Not sure what to draw? Here’s a list of 100 things to start off with.

100 things to draw

I’ve been thinking a lot about drawing these days, and a lot of it is spent wondering about what to draw (raise your hand if you feel the same way!) So I did what an organized person would do – I made a list. At first I hit 50. Then 80. By the time I was done, I had about a list of 100 things to draw that must be shared (see update below!) So for those who need a little inspiration on what to draw next, you can now download a small PDF of the list I made. (The preview image here is just part of it, but you can see a full preview of the file at the left hand side of the blog.)

Feel free to spread it around and send it to those who needs it!

UPDATE: In my haste of putting out the list, there’s some laughable typos and things that are plain wrong! What the heck are “Mosters”?? (#57) & toads and spiders are NOT insects! (#46) They’re reptiles and arachnids respectively!


1000 things to draw!

Thanks to all the feedback out there, I’ve launched a new website called 1000 Things to Draw that will blow your mind further! This tool will generate a random scenario for you to draw, and you can purchase a PDF that you can bring around with you to play with. CLICK HERE to go to 1000 Things to Draw!

  1. this list is perfect. i remember being in art school and thinking if i had to draw one more set of hands or fruit bowls, i might die. i haven’t drawn anything in a long time so i think i’ll start with your list. thank you!

  2. Well, regarding “Mosters”, in Danish a moster is your mother’s sister. So I’ve got these images of auntie monsters in my head now…
