It all started with Greece Wither Spoon. My old art school friend, Spencer, went to the Oscars this year- it was so exciting to see him hanging out with the stars! On Facebook, one of his friends wrote: “I saw you behind Greece Wither Spoon.” We thought that she was being funny, but it turned out to be an autocorrect error from her phone. I commented on it and Spencer suggested that we both draw quick sketches of Greece and submit them to each others timeline the next day.
Next thing Spencer suggested we take turns picking subjects to do quick sketches of every day or so. We did a couple more sketches back and forth, and we realized that it might be something our friends would be interested in doing as well so I started a Facebook group (Sketch of the Day or SOD). Without forcing people into the group, we acquired over 70 members in only a couple weeks! Please feel free to join as well. It has been so much fun and there is no pressure to draw every day, but like me, you might just find yourself doing it anyway!
If you have any sketch subjects you would like to see our group do, please leave a comment. Thanks!
