The Big Draw 2014 – A Drawing Event Like Never Before

The Big Draw 2014 fills October with a month of hard work, drawing, and also wide-scale designs. As I’m a part of The Big Draw now I study at Croydon College, this is a fantastic opportunity not just for me, but also for those of you who are taking part in such an important drawing event.

What is The Big Draw?

The Big Draw is where you have to create a drawing that is large and wide, but to also create something that is your own, so that you can make sure your drawing really stands out from the crowd.

Is The Big Draw an easy event?

In honesty, it actually isn’t as easy as you think, because your drawing skills require a lot more focus and attention, for example, if you create something that is big, you need to be sure that your work will really stand out, if you want to be able to create something that is immediately going to grab the person’s attention.

Is this your first time in taking part in this particular event?

To be honest, this is the first time that I have ever taken part in an event like this, as this event will be able to give me a chance to expand my creative ideas and drawing skills further.

Which 2 artists do you believe are or may be connected to The Big Draw event?

In my eyes, I believe that Pablo Picasso and Julian Opie are connected to The Big Draw event, because they have crafted their own works in their own format, but also in a way where their own works will be remembered by many for generations to come.

Is Art an easy subject or not?

Art is actually a difficult subject at the end of the day, because, depending on the workload you are given, you have to make sure that your work is your own, and that you don’t plagiarise on the many famous works that other artists have created.

To conclude, what one useful tip can you give to those who are also taking part or have taken part in this event?

The tip I have in mind which I want to share with all of you, is to be original. Always make sure that you create something that is your own, and that what you make is your own, and no-one else’s. If you plagiarise, it won’t do you any good, because after all, copying what other people have created could eventually land you in heaps of trouble.
