52 Weeks of Drawing: Catching up, again!

I’m behind on my 52 weeks of drawing challenge… again! Ha. BUT, that’s what’s great about this challenge… from the beginning I told myself to NOT stress about this. If I had to miss a week, it’s cool. If you have to miss a week: it’s cool. I love this challenge. Taking time to draw for myself (since I mostly work on custom illustrations).


Week 6: Tool Hmmm…. not sure if a jar is a tool… I guess it is. I’ve been canning quite a bit recently. I love it! I’ll share some recipes/photos soon.

52 Weeks of Drawings: Something you Love

Week 7: Something You Love For the something I love week I drew my beautiful daughter. It’s SO hard to draw someone you REALLY know. I mean, I know all her features and personality… it just means that this illustration took twice as long as a normal drawing. I can’t wait to add some color!

52 weeks of drawing: your name... chelsey

Week 8: Your Name This was a simple illustration for this week (also known as a cheat week, ha). I really have been wanting to practice hand drawn fonts.

What about you, have you been following along in my 52 Weeks of Drawing? You don’t have to DRAW each week, I’m just hoping my prompts will inspire you to do something creative! Photography? Crafting? Whatever. Click here to see all my prompts, and feel free to link up.

Next is week 9: Draw your fave book. Draw the book itself, or a scene from the book.

    Hi Chelsey!

    I am interested in starting to follow your weekly drawing challenge. Question – what is your medium for your drawings? I especially love your Ball jar!

      I sketch with pencil and then add ink. 🙂 I add color in Photoshop.

    Hey, I've followed you for a while now and you're on my sidebar. I can't figure out why it doesn't show that you've updated anymore though. It only started 2 weeks ago, did you change some kind of setting? What can I do to get updated again when you post? Thanks.

      Hmmm. That's weird. I did switch servers a couple of weeks ago. I wonder if there's something I need to change. Thanks for letting me know!
