What I Wore Today

There's a really cool Flickr pool called What I Wore Today (in drawings). The idea being that you draw a picture of yourself wearing the clothes you picked out (or threw on) today. I decided I'd have a wee go, mainly for something to draw while sitting at the computer.

I found out about the site through the work of 3 different illustrators that I subscribe to: Jen Collins, Lizzy Stewart and Carolyn Alexander. Each participate fairly regularly and always have a great take on it. If you're not familiar with their work, have a look at what they're up to, they've got crazy skills.

As far as my regular participation goes, I'm not sure my patience is up to an endless stream of 'today I wore a shirt' / 'today I wore a t-shirt' drawings, but we'll see. Girls are better at this kinda thing.


  1. You forgot your skateboard, though I suppose you weren't actually wearing it. Would it count as an accessory? I've never been able to draw someone with or on a skateboard without it looking totally whack, probably best avoided.
    I've been meaning to have a go at one of these I really dig afore mentioned participants 'crazy skills' but I can't draw real life things for toffee apples (and I rarely dress different, I have three pairs of the same jeans). It would more likely be a What I Wear Everyday drawing.

  2. still brilliant. perhaps you could do 'what gait i used today' instead? unless you actually skip everywhere.
    jules: if you do a what i wore today, i'll be a happy lady.

  3. I've been wanting to do this for aaaages. I may have to ahve a go at it. This is amazing. Especially the long stride. I hope you walked like this all day.

  4. Love the pose, I've done this a few times, but often get distracted by other things.
