PRESENTED ON MAR 24, 2016
IN SANTA CRUZ, CA @ VOL 9

Darrin Caddes (@unclewillard) is a father and vice president of corporate design for Plantronics, so his days were already pretty full when he decided at the start of 2013 to take on a personal creative challenge - to create a drawing every day for a year.

His sketches are funny, sad, inventive, and great and three years in (and still going strong!) his "Daily Doodle" project illustrates the power of a regular creative habit.

The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag]

BY PETER EXLEY
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 01, 2015

“Research has illustrated that 90% of us will do almost all of the drawings we will make in our lifetime before the age of 10. That’s the threshold we pass when someone tells us that we aren't good at art or math or science.”

In The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag] from PechaKucha Night Batavia’s first volume, Speaker Peter Exley discusses the importance of thoughtful and deliberate sketches. We all spent time in our youth expressing ourselves through drawing. At some point, many of us turned our attentions to things less creative. Peter did not. Here’s why.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.
