THE SO FREE ART PODCAST

366 Days of Drawing? The Draw Every Day For A Year Art Challenge : Episode 132 of the So Free Art Podcast, with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

Sketches are almost always more fun and exciting than finished drawings, which is the topic for this weeks episode, as lilDENNiS and I talk about Sketches vs Finished Drawings.

Topics

I did it! I finished the Draw Every Day for a Year Art Challenge, which saw me showing up to draw for 366 days in a row. How was it? What did I learn? What did I like? What did I struggle with? Time to find out, in this episode which goes all over the place :)
