A few years back I had been working on RetroSupply so much that I completely stopped drawing. Every time I sat down to work on an illustration I was frustrated and overwhelmed.
- What should I draw?
- Should I make a personal project like my favorite artist?
- What if I finally follow along with that drawing book I got five months ago?
Before I had even started I was overwhelmed by decisions. This was the #1 thing that stopped my from every making progress.
Then one day while talking to my friends someone suggested I draw a picture and post it every day for 100 days. I committed and started the challenge the next day.
Between the social pressure and the clear simplicity of the challenge I was able to do it! I drew for 100 days straight and by the end of the challenge the quality of my work had improved, I was faster, and I felt great.
