30 second drawing workshop

Long overdue post. When i was in Philippines July2013-Jan2014, i met 98B, an artists collective from Manila and i always wanted to do this drawing workshop but in 30seconds. I picked 30 scenarios to draw mostly from environmental to human rights issues and play 'Short music for short people' album. A 30 seconds punkrock songs for each drawings and i compile them into a zine called 1,2,3,4! for this session.

Thought process before the workshop/session:
98 B x Shiekoreto 30 second drawing jam (the workshop concept and process)
-30 second drawing jam to punkrock music (because life is too short, draw your short attention span)
-30 second drawings will be compiled into a zine
- the name of zine is 1234! (Philippine version)
   (materials A4 papers (provided-Shieko buy) x bring own pen, pencil, Sharpie,markers,etc)

30 sec drawing/doodles could be the artwork of the century or maybe just a simplest expression in a shortest time given,
because everyone like sweet and short :)

- few sessions of 30second drawing exercise (30 drawing sessions)
-suggested themes, only reveal 1 by 1 during workshop:
-1st draw cowboy/cowgirl with pencil (until the punk rock music finish) (warming up level)
