75 Ways to Draw More: Advice for People Who Don’t Draw

Michael Nobbs has posted a little booklet on Flickr that has a list of 75 ways to draw more.  Interesting concept.  But of course it should go without saying that if you need to read a list of 75 ways to find more time to draw, you probably should be doing something else anyway.

I think the main information to take away from an illustrated list like this is from the illustrations that show you how to print the list out.  What they show you is that you can just look at an object and start drawing lines on a piece of paper.  Something will emerge.  It might be messy.  It might be neat.  That will be your drawing.  I call this little piece of advice ‘1 way to draw less.’

Workspace and Desk Photos for Inspiration

Here’s a flickr set of workspaces without computers.  I like all the pencils and brushes in jars.  Messy art studios are always fascinating and inspiring.  This set of pictures covers everything from art studios to garages full of tools.

Here’s another set of pictures of bloggers’ desks.  Ever wonder how the person you’re reading works or what their view is like while they come up with those brilliant posts?  Here’s your answer.
