Doodle of the Day 24/04/14
Russell Howard: For those of you who don’t know Russell Howard. He is a British stand-up comedian, best known for appearing on TV shows like ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’.
The Next Red Card: First Person on Twitter
I should explain that in the red card deck, along side name cards there are also task cards. In this case the red card chosen at random by my cousin Adam at Easter, was one of these task cards. In this case my task (and yours if you want) is to go on my twitter account and the first person at the top is the person I have to draw next. Understand?
W.I.P: Russell Howard
Just thought I’d show you my work in progress so far on the Russell Howard sketch. As well as the next chosen red card. Which I shall explain once I’ve finished this sketch.
Doodle of the Day 16/04/2014
So this is a portrait of my mate Cody. I think I went a little too detailed, but I’m happy with it over all. You can also see why my current pen has pretty much run out of ink from looking at this portrait.
Next up Russell Howard!
Red Card Photo #1
The first red card chosen by my mom (at random) to start off the Red Card Project is, British comedian Russell Howard! Expect to see my line drawing of him later in the week, after I’ve finished the sketch of my mate Cody. Whose eyes you can see here.
If your reading this your and if you want to join in the ‘Red Card Project’ and do your own sketch, painting, print or whatever, portrait of Russell Howard go ahead and send me a link to the image when your done. I love seeing other peoples illustrations, and I’d love it if other people joined the project.
Daily Doodle 12/04/14
As if we haven’t seen this guy enough already on this blog. No this the first line sketch for the Red Card Project. And yes I know he wasn’t picked from my red card deck. I just wanted to do some practice sketches to prepare for both ‘The Red Card Project’ and another project that I’ve neglected to work on up until now.
I will be posting who the first person chosen form the red card deck is tomorrow. Also I have finally become as techno savvy as the Dalai Lama and joined Twitter @JonWinterman. So start following me there.
Daily Doodle 10/04/14
I currently have a cold, and I’m reminded while I’m sketching why I hate having a cold. Sketch, put down pen, pick up tissue, blow nose. Put down tissue, pick up pen, sketch. Put down pen, pick up tissue, blow nose. This goes on and on and on and ON!!!
THE RED CARD PROJECT
Daily Doodles News
Ok before I explain ‘The Red Card Project’ I should explain what has happened, and what is going to happen to Daily Doodles. There have been two problems that I’ve been having with daily doodles. Firstly the sketchbook is a bit to small for me at A6. Secondly I can’t keep on having free reign I need something to focus on. It is difficult for me to admit this but I just don’t have the time to think of something new to draw everyday, without something to strife towards. That’s where this new project comes in. It also mean that after this month I’m cancelling the ‘Daily Doodle’ and replacing it with ‘Doodle of the Day’. I’m still going to draw everyday and try my best to post something new on this blog as often as I can, but just not every single Day. Now that’s out of the way.
Red Card Project
Pick a card, any card! A couple of months ago my future brother in law gave me some red card, saying that I could do whatever I wanted with it. I recently decided to chop up the card and write a bunch of names and themes on them. Then someone I know will get to pick one of these cards at random, and I have to do a drawing of the person whose on the card. This gives me that focus I’ve been missing. There are many different people already in my current deck, authors, artist, musicians, actors, youtubers, models, sports people, comedians, etc. Also I made sure that there are just as many women as there are men in the deck. There are also random themes like:
-First person I see on Facebook
-First person I see on Tumblr
-First artist I get on Random shuffle on my iPod
Now I realise unless I know you, you won’t actually get to pick a card. However I would love it if you wanted to suggest someone for the Red Card Project, could be anyone you like. Just message me or leave a comment below. Also I will be posting what each new card someone picks so your also welcome to join the project if you wish.
If you’ve read up to this point well done. Thank you for showing your constant support of this blog I hope you like this new project, and will be uploading the first sketch soon.
P.S. I didn’t mean to look so evil in this photo.
