One Week 100 People 2019


The week of April 8 through 12 is when people all over the world are trying to sketch 100 people within five days. They say a week, which is typically SEVEN days…but it is a five day challenge. I decided to try it. That would be an average of 20 people per day. Unfortunately, I had a hard time keeping up and finding the time during the week days to sketch people live.

The first day, I sketched a few people that inspired me in the Sktchy App. I also tried sitting in the Pioneer Place Mall in downtown Portland, Oregon, but it appeared to be a quiet day. I got in some quick sketches. Ended up with 21. That was a good start!

The second day I sketched my housemates.

I added a little watercolor and liked that a lot.

Day three I did a combination of live sketches in a restaurant and some from photos. That is now 40/100 at the end of Wednesday.

Day four I had to step it up and I had meetings all day long! I was snapping photos all day of coworkers and strangers so I could binge sketch that evening. Now 62/100.

The final day and I had 38 people to draw! I spent my lunch hour in the mall again. This time in the Roots Food Court at the Portland Roasting Coffee. The staff there are awesome. I reached my goal of 100 people by 10pm on Friday night.

The outcome of this challenge for me is a love of the spontaneous sketching of strangers and friends, and honing in on my ink skills.
