Daily painting challenge and creative exercises. Collected from all over the place or just created or edited to suit our needs. I approach work challenges with less fear and more playfully; I'm more open to seeing things in new and unexpected ways

#018 DPC: First contact aka meeting an alien prep. (could you ever be ready?👽)

What do you do if you encounter an alien? It’s obviously fairly unlikely, but nothing is impossible—after all, you can’t spell meet without ET. If you meet a lost dog or cat in your backyard, you probably know what to do, right? But what if it’s

#017 DPC: What if the world would work how I want?

Ahoj Scatchers! Today we will have so much fun. Creativity is a very important word in our artistic paths. Not all people are born with a love for art and creative thinking. And many people would even argue that art and craft are skills not necessary but these skills are

#016 DPC: Using action verbs to activate an idea

Ahoj Scatchers! Welcome back to another daily exercise (almost daily - ups, sometimes it just doesn't work out☺️). Today we will "steal" an exercise more from the designers' world. But I'm pretty sure it will help us and we will improve our skills once again. Alex F. Osborn, who became

#015 DPC: The secret power of sketchnoting (sexy brain)

Ahoj Scatchers! Oopsies, I'm here with a later exercise. Did have a nice bike ride on an MTB track yesterday. Came home quite late and whole muddy. You would need to see that picture. But totally worth it. Today we will be exploring the power of sketchnoting. You are asking

#014 DPC: Let's have a coffee aka the coffee day exercise

Ahoj Scatchers! So another day passed by and I'm here with the next exercise for you. And now, admit, who loves coffee☕ here (or tea)? Yeah, I thought so🎯. I'm a coffee lover by myself but recently I'm trying to drink less. Too much of a good thing. Today's exercise

#013 DPC: Giving order to chaos or doodly doodly daah

Ahoj Scatchers! Welcome back to our daily exercise. I had a nice long bike ride today and tried to think about what should we practice today. Sometimes we can feel tired, exhausted and we just don't have the mood to do anything extra. When there is no motivation, well, usually

#012 DPC: Find the hidden gem and power up your imagination

Ahoj, fellow Scatchers (Yep, we are pirates in Czech, so we greet each other Ahoj)! I've got a great story to tell ya. "Once upon a time, there was a secret island in the middle of the Lost Sea. It was said, that there is hidden a huge treasure -

#011 DPC: The vase/faces exercise to mess with your head

Oopsie. I'm sorry my favourite Scatchers for the delayed post. I had a hard weekend so didn't manage to write you one yesterday. But I'm back and bringing you a new exercise. So I will just stop the annoying blah-blah and let's dive into that. Learning to draw has many

#010 DPC: New product creation exercise

Today we will have a very interesting exercise. I have discovered it in the Creative Thinker's Exercise Book. Piece of cake for a graphic designer. But we are not designers, probably, most of us.  We will be creating a new product. Maybe something you always wanted but never saw anywhere?

#009 DPC: Training your mind to make visual connections

Today we will have a lot of fun with crazy things. We will combine impossible. Maybe we will even predict the future with alien objects 😂! This exercise forces your brain to make visual links that you wouldn't otherwise see. By pushing you outside of your comfort zone, you will be

#008 DPC: One liner - fun, quick and impossible to mess up

One-liner or continuous line drawing is a classic in the sea of drawing exercises. It's really fun, quick and you can't mess it up, plus your art will always be neat and cool. Unless you have still problems with Wingardium. And you are asking what are we going to practice

#007 DPC: Let the paper decide what you will draw - Entopic Graphomania

Yeah, yeah I know you are just like: "What the heck is the entrolkfmganj?" Let's say it's a game, a type of exercise based on a Surrealist game. When you want to draw something, you just go, grab a paper or tablet and draw whatever idea you have in your
