One of my roommates and I spent a night in admiration of the Hypebeast’s Pen&Paper series. The Pen&Paper series features different artists, their sketchbooks, and their own interpretation of the word Hypebeast. We then began sharing other art links (including the quirky typography of Rox) and excitedly explained why we marveled at each one. This conversation ignited the need to put our own pens and paper together.
Upon peeking at these artists’ work, I realized that each day should be an opportunity to perfect the craft. The best artists’ provide upmost care and perseverance in their creations, developing undeniable qualities.
Yeah, I am definitely not there [yet]. Like I said, each day is an opportunity to perfect the craft and I am ready to fully recognize that. Thus! I decided to begin a 365 day challenge.
The basic rule is that I have to create a new logo for Empire everyday. Drawing everyday will already be a disciplinary challenge but I hope this challenge will also develop precision and a recognizable quality too.
Day 1: Bringing back the angels
Day 3: Can’t wait to be king
Day 6: Woodsy
Day 7: Smoke
A week has passed since I began the challenge and, I must say, I got lots to learn. I’m having fun experimenting with different styles and ideas, however, straight lines will be the death of me! We’ll see what challenges this challenge will challenge me with this week.
365 Challenge accepted!
