i’ve come up with the idea of starting a group blog designed to help those of us who draw but are crippled by boredom, creative blocks and anxiety, get motivated to make a drawing every day. anybody involved can, whenever they see some sufficiently interesting photograph or painting or cartoon or whatever on their dash, reblog it to the drawing blog. then anybody involved can make a drawing study (even a really abstract one) from the post, and if they so choose (which would be preferable), post their drawings to the drawing blog too.
i shall now tag some randos to see who, if anybody, is interested. i’ll probably do another round of tagging later just to re-up this post, and give me time to think of some more people. message me if you got any ideas about this, or if you just want in (whether or not i tagged you). if you’re not interested and have no ideas, do nothing! EVER.
it’s hard to think of people i know who draw. let me know if you draw and i don’t know it (notice i didn’t say “draw well”), or i’m missing somebody who would obviously be interested.
i’m gonna watch this. billy blanks is the guy from tae bo

A page from Chris Ware’s sketchbook from 1993. “What one thinks of as pictures in comics are really the equivalent of drawn words—words meant to be read, not looked at—which is analogous to the way humans perceive the world. Looking is a part of it, but not all of it.”
The most important thing was that Fox showed a couple horror movies on weekend afternoons. They had an amazing ad for this that played the song “Shout” (as in “you make me wanna”) with all the money shots from CHILDREN OF THE CORN and HALLOWEEN 3 and shit. If you can find a copy of this ad online I will totally give you something.
