15 days of Marker Art

Everyday for 15 days I made a pattern piece using a limited set of marker colors.

Rules:

  • Use only markers from my cheap marker set.
  • 4 colors max per piece
  • Only patterns and shapes
  • No pop culture references
  • Make one everyday and post it on Instagram

 

Why?

I wanted to see if I can do a daily challenge. Over the weekend, it’s easy to make work. But over the weekday, it becomes a bit harder to do anything. After work it becomes almost impossible to create things. Usually after a long commute from work comes the exhaustion of the day.

Results?

I did it.  It got me a few Instagram followers. I found ways of motivating myself to continue to be creative through the day. It was difficult coming up with a new pattern.

Conclusion:

I’m starting to develop them into new art pieces. I’m not exactly sure where I’m going with it. But I do like to start with the weird and see where it turns out. One of the patterns resembled the flatwoods monster.
