The day five challenge was to draw my best friend. Sadly I could not find a great picture of her, so after several frustrating attempts, you're stuck with this. She has lovely eyes, kind and always laughing.
Drawing time: Minus failed attempts, three minutes.
Day six's challenge was to draw my favorite book character. I found this a challenge as (a) I love a lot of books and have no one favorite character, let alone a single favorite book and (b) most of the characters I do love have already been rendered somehow. So I opted for Yvaine from Neil Gaiman's "Stardust." Obviously, this is my version and not Claire Danes.
Drawing time: 10 minutes
Yesterday's illustration was to draw my favorite word. Funnily enough, I already have the word, "serendipity" tattooed on my leg. I took the challenge to literally mean design typography rather than draw the meaning of the word. I really enjoyed this one and thought my little font came out quite nicely especially for not bothering to design it properly (measuring serifs and all that).
Drawing time: 15 minutes (I had to go back and redo some of the spacing before I inked it in and it's still not perfect).
