Cup 337 of 365. 4 May, 2017.


Prompt: work with a blindfold.

These were cups I drew on a whiteboard without looking. By day 337, if I couldn’t manage a decent approximation of a cup-drawing with my eyes shut, I should ask some VERY SERIOUS questions about how I had been spending my year.

What it did make me realise is that there’s a single-stroke method for drawing a mug, which hadn’t occurred to me until this point.

  1. Start at the base of the handle
  2. Sweep up in an S shape to draw the rim
  3. Drop a perpendicular at the intersection with the top of the handle
  4. Sweep in a U shape to complete the cup.

Best illustrated by the cup on the right, two down and two across.
