Hello everyone!

It’s been a bit of a stretch between blog posts, haha. I’ve been a bit busy with freelance and day job work, and when I do have time to myself I have been more interested in going outside for walks and bike rides, knitting and weaving, or drawing privately in my physical sketchbook. But I did want to come back to this, in particular to talk about my journey to draw a tiger every day.

It’s not going great! That’s not necessarily a bad thing, since I have so much else going on in my life. I still take the time to draw tigers when I can, but as it turns out I just couldn’t find an interesting way to keep up with this self imposed challenge. I think there’s something I could say about self imposed challenges, and how there is value in letting them go. I found out my limit when it comes to drawing a specific subject every day, and there is value in that. I came away from this challenge knowing myself a bit better than before.

I still plan on drawing tigers, just not every day, and when I have enough to share I’ll make another blog post about it. In the meantime I have come across a very talented artist who has been keeping up with the Draw a Tiger Every Day Challenge (inspired by onecoweveryday on Tumblr). He has taken to the challenge by playing with different art styles and even accepting requests from his followers. His art is really lovely and he deserves kudos for how far he has come. Go give him a look and maybe a follow!

I hope to have other art to share between all these tigers. Thanks for stopping by!
