[If you want to learn more about the challenge and why it is beneficial, I encourage you to watch some of the videos on It will also give you a better idea of how long these challenges take to complete and how they should be completed.]

New Media Blitz is a challenge issued by the blogger Kien Nguyen, in which the artist or artist team has 7 days to create an image using any media they choose. The original challenge was to create one piece of art per day for 30 days, but now it is an ongoing challenge which any artist can join at anytime.

The main purpose of this blog is not only to show what artists have created, but also to offer artists an opportunity to share their techniques and were-to-find information.

I also wanted to give viewers a chance to learn from other people’s mistakes, so in most posts I have listed some common pitfalls that I have observed from other artists’ blogs.

Challenge to artists and non-artists alike: try drawing one line, any line, free-hand. You don’t have to post it or show anyone. But if you do, please tell me about it.

I’m not an artist, but I love drawing and I would love to see what the results are like.

Here’s a video tutorial explaining how to do the challenge:

The one line art is a new artistic challenge I’ve been working on over the last year. The challenge is to take any photo and draw only one line that creates the same image.

I’m interested in this project because it forces you to look at the lines, tones and colors already present in a photo. You have to see things differently. It helps me to see things in a new way.

I’ve been blogging about my progress on Tumblr [] where I post my own practice of the technique. I also post videos of other artists who are working on the challenge at different stages of their development here”>”>”>”>”>

“One line art” is a new drawing technique in which the artist uses only one line to create an entire picture. The results are often both clever and beautiful, and most of them were created by artists who never intended to draw that way.

Tutorials for this style of drawing are widely available on YouTube, so if you want to try it yourself, you can easily find people to guide you through the process.

Here are some links for tutorials on the subject:


The idea is to learn to draw a variety of lines in one go. It’s similar to doing one stroke calligraphy and a useful skill for when you want to draw a line but don’t have the patience to do it with lots of tiny strokes.

The challenge was inspired by a post on the Silk cordell blog about one stroke calligraphy (also called “one-stroke painting”). I love that blog, so I thought I’d give the challenge a go, seeing as I’m such an expert at drawing straight lines…

Here’s my first attempt:

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. I suppose it’s because I’ve been busy, but lately that’s changed.

The last year has been filled with so many changes and challenges, but all of them have gone well.

What does that mean? Here’s one line art.

It means that you can do anything you set your mind to. It means that if you set out to make something and don’t give up, you will eventually succeed.

It means that there are no excuses. If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

It means that if you have a dream, go after it and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

It means not stopping because someone else is doing better than you or because someone else can do it better than you.

You are in control of your own life. Start living it!

One Line Art is the process of creating a picture with a single line. This can be done in many ways and with many different materials. The challenge has been refined and brought to life by the work of David Fisher who has researched and experimented with this process for over 15 years.
