Drawing grids has been a recent topic of discussion on the Everyday Matters Group . So tonight, I had a few minutes while I was waiting for Jasmin to arrive so that we could go see the Star Wars movie and I sketched some stuff laying around. I had already done a small entry at the top of this page, but didn’t want to leave two thirds of the page empty so this small little grid drawing worked out perfect. I added color in Photoshop (same style as my sketchcrawl grid).
Linda M. did a grid of 30 things in her yard. (Unfortunately you can’t see it, unless you are a member of the group, and she doesn’t have a blog that I know of). Typically a drawing grid is a series of small drawings done one per day in little boxes all on one page. It’s a great way to get started drawing, journaling everyday. Especially when filling an entire page feels a little intimidating. I think it was originally Danny Gregory’s idea, but I am not sure. Anyway, I like seeing the variations on it. The yard grid was a great idea, I might have to try that. I need an excuse to get out in my yard and do something anyway. Maybe drawing will motivate me to actually get some yard work accomplished.
