Art Every Day Month - Day 24

When I don't have much time to do something creative, I usually make a lyricsgirl or a oneliner. Since it's ages ago I did a oneliner, I chose that for the 24th day of AEDM.

Don't remember how I did the background, I had these pages prepared a long time ago and then forgot all about it. For those new to my blog: oneliners have this name for 2 reasons: the drawing is made out of one line, meaning the marker stays on the page the whole time until the drawing is done. I can go over one line more than once, but I can't lift the marker. Second reason is that they are all accompanied by a oneline quote (well, okay, sometimes two lines ... ☺).

The reason I started making these was because I wanted to learn to draw "ugly". I tend to be a bit too perfectionist when I'm drawing, and with these girls I can't, because I have to work really fast, and when one line isn't good I still need to keep going (I work with ink on watercolour paper, and when I stay too long in one spot I get a big black dot ....).

Anyway, this is my contribution to Art Every Day Month. Thanks so much for visiting, I'll be back tomorrow!

  4. I love to see your creativity pouring out every day, it's lovely! I don't have a problem drawing ugly, it's the beautiful face s I struggle with! When I make my mixed media pieces, I tend to paint the face on paper and glue it onto the board. I wish I though of this ages ago. :)

  7. You can definitely be proud of yourself. Both the drawing and the quote are fantastic. SERIOUSLY. Take it from someone who can't draw a straight line!
