A Month of Blogs (Nov Blog 30/30)

30 Nov


We did it. I won’t take credit alone, since everyone who commented on these posts all month long really helped me keep the momentum up. Some lessons gleaned along the way:

– Drawing is fun! As a kid, I always liked to do it. I wasn’t great at it but I took Art in high school and wasn’t awful. But then I chose Guitar, and I stuck with guitar, and somewhere along the way I dropped the idea that I had any proclivity for visual arts. Weird how that happens. I am not claiming I have any now, but I enjoy doodling, so that’s good to know.

– I could have typed prose and thoughts and whatnot, but for whatever reason, I took this month as a reason to doodle.

– My handwriting is, well…it’s mine.

– It’s nice to do something analog. Notebook paper. Pens. No screen, even for 15 minutes at a time. More less is better.

– Doing a Thing every day for a month is…hard. I’ll admit it, a couple of days I’d neglect to post my drawings (or they weren’t quite done yet or whatever), and I’d post 3 in a row at a time. I make the rules so it wasn’t cheating, but it was interesting to see the mid-month slump and subsequent sprint to the finish line.

– Doing a Thing every day for a month is satisfying! I got back in touch with why I love blogging. It’s good to have a record of your time. And…I don’t want to stop drawing things. Dan gave me a book called “How to Draw Almost Everything” so I’m basically set.

– And now? Now it’s time for a snack.
