One Drawing Daily

The blog called One Drawing Daily came to my attention recently when I visited my friend Dakota – he was proudly displaying a beautiful drawing. I noted the link to the blog to visit later and hopped over to visit my pal Sammy. He also had a lovely drawing displayed on his blog. I decided my next visit should be to the blog One Drawing Daily and I saw a few more familiar faces!

Thomas of One Drawing Daily, who is studying to be an architect, set himself the challenge of doing at least one drawing a day to improve his skills. He began on 9th September 2014 and when he drew me on 29th April 2015, he had reached number 472 – well above his target!

I’m so pleased with the sketch of me that I’ve framed it. He mentions in his post that it can be a bit tricky drawing white fur with a black pen, so he’s used minimal lines. I love the result, he’s even caught the healthy shine on my nose!

Thank you very much, Thomas.

I believe he’s still taking requests for doing drawings, but has quite a long list now.

Don’t forget!

You have until the end of May to enter the draw to win a copy of ‘Someone To Look Up To’ – read ‘Spotlight on Blanche aka The Princess‘ for details of how to enter.

See you next Wednesday!


Thomas has a new website to showcase his art where you can commission a piece: Portfolio of Thomas Clausen

There is still the possibility of a free drawing – instructions in the blog post Get a Free Drawing.


  1. That is a wonderful sketch–you definitely need to keep it framed and on the wall. Maybe I’ll have my biped see if he will do one of me, but being a Shepherd-Mastiff mix, I’m not nearly as good looking as you! Maybe I’ll see if my biped will buy me a plane ticket to come see you!!!

    • Thank you, I’m really pleased with it. I’m sure you’d look very handsome in a sketch.
      I hope you have more luck with getting a plane ticket out of your bipeds than I have with mine – they always say no when I ask for one to cross the Atlantic to visit pals!

  2. Absolutely love the likeness Clowie – he really has captured the detail – to me it’s the eyes – absolutely spot on! Happy #woofwoofwednesday ! 🙂

    • Thank you, I’m really pleased with it and he’s done great sketches of some of my pals.
      Enjoy #woofwoofwednesday!

  3. You look BEAUTIFUL, C. Not just the shiny nose, but that smile! Perfect! What a talent!

    Love and licks,

  6. Dogs who are one color in general are more difficult, but white is real tough. Your drawing came out real nice.

  15. Very nice drawing of you, Clowie! We’ve also been seeing these on different blogs, but keep reading how busy he is so haven’t dropped by yet to see if we could get in (plus with 5 pets, how do I select who to have done?).

    What a beautiful drawing. I’m happy for you to be a model now, Clowie.

  19. Wow this sketch is wonderful! It is hard to imagine that the only think used to sketch a white dog was a black pen. The architect, and artist at One Drawing Daily is truly gifted. I am sure it certainly helps that, you, Clowie, are the stunning model. 🙂
