Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original drawing, sketch, cartoon, or comic at least 5 days a week.
Work in progress. I am working on a big piece that is due in about a month and this is one of the characters I am hoping to add. It is part of a competition for a DJ who is looking for promotional artwork in the style of a comic book cover. This is definitely the point where my passion and my talent conflict. I have great ideas but sure as heck can’t execute them, especially in 30 days. But, I enjoy the challenge of trying to do a specific piece that requires me to try and capture someone’s spirit within a specific genre.
I have no absurd expectations at winning this competition but I do enjoy the mental exercise it requires. It reminds me of running marathons. It takes a lot of training and time but a lot of people do it and have no hope of winning. Just finishing is a win for most people. I wish people would take the same approach to other type of competitions, like art, writing, and singing. I think then it would make it less scary for people, including myself, if it wasn’t viewed as for only the elite.
