So, I’m starting a new project based on drawing shit. Literally. In 2011, I was struggling to come up with a 365 project to practice my skills—I wanted something unique and funny. My friend waved off my anxiety, saying “just draw some shit, okay?” I took it to heart. I felt like it was the answer. “You’re right!” I said. “I’ll draw shit!” I started by doodling in a little book, but lost the book 20 days in.
Fast forward to 2015, when I have a better computer with better skills and more structured time, drawing shit literally has rebirthed. Check out the project here, and my favorites (so far) below:
My favorite part of this is that it’s self-assigned. I pick the styles, I decide when they go up, how they go up, and how they caption them. It’s my digital playground, my chance to really explore which styles I like, which styles I feel like I’m best at and which I can leave behind. I’m excited to develop this project throughout the year and possibly make prints, etc.
