The month of March (or at least parts of it) will be dedicated to sketches. And before we get too far into this, let me set something straight; I'm no illustrator and not even that great with drawings. Alas, I'll make no apologies. There is a funky, semi-distorted style to most everything I draw and while in Kansas, I had an excellent Drawing II teacher who taught me how to turn my weird style into a strength. I'm looking to get that back.
Sketching is probably the most difficult (and makes me feel the most vulnerable) of all the challenges I'm assigning myself this year. The purpose of this month's challenge is to get me back to the basics. It's an important aspect of design that most designers tend to neglect including me. Hopefully there will be a dramatic improvement by March 31.
Unfortunately, March will be a short month because it took a week longer to finish the alphabet than intended, and during the last week of March I'll be in the UK *hooray!* so I'll probably be posting a photo a day in lieu of a sketch.
With that long-winded explanation, today's sketch is one of our living room chairs.
