Prompt 5 ‘Shapes’ – Scribble Drawing

with No Comments

 

We have to make a mark, even if it’s only a scribble
-John Steinbeck

Your challenge: Make a scribble drawing
  •  First, create or find some uninhibited scribbles, from a child’s drawing or a dog’s muddy footprints on paper. Or make your own, by scribbling on paper with closed eyes in a slow circular motion using one continuous line, if possible.
  • Next, look for an image amongst the scribbles to outline. What can you see in the mess? Do any images or shapes emerge? Is there a bird hiding in the scribbles? A person? An animal? Can you use the energy in the stroke that is already there? Turn your paper this way and that. Don’t see anything? Turn your paper another way.
  • When you find your special something inside your drawing, outline it with a dark marker/pen/pencil/crayon.
  • Take your drawing as further, if you like, filling it in with colour, cutting it out, or whatever.
Resources to help:
  • Need some scribbles? It’s easy to make your own, but you can also download and print some of ours. | Scribble 1| Scribble 2 | Scribble 3 | Scribble 4 |
  • Cheat and complete two steps using the scribbler . This allows you to start to create a “generative illustration” based on your drawing. You can print or save it afterward by following the instructions on the left hand side of the screen.

“All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a wedge-shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

What’s the shape of your self?
