EDM Update 1: My Progress So Far

This post is the start of a series of posts following my progress through the Every Day Matters (EDM) list, a list of drawing challenges to take on. I recently threw myself head first into this list, aiming to do two items a day (not the one a week the list suggests) and here’s what I came out with:

As you can see from the numbers there are a bunch of challenges I missed out. I didn’t get the chance to do as many drawings as I would have liked to due to illness and work, so I am falling behind and will have to catch up soon. But I’ve enjoyed the challenge so far and I’m impressed that I’ve managed this many drawings considering my last EDM post was almost a year ago, in January. It will be interesting keeping this up and seeing how much my drawing skill will improve over the course of the challenge.

So let me know what you think so far and stay tuned for more EDM Every Day Matters updates.
