A Sketch A Day

BY GRAEME BORLAND
@ VOL 38 ON JUN 06, 2019

Graeme Borland is a game developer who typically spends his workday writing code. However a few years ago, Graeme felt the need to keep connected to his love of video game environments, so he started a project called Sketch of the Day where he attempts to draw a different, fantastical scene every single day. Watch this inspiring 20x20 talk to see and hear more about this ongoing project, what he discovered throughout the process, and how he's been able to keep this up for more than 2,000 days in a row.

Graeme's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 38, on June 6 2019, at the Park Theatre.
