Day 5: Draw a Receipt

(upbeat music) Hi, my name's Kate Bingaman-Burt, and this is 28 to Make. For this project, we are going to draw the bits of paper that we collect in our pockets, in our wallets, that we throw away, and immortalize them into a simple black and white line drawing that is not going to take you long to do whatsoever. I'm talking about drawing our receipts. All of this used to be money, which is very sad, but what you can do with these really lovely pieces of paper is draw them, and practice your typed skills, practice your hand skills, and then also reflect on either maybe the experience that you had as you were spending this money, and kind of do a really fun visual diary entry too, like for example, this was some sushi that I recently had with my friend Zach, and we had a lovely time. The food is gone, the receipt remains. Let's draw it. Another example of what you could do is draw your gate claim bag. Again, these are the pieces of paper that we throw away and forget, but they're real...

ly lovely and they have really good examples of type and again, this hot pink is so nice. Of course I didn't throw it away. Other examples of what you could do would even be your credit card statements, which might not be that much fun to draw, but it would surely help you to remember to pay your credit cards too, so again, this is an example of a Walgreens receipt that I drew. This is an example of a parking ticket that I got, because I always get parking tickets, and if you really want to kick this project up a notch, you can draw your credit card statements and then you can letter press it, and then have someone purchase it and maybe help you pay down your credit card debt. Another kind of extreme extension of this assignment is to kind of poke fun at the fact that a lot of our receipts are way longer than they need to be, so do a giant, oversized receipt, really showcasing, this was-- I feel like this might have been actual size, but it might be a little bit larger in drawing, or get really crazy with it, and put your receipt on a giant piece of wood and turn it into a fun piece of art for your home. So again, this project should only take you 20 minutes, and I am really looking forward to seeing what's in your pockets, what's inside your wallets, and what you have been buying, and how you're going to draw it. Don't forget to share this with the hashtag 28 to Make, and have fun going through your stuff and drawing it. (upbeat music)

I just loved the way this was presented and the immediate connection of the videos and their content which helped me discover and try things I would not have thought I could do. The affirmations from others doing the same thing and being able to gather ideas from the 'sharing' bit was also important for me. I have gained a lot creatively and it has fired parts of my imagination that lay hidden. I am just sorry it is formally over. I missed the last x3 sessions and the portfolio bit due to illness but will complete the other tasks and will continue explore developing those that really opened a creative slot for me. Above all thanks to the tutors - each of you - I loved the content you chose and the enthusiasm and creative energy you conveyed in just a few moments and the generous attitude of the skills share. That's it - Thank you, would recommend to anyone not to miss this opportunity.

I was looking for a way to get back into the habit of creating. The class has some fun ideas for projects that are easy to work on, which is super helpful. Every day I was excited to see what my new project was! But...a few seemed to not be what I considered sketching or drawing and didn't seem to fit the description. Overall, very helpful though :)

Best course ever on Creative Live. It's the foundation for doing anything or everything creative. Even if you think your only creative interest is say photography ...and you're not a drawer, maker or artist of any kind ...think again. This course will open up your mind and you will discover that actually you are a creative and you can pick up a pencil and draw... and it doesn't take up much time... 10-20 minutes a day. In the beginning it's not about the end result, it's about the doing and how it sets something off in your brain. It will make a huge difference to everything else you put your hands and mind to in life.
