Autumn Shapes #64millionartists #reds #plantscenery #colours Autumn Shapes adjusted red hot pokers #nature #plantscenery #64millionartists #reds Weekly Challenge, 24th September - The Shape of Autumn . As the seasons change and we see a little less sunlight, the falling leaves turn yellow and birds migrate to warmer places, we welcome autumn and all it brings. Sam, founder of graphic design studio Festoon, helps people visualise their thoughts and ideas. He shapes how people absorb and engage with written and visual information. Setting this week’s challenge he wants to encourage you to give this a try with the changing landscape. How can you visualise the feelings of autumn? What stands out for you at this time and how do you want to visually emphasise that to others? How could you possibly reframe or offer a new perspective on autumn? . Create the shape of autumn. Cut out a shape (or shapes) in a piece of paper that you feel represents autumn, whether it be leaves falling, an autumnal sunset or work getting busier again after summer. Try to keep it bold so it’s easy to recognise. Once you’ve got your cut out, find a landscape or object that you feel best represents an aspect of autumn. Hold up your stencil and use it to frame a photo. . Find the full challenge on our dothinkshare site (link in bio). . Share your stencil photos with us. We'd love to see your take on autumn.

Incorporating creative activities into life with a baby has many benefits, but creativity is often at its best when its just simply doing something for the enjoyment and fun of it and for your own wellbeing. 64 Million Artists believe that everyone is creative and that when we use our creativity we can make positive change in our lives and the world around us. We completely agree! Day 265 . Only another hundred drawings to do. Its such a horrible day here today I have dug out a photo of the #brightonpavillion to draw to remind me of my trip to #Brighton last month.?#2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles Day 264 #fircone #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles Day 263 A plate of pears #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife Day 262 #figs #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife #fruity #foodillustration Day 261 #pricklypears #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife #foodillustration Friendly Fashion bramble stain natural clay coffee spelt flour glue recycled paper -tools gull feather quill @revisionmagazine #64millionartists #art #nature #drawingmatters Friendly Fashion my research site -natural clay water algae bloom wild plants creating a palette -watch this space for the images @revisionmagazine #64millionartists #nature Friendly Fashion my research site -natural clay water algae bloom wild plants creating a palette -watch this space for the images @revisionmagazine #64millionartists #nature ✨Flashback to @richardmalone LFW 2017 using natural dyes✨ This week we are collaborating with @64millionartists by setting a creative challenge which anyone can get involved with.

Have a look around and see what you could use and what colours you can create. You could re-vamp an existing piece of clothing or test it out on some spare fabric to start. Berries, beetroot, spices, coffee? Avocado skin when used as a dye has a dusky pink colour… . Find the full challenge on their dothinkshare site (link in their bio). .

We wish people got as excited about innovations in fashion as they do with new iPhones because it’s exciting, dressing the future. A bold statement to start the week from @revisionmagazine, an independent magazine challenging the way sustainability is communicated by simply curating and showcasing the best designers, artists and thinkers leading the way. They want to show how un-cool fast fashion really is, and to do this, present you with an alternative. So this week we’re inviting you to start by creating your own alternative at home. How can we use what we already have to disrupt the disposable fashion loop? How can we reconnect with the natural world to encourage us to think about our impact on it? . There are plenty of natural dyes in your food cupboards. Have a root around and see what colours you can create. You could re-vamp an existing piece of clothing or test it out on spare fabric or a tea-towel to start. Berries, beetroot, spices, coffee? Maybe you could even take to the garden.

Yesterday I participated in a #64millionartists experiment / challenge ... to intentionally draw “crap faces” - faces which are not good. Several kind and honest souls took the time to review and vote on the result, designating my output as Crap and/or Not Crap. Now, here for their and your viewing pleasure are the results. Top image was a unanimous vote-getter as Not Crap. Swipe to see the runner-up images also deemed Not Crappy. Lastly, you’ll see my top crappiest drawing. It’s an experiment by artist @stevexoh (author of the new book 100 Crap Faces) to get people to stretch their artistic abilities and have some fun. Join in or send me your crappy drawing if you wish! This experiment made me laugh and I appreciate that people were willing to grade me on the Crap-o-Meter scale, quite decisively, in fact. Also, disclaimer: I have probably now used the word “crap” more times in the last 24 hours than I have in my life! Not my typical vernacular. #100crapfaces #doodles #drawing #creative Day 247 Line drawn chair #2O18challenge #csadaily18 #asketchaday #64millionartists #documentinglife #domesticity #mundane #householdobjects #objects #linedrawing #penandink #drawingart #creative2018 #instadraw #blackandwhite #illustrationgram #documenting #illustragram #quirky #dailypractice #visualdiary #iliketodraw #drawingfromlife @prismtextiles Did you know that, as part of our Weekly Challenge, @stevexoh is giving away 3 copies of his new book - 100 Crap Faces!?
