Day 1 of 21 - Free Draw

I am participating in the 21 Day Creative Challenge started by Gina Perry. There are so many other great illustrators participating, don't miss visiting their blogs. You will surely be inspired. I'm going to try and have a list on my side bar of them.. this weekend should allow me some time to do that.

I am still figuring out exactly what I will be trying to work on. I know one thing is to push my imagination a bit and just listen to music and draw for 15-30 minutes. If I can color it before posting that will be great, but if I can't I am going to post what I did as is.

I did this drawing while listening to some Eddie Vedder and I must say it felt good. So relaxing to just let myself flow. I'm sure most of them won't make much sense or have a concept behind them - I'm so trained to have concepts and reasons for my designs/illustrations - it feels good to just let go and draw.
(Small note: I had this almost completely colored and when I went to save it crashed! GAH! Needless to say, I was crushed. I shook it off and decided to just show it without the colored version.)

I really like this! It's a whole new side to your art. I say don't worry about coloring, just let things be what they turn out to be. This one obviously wasn't meant to be more and it's gorgeous as is. So free and energetic. It reminds me of an album cover, or maybe a concert poster.

I can't wait to see what you do next!
