How Big Do You Draw? (#IDrawThisBig) by Colby Sharp
I found out this week that Lauren Castillo draws small. Very small. In fact, when she sketches the characters are often 1.5 to 2 inches tall. I asked her to take a picture of one of her sketches with a quarter next to it. I loved seeing her little hedgehog chilling next to that quarter. It made me curious to know the size other illustrators sketch their characters.
We would love to have our favorite illustrators snap a picture from one of their drawings with a quarter sitting next to one of the characters. A picture from a sketchbook would be perfect.
Illustrators can share their images by using the Twitter/Instagram hashtag #IDrawThisBig, or they can email them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’ll collect the images and throw them together in a post. I can’t wait to see what all these pictures look like sitting next to each other.
Pictures must be tweeted, instagrammed, or emailed by January 31.
I think that this is a post that our students will absolutely cherish.
Thanks for being Nerdy!
