A Wednesday Idea. Crazy Or Otherwise.


I had been doing a Wednesday List Of Ten Things I Like, but I began to feel it was getting stale, and I was running out of things I liked. I find that as I work I’m always coming up with ideas for art projects, and while some are good some are a bit crazy. So my idea this week is…

My idea is simple. On a 3×4 inch piece of paper draw the word draw.  Then go to a library or used bookstore and place your drawing in a dictionary by the definition of the word draw, and leave it for someone to find.

The rules are simple.

1. Draw the word draw. Don’t write it. Draw it. Whatever that means.

    • It would be a more artistic statement, but maybe something like that could be another Wednesday Idea. Hmmm. Actually you’ve just given me an idea!

      • I did it! 🙂 had to bend the rules slightly as I went to a cafe that has a wall of old books, and they didn’t have a dictionary..but found an encylopedia, (which is almost a dictionary…?!) on illustration..had a fascinating half hour reading through it, was filled with really interesting old illustrations, which inspired me to draw the word draw in lots of tiny fine lines…then I sneakily hid it within the pages! Fun! Thanks for the suggestion, was a very inspiring tea break! 🙂

  2. Very cool. Very zimple. Very eazy. Weird, I feel like cooking… Anyway, I think I’ll take this one on! My library is closed on Friday though (yeah, I know?! wtf?) so this won’t be until Monday earliest…
