Our Design content manager Kristin Ellison takes on our 21-Day Drawing Challenge and lets you see the daily results.
Today Von challenged us to go out into the world and draw what we saw for two hours.
Sadly I didn’t have the full two hours, but I did try my hand at capturing life—which was tough!
Drawing people is hard for me, and to make matters harder, these people were partially obscured.

So getting the general shape down quickly is essential; then, if you have the luxury of time, you can go back in and tighten up the details.
Check back next week to see how I completed the final challenge: a self-portrait! Now that’s a daunting task. I need a few days to think about how best to tackle that one …
