Last year, she did a 15 Day Drawing Challenge. I did not partake but I loved seeing all the drawings shared by fellow Wit&Whistle followers and, of course, shared by Amanda herself. This year she proposed a 2016 Drawing Challenge with an 8 item list for the month of January. One of my new year's resolutions was "Do more of what I love/Take more time out for me." Ever since transitioning to "adulthood" with college responsibilities and then, finding a job and building a career, I have struggled to take the appropriate amount of time out my life for myself. I lost touch with a lot of my previous passions, one of which is drawing. When I saw Amanda was running another drawing challenge, I immediately knew I had to jump on board. What a great way to build up the habit again.
I've only completed 5 of the 8 items, and it's already January 31, 2016, so you can see that putting aside the time is still a battle for me, but it's progress!
Below is the first item on the list: "Your Favorite Childhood Toy." See the other four after the jump!
What are your hobbies and passions? Have any tips for making time for them?
Item 1 of the Wit&Whistle Drawing Challenge 2016 - "Your Favorite Childhood Toy" That box is the actual box of crayons I had growing up. I just kept putting new crayons in it through the years. #wwdrawingchallenge #drawing #alittlerusty #practice #practicemakesperfect #pencil #crayola #childhood #sketch #sketchbook
