Daily Challenge – 2 Weeks In

Hi guys. I’ve decided this daily challenge update is going to be a weekly thing. It’s been a strange gloomy week.

I think this guy is done. I'm envious of him. He's so peculiar and owns it. Lately I've been haunted by my insecurity that I can't pick up on things that everyone else around me can see instantly. It's easy to feel silly and insufficient. Such a shame though, because I think seeing things differently is supposed to be wonderful. That's how I feel when observing others. Yet to me, it only ever makes me feel small. Why am I unkind to myself? I shouldn't be. You shouldn't be. I'm going to try and stay positive. One day, maybe I will look back in wonderment, how I ever thought this was something to be ashamed of. • • • #art #instaart #artoftheday #doodle #ink #inkdrawing #artistsoninstagram #drawing #draw #artdaily #dailyart

A lot of artists say they can translate their negative feelings into a creative process and I think a little bit of gloominess has seeped its way into some of my pieces.

The good news is, I’ve been keeping up to date with my daily goal. I’ve yet to miss a day and that’s definitely a cool feeling.


I haven’t posted everything from last week this time. To check out my rest, have a peek at my Instagram.

Daily Challenge – 1 Week In

Hi everyone, I figured this would be a good time for a quick update.

Last week, I wrote a post about my goals for 2017. So far, I’ve been doing good – keeping up with my goal to produce art every day.

Day 1. Yesterday's sketch 🌵 • • #instaart #artoftheday #instaartist #art #sketch

What? It was hard enough making one a week but I decided to push myself to do one a day.


There have already been days when I dreaded working on this. Either because I think the piece is terrible or I can’t think of anything remotely interesting to draw.


On days like that, I used to leave things unfinished and procrastinate with some other menial task (terrible habit, I know!). But so far, the pressure to have something to upload the next day has been enough of a driving force to keep me on track.


I’m aiming to do it long enough that it becomes a habit (we all know how fleeting motivation alone can be).


As I scroll through this post, I’m totally surprised by how much work I’m capable of producing if I put my mind to it. If you’re busy with school or a full time job, I hope this sheds light into what can await you too.

I spent the past few months, feeling lucky if I had one piece uploaded on Instagram per week. But in the last few days, I’ve just been using lunch breaks and free time to create things. So if it helps, I really recommend using little pockets of available time in your day. Oh, and take your sketchbook everywhere with you. And you’d be surprised how much you’ll have done in a week!
