Draw something beginning with every letter in the alphabet:


• Draw as if you’ve just seen your subject for the first time.
• Let your hands do the talking – imagine your line conversing with the paper.
• See patterns in everything. Color, dots, lines and motion!
• Look up. And down. Often. Not everything is in the middle.
• Make mistakes,  then some make more.
