This Guy Is Drawing Fan Art Every Day For A Year And It's Awesome
So many sketches, so little time.
Australian visual artist Greg O’Regan has challenged himself to watch a film, and then sketch an iconic moment from that film, every day for one whole year.
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
O'Regan's inspiration comes from American comedian Doug Benson and his challenge to watch 365 films in 365 days.
Return to Oz (1985)
"I heard comedian Doug Benson say [he] was trying to watch 365 movies in a year as a self imposed challenge," O'Regan told BuzzFeed. "Then I thought 'well if I was to try that too then at least the doodles and sketches I do could be inspired by something different each day.'"
So far, O'Regan has sketched characters from iconic films like Psycho (1960), The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (2014), and Back To The Future Part II (1989).
Back to the Future Part II (1989)
"I started on the 21st of October with Back to the Future Part II. Seemed appropriate."
But when it comes to how O’Regan decides what to watch next, “There’s no rhyme or reason there. If I haven’t seen the movie or haven’t seen it in awhile, I jump in.”
Each image is sketched by hand and then coloured in digitally.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
"I do it on a Surface Pro 3 using sketchbook pro to quickly sketch them out which feels very intuitive, and Manga Studio 5 to colour. I want it to look quite traditional though. I guess traditional as in pencils, coloured pencils, ink, loose lines sort of style," O'Regan said.
So far, O'Regan has watched and sketched 28 films. You can check them all out on Instagram.

Doug Benson is a proud American comic. An earlier version of this post mixed up the facts since we were so distracted by how freaking amazing all these sketches are.
