30 illustration ideas #ICanDrawAboutIt

“What motivates you to draw everyday? Where do you get your content/ ideas from?” – are questions I get asked frequently.

My Instagram feed is full of ideas/concepts that I have impulsively jotted down on my phone or a piece of paper amidst dinners, loo breaks or a long runs. I call this the “I can draw about this!” moment. The exercise is to actively think about and mindfully observe thoughts or scenarios that happen daily that would make great illustration. When you notice something noteworthy in your day, you ask yourself if it works as a still visual and bingo –  this is the “I can draw about it!” moment. In the beginning it is a bit tiring to actively think about everything that happens around you and to you, but before you know it, it will turn into a prized passive skill.
Warning: You’ll have tons of scrap paper, used tissues and scribbled restaurant bills full of ideas in your bag! 😀

This skill will take time and patience to develop, so until then, here’s 30 illustration ideas as your training wheels. Feel free to start this whenever you’d like, or let’s start together in April so you can actively see how others are doing – I will play along once in a while as well! You can also share this with your friends to see how creativity differs from person to person. No excuses no more- amazing Instagram feed starts now!

Ponch

PONCH is a short children’s story that was exhibited over the period of 55mins on instagram (@pranitart).
The idea of the instagram-exhibition was to involve the audience in the story of Ponch, a whale who visits the city and witnesses the cruelity of society but also finds a true friend and regains faith in humanity.

Stop Chasing Love

‘Stop Chasing Love’ is a short picture story exhibited on Instagram. I used the Instagram interface as my canvas. Have a look at this story on my instagram @pranitart
About:
‘Stop Chasing Love’ is a picture story about a girl (us, humans) being greedy about love.
Love here can be anything – your partner, your family, your friends, your work.
There is a thin line between chasing love and embracing love. Embrace it!



















Monster

MONSTER is the second short children’s story that was exhibited over the period of 45mins on instagram (@pranitart).
The idea of the instagram-exhibition was to involve the audience in the story of a girl who had a monster in her.
We often attract vices easily and grow a monster in us. One must kill the monster, before it kills us. This story talks about the power of love, and how it heals everything.
