Could You Watch a Movie a Day Plus Do a Drawing For A Year Straight?

The buried UFO in The Thing - Artist Greg O'Regan Watched a Movie a Day Plus Did a Drawing For A Year Straight

That’s the question artist Greg O’Regan asked himself roughly a year ago.

And apparently, the answer was yes. That’s right, over the course of 365 days, O’Regan watched a movie every. single. day. and the drew a sketch (and occasionally a much more complete drawing) to represent each of the movies he watched. He didn’t limit himself to a specific genre, though after digging through his drawings we found 111 that we feel qualify as science fiction or genre blends of science fiction. Which is almost a third of the total. So the next time someone tries to mock you for liking science fiction, there’s a lot of it out there. A lot.

To view all the pictures he did, head over to Greg O’Regan’s Instagram page. We’ll embed out five favorite here, but it’s worth taking the time to look through everything he has to offer.
