Make a Modern Drawing





Introduction: Make a Modern Drawing

Even with the most limited drawing skills you can make a neat drawing totally worthy of that coveted space on the freezer for everyone to see.
Materials needed:
>The Internet
>about 30 minutes of free time

Have fun!

Step 1: Think for a Minute....

Find things that interest you and write it in one area of the white paper
Things I find interesting...
-lines with dots
-cell phones

writing in different sizes will make the drawing interesting.
Make sure you will use the whole page.

Step 2: Internet

look these things up on the internet to find pictures of them to imitate...
do your best and draw big. simplify complex images with outlines of them or just put your paper on your monitor and trace them (lightly!).
put them on the paper and connect them!

Step 3: Draw Lines

now draw radiating lines from some things and draw shape patterns in other areas. you want to draw on the whole page!
fill it up with nonsense. scribbles- the word "onomatopoeia"...
circles, x's, the shape of a paperclip, jab at the paper with the marker. make it interesting. make some outlines stronger.
this is really art- I'm totally serious.

Step 4: The Once Over...

look at your drawing....
color in areas. make sure that there are no gaping holes. color in areas that look wierd. having sark and light areas will make the picture interesting.
By the end you should have very little clues that you wrote your ideas on the page.
the patterns will make the picture interesting and people will really be interested in your art!

Step 5: Voila!

your new modern art drawing is ready to be under a magnet on the freezer.
Or posted out on your cubicle.
Be proud! You are an artist and you just drew some lines and wrote some words!
Great job. Have fun!

    This is mine, first try and took about 1 hour. I split it up, i didnt do it all at once xD.


    Very cute! I think this is a great concept and you've got some creative skills there!

    I appreciate the instructable, although, I am a little disappointed to see this done so easily. I think I've lost my romance with art.

    Art is an expression from the heart, it can be complicated or easy, it's what you make it. If this was too easy for you try making a challenge for yourself to make it more difficult and I promise ot will be rewarding. the fact that this is so easy for you just means your mind wants more! feed your imagination and let the emotions flow through your chosen artistic tools. Like I said the only reason you were disappointed in the ease of this project is because you obviously desire your art to be a challenge... SO use that to create AWESOME things. :) good luck and happy tinkering.


    That's why I love art so much. Because it can take years to finish or seconds. Just depends on how you look at it, and as 'they' say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Amazing tutorial! Tried it and turn out nearly the same, thanks!
