The lovely Tania McCartney has started a 52 Week Illustration challenge on her blog and on Facebook.
She invited me to join and (after I stopped laughing) I thought ‘why not?’
The thing is, I can’t draw to save myself, and whilst I’ve often heard people say ‘anyone can learn to draw’ I think that’s about as true as ‘anyone can learn to write’ – ie a bit true, but to do so requires a dedication which I don’t have (in regards to drawing, but not to writing). I want to be awesome at writing, and trying to get there takes almost all my time, so for the forseeable future I won’t be taking up art.
However, I paint with words, or at least I try to. So I wondered if I could join in the challenge by contributing a little poem on each week’s topic. Of course Tania, being the lovely person she is, thought that sounded fine, so I’m in.
And, for my first effort, on the topic of eggs, I decided a haiku migt be appropriate.
