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:
(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!
