Art Every Day Month

I had been thinking over the past few weeks that as I wrap up my applications for graduate school, I want to try to use the time I had been spending on that for something creative and relaxing. Then I saw a comment by my friend Drew, about an “Art Every Day Month” challenge for November – something akin to the NaNoWriMo concept. Knowing she was going to give it a try, and since I was already thinking of trying to focus on creativity this month, I decided I would join as well! I am not going to put any pressure on myself with this, though – it’s really just more for fun.

I just so happened to have already started working on some creative projects over the weekend, so I have a couple of items to bring myself up to speed (since it is already November 4th) . I don’t have anything for November 1st, so I will start with this ink drawing that I began on November 2nd:

The start of an ink drawing I am making of a Thoreau quote

 (drawn with my TWSBI Mini, using Noodler’s Bernanke Black ink, in a Moleskine sketchbook)

I know, I didn’t finish Thoreau’s name yet, haha – I wasn’t sure of the spelling at the time, so I decided to wait. Obviously I’ve looked it up since, so that should be all set whenever I next upload it’s progression. This is definitely still a work in progress – you will see some significant development before it is done!

I have some items for yesterday and today, too, but I don’t have photo’s taken yet so I am going to post them along with tomorrow’s update. If any of you are planning to also try out this challenge, let me know where your blog is so I can add it to my links!

  1. I am such a Thoreau fan… sometimes I call him HDT as if I am in some private transcendentalist pencil making club with him. (see what I mean, I know too much!) Anyway – I love what you made here and am grateful to know you are participating in art every day month. I’ve been doing it for years and it has been incredible.

    • Haha, that’s awesome! Thank you for the encouragement, Julie – I am looking forward to continuing to work on it because it is an inspiring quote that really fits my life right now. Are you also doing the AEDM challenge this year? If so, what is the link to your updates?
