NaNoDrawMo 2013

3

What. Am. I. Thinking. I’m trying NaNoDrawMo again, though next year I might make it “Inktober” instead, too many holidays in November.

I’m going out of town (the country, no less), and I don’t have time for anything nowadays.

Then again I’ve been suffering from not creating since I started my new job in April, and I need to make it a priority again.

And I guess I love punishment. This time last year I was struggling to overcome the fact that I couldn’t maintain a freelance career or move into my dream career while keeping the lifestyle my family has become accustomed to. So I drew it.

Maybe this year I will just try to loosen up and focus on the drawing, not the completed, inked piece. I’ve yet to accomplish an entire month of works, maybe this year…?

    I’m very grateful that you sent out the call. And I especially love that you encouraged us to just draw and not worry about perfection.

      Yeah, I think I’m a member of that group, and actually, probably where I heard about it! I had so much trouble setting my image settings so they’d upload properly to the group – I wanted an even easier way to post, to reduce friction, so I started doing it this way: http://nanodrawmo.tumblr.com Also, 50 is too high a bar for me, lol, I’m happier with 30 (never even made it that far). I’m @stealingsand on Flickr, as well!
