And today is the start of Art Every Day Month. I was doing this long before Inktober. Inktober is a cool idea, however, you are restricted to ink. No markers, watercolor, etc. The nice thing about Art Every Day Month (AEDM) is I am free to choose whatever media strikes my fancy. I can just do sketches at a coffee shop, or life drawing class and it counts. I can show a photo of a work in progress that I did that day and it counts! The whole idea is to spend some time doing ANYTHING creative. I actually feel less stressed about AEDM. 😂
For those of you that want to try it, sign up here:
One way that I remember to fulfill AEDM, or even Inktober, is to put a daily reminder on my phone. Then the obnoxious red reminder is there until I remove it. Quite effective, actually.
So, here are some AEDM photos for you.
I did a quote this morning to keep my lettering practices going.
I also took a workshop with Leslie Wood and I finished a sketchbook with her technique. Liked it so much that I took a handmade Teesha style sketchbook that was going nowhere and reworked it. I took it apart and repainted the backgrounds. Reassembled it with good book binding thread and here it is waiting to be used.
