We love a drawing challenge and last year (yeah I know it’s taken us this long to blog about it) Shake Bristol asked us to be a part of their month long drawing challenge; Shaketober! If you don’t know Inktober is a really great drawing challenge on every year in October and Shaketober is the Shake Bristol version.
The theme was National days and we given two dates and a list of different days to pick from. We picked Feral Cat Day and Global Handwashing Day.
Here’s a selection of drawings from the other days we joined in with:
Doing a drawing challenge every day can easily become overwhelming especially if you’re juggling work and/or study as well. Our top tip is to set a particular time each day for drawing and try to stick to it. But don’t worry too much if you miss a day, it’s supposed to be a fun challenge! Use it as a chance to generate new ideas or maybe a way to experiment with a new material.
Follow us on instagram to see what drawing challenges we do this year and let us know in the comments which ones you’re doing.
