Dear Diary 2016

In 2014 I documented my life for two months by trying to make a daily drawing. I called the project Dear Diary, you can see it here.
I decided to have a go at it again this year. My Subjects are things that I get interested in and I adhere rather strictly to a yellow-dominated color scheme.
As a further rule I have added, that none of the drawings can take longer than 60 minutes to produce. In a way I try to draw digitally in an analogue sense. There are no bigger correction or edits, I have one try … that’s it.

Although my self-imposed rules seem to be quite strict, it is still liberating to just go ahead, and have a finished piece after such a short time. This is quite a contrast to my usual way of working on commissioned drawings. Those require many rounds of revisions and edits.

I started the series on May 9th, and this time used my instagram as a platform to post the drawings.

I made the last drawing on July 18th. All 33 images I made in this time can be seen below.
