It’s November first, and for about five minutes today, I toyed with the idea of participating in NaNoWriMo. Then reality took over and gave me a firm shake. I am exhausted from the 3 all-nighters I pulled this weekend, Hubster won’t be home until after very late tonight, and the kids need to get homework done. And of course the day was spent on catching up on all those items I needed to do this weekend but couldn’t get around to because I was working hell-bent-for-leather on a volunteer project.
But I still want to do something, and there is this other idea I’ve sort of been toying with – drawing a cartoon a day. Nothing fancy, just something to boost my cartooning skills and get me even more into the habit of drawing daily.
So for this month, I’m going to attempt to do PerCaDraMo, Personal Cartoon Drawing Month. The goal is to draw 30 quick cartoons, none of them taking more than 15 minutes to complete. I hope to avoid using a pencil, would prefer to draw on paper, but will cartoon on the iPad when necessary to complete my goal. Like I did tonight. Here is the month’s first cartoon, a self-portrait I like to call, “Is It Time To Freak Out Yet?”
