Day #241 of “Draw an object a day for 365 days”

Computer bag drawings.
Computer bag drawing. Object #237.

I’m having to make more of an effort to identify objects I haven’t already drawn. Sometimes that means looking around me to see if I’ve missed items I’m too used to seeing, other times I need to go outside and look.

I want to draw¬†ordinary objects, which are often overlooked or objects that are a natural part of our everyday lives. Occasionally it may mean an unusual objects creeps in, but overall I’m drawing the mundane or items we just take for granted.

Through these 365 days I’m building a palette of object drawings, while also finding new ways of drawing items. At the same time this project is a kind of daily diary, describing the world around me.

Drawing an object a day for 365 days

Follow me on TwitterI’m drawing an object and posting it to Instagram¬†each day, for 365 days.
The objects I choose will be those that surround me in everyday life and more unusual objects that interest me.

After 365 days all of the objects will be displayed to form a self-portrait in objects.

Kid gloves. Oil pastel on mixed papers on cardboard.

This work featured in the Bartleby exhibition in Berlin.

The drawings are of a pair of gardening gloves, bought from a Berlin hardware store (Bauhaus). 3 different types of paper were used in it’s creation. One is patterned with Russian dolls (Matryoshka).

The title “Kid gloves” is a reference to the situation in Ukraine and Europe’s approach to Russia and it’s involvement in the conflict there and its annexation of Crimea.

A second pair of gloves were also studied to produce a third piece of work at the exhibition.
