Below is my drawing from day 2 of my motivation experiment.

Motivation experiment day 2 – drawn 22/4/2014

The main motivator to do this drawing was having committed myself to doing a drawing each day for this experiment. There wasn’t a sense of inspiration and I had no idea what to draw. You can see it is a very similar, abstract style to the previous day’s drawing.

There was some additional motivation created by experimenting with a digital pen, which was a relatively new toy.

Overall, though, I had to push myself to keep to my commitment to draw this, and struggled with feeling I didn’t know what to draw. I managed that obstacle by telling myself it didn’t matter if I just scribbled – as long as I drew something.
