Last year I was too overwhelmed with work to participate in the 30-Day Drawing Challenge Part I (see today’s earlier post on Possibilities). But this year, I’m in.
If nothing else, this challenge demonstrates that there is more to the internet than cute videos of cats.
See the blog Expatriatism for a list of the other worthy participants, including my artist niece, and links to their daily drawings.
Day 1: Our assignment was to draw a Muppet.
I chose Ernie as the quintessential Muppet, thinking he might be fun to draw. And with each stroke of my pen, I was ever so thankful that my kids grew up with Sesame Street… that is, before the Purple Dinosaur-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named came on the scene.
I learned a lot from our daughter playing and replaying her Bert and Ernie tapes in the back seat, including some very nifty music about pigeons, and a whole list of lovely words that begin with the letter L.
