawing habit. Yes, I have a well entrenched daily doodling addiction habit. But drawing REAL STUFF is more of a deep challenge for me. I love Danny Gregory's style and his line work, and it inspires me to draw MORE STUFF. And so if you want to join in, you can read about The EDM Challenge at Danny's blog and find out about the flickr group and facebook stuff too. You might see some line art from Sophie of Miss KoolAid and Amy of The Creative Mom Podcast as well, as they have inspired me to start. The EDM Challenge is named after the Everyday Matters book by Danny Gregory.

I have been contemplating starting as well. I am in the FB group and seeing Danny's and other participants drawings has been quite inspiring. I'm terrible with follow through so I don't know how far I would get.

Roz Stendahl inspired me to start trying to draw last year. She is a wonderful painter who has kept a visual journal since she was very young and encourages everyone to take note of the world around them by sketching/painting. If finally dawned on me that I might actually get better if I just did it, rather than waiting for the skill to bloom overnight like a moonflower. I may not be improving, but I sure am enjoying myself. What a good challenge to participate in. You have lovely shoes, by the way.

It felt like ages since I decided to check it out, until I started it, but now I see it was only three days! Not too bad then.
