Live Sketch Challenge – So a little back story, we had Chef Miker scheduled to draw in the Daredevil Gauntlet. However, no one could find him! Seriously, completely gone! So in this video, Josh comes to the rescue. Much to his dismay, the Camp PencilPoint Master of Ceremonies partakes in the Daredevil Gauntlet live at Maker Faire Detroit! Two of our favorite Camp PencilPointers, Alexander and Elizabeth help us out in all the blind sketching goodness.
What does the Daredevil Gauntlet entail? Josh regretfully found out that it is blind drawing but with heightened senses. In this case, it is the sense of touch. How do you increase the sense of touch? You use cold, sticky, wet spaghetti.
In previous videos, Joe Foo and Emily both dump cooked spaghetti down the back of Chef Miker’s shirt as he sketched! (Check out the previous Maker Faire video here.) In this video, Joe Foo and Emily do the same to Josh. The funny part is that Chef Miker doesn’t care if wet sticky noodles are shoved down the back of his shirt. This is Josh’s worst nightmare.
From Alexander’s and Elizabeth’s suggestions, Josh blindly sketches an elephant, a penguin, a mouse, a porcupine, an octopus (not quite) and a giraffe. All of these sketches were drawn in complete blindness… and misery!
The purpose of this challenge is not to create an amazing drawing. It actually sets you up to fail. However, when you take away all of your expectations of perfection, you end up having a lot of fun. What you are left with is a lot of laughs and possibly a chance to spark some creativity.
Try this challenge on your own… but maybe minus the cooked spaghetti. (We don’t want angry emails and cleaning bills!) Grab some friends or members and close your eyes. Try some blind drawings on your own! The point of this exercise is to have fun and create something crazy, so enjoy the unpredictability!
Take pics of some of your favorite ones and show us! Post your art to social media and use the hashtag #CAMPPENCILPOINT. The artists of Camp PencilPoint will keep an eye out for these!
