Part of The Big Draw Festival 2021

This one-month drawing challenge is a celebration of the humble pencil and getting back to the roots of traditional drawing.
When I discovered the #PriceofaPencil Campaign, I was struck by what a great drawing project this could be, both as a personal challenge to improve my practice, and to get others involved. The aim of this project is to encourage conversations and traditional, daily drawing, by dedicating 31 days to a celebration of the humble pencil.
This is a casual, online event open to everyone, with no costs, commitments or competition. Simply join me in creating a pencil drawing each day, during The Big Draw Festival 2021, when I'll be talking about all things drawing. Throughout the month of October, you can follow along to my progress, tips, and tutorials via my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/valerianstudio/ , and share your creations using the following hashtags: #PriceofaPencilProject #MakeTheChange
#TheBigDraw. Please don't hesitate to tag me in your work, I'd love to see what you draw!
Alongside this event, I'm also raising funds for the #PriceofaPencil campaign for drawing and encouraging others to contribute as little as £1-£2 to this charity. To donate to my GoFundMe for this project, click here:
