Live Sketch Challenge – Once again,Chef Miker tries to draw in the Daredevil Gauntlet, this time live at Maker Faire Detroit! What does the Daredevil Gauntlet entail? Simply put, 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. Joe Foo and Emily both dump cooked spaghetti down the back of Chef Miker’s shirt as he sketches!
In this video, Chef Miker blindly sketches a bear, a walrus, a wombat (kinda), an orca and a gorilla. Not only is Chef Miker blindfolded, but he also is not wearing his glasses… making him extra blind! 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!
If you have any questions, post to the comments on the YouTube channel, or find Joe Foo or Drew T Drawtopus on Instagram (links below).
