Art challenges like Inktober produce a few inks during October, or a few mermaids in May. August brings us the 30 Day drawing challenge. Each day I watch my style evolve and the videos are getting better as well. Tomorrow I’m producing a video for Day 3 of the challenge and will discuss my thoughts on social constructs that no longer exist where I’m from.
What are the goals of 30-day art challenges?
No matter what we do in life, the more we do it, the more we improve. Reality allows us to take steps forward and backward during a learning process of give and take. We push with all we have, dig deep and learn new things, then a force pushes back upon us, challenging us. We are forced to think up new routes and strategize, feeling victorious after overcoming feats of strength, and ultimately producing better work. That will be the only goal of the challenge, better work.
I believe in 30 days steps will be taken in all directions if the challenge is properly explored. I will have discussions about the future, drawing tips from the next 2000 years, supply reviews and projections, random thoughts. Any jokes will be terribly dry and unedited. If there is one thing that will happen in the next 30 days, it’s 30 drawings. That much at least is true. Although, I should have written that on August 1st so it made more sense and actually was true.
