4 You MUST use achromatic media (this means without hue: black and white)
5 Do at least 8 different actions to create your 10 drawings. The actions you can do are practically limitless to create fabulous marksDo at least 8 different actions to create your 10 drawings..Use your mouthDraw with your feetUse an inanimate objectGET CREATIVE with how you do this!!!
6 Do not hold the medium in your hand like a pencil Do not hold the medium in your hand like a pencil. Grasp it where you can hold your wrist and hand still. Allow the movement of your body or vehicle to create the line. Do not force the line to happen let the movement of your body move the drawing instrument not your hand. You are recording movement.
7 After you have completed your 10 drawings, pick your best 5 and crop to make interesting compositions.
9 Example: place your sketchbook in your lap as you ride the bus or metro link. Do not hold the writing instrument like a pencil! Watch lines form as your body sways with the curves of the road and the bumps of the asphalt.
