SkADaMo 2013 – Days 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Posted on November 5, 2013 by in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

I have committed myself to making one sketch a day for the month of November, as well as coming up with a picture book idea every day. Even if it’s not November, and even if it’s not sketching, committing yourself to doing anything once a day for a month is a great way to get over some hurdles and learn a lot about yourself. At least, I think so.

Here are days 1-5 of the sketches.

1. Snail Pet Store.



2. Bird has a long conversation with Caterpillar3---Bird-caterpillar-friends-2-web

3. Caterpillar’s first flying lesson




4. Sick Day for Bear  4---Sick-day-for-bear-web

5. Unexpected Doppleganger


These first few were the hardest–trying to let all expectations and pressures go. Also, I quickly learned that I cannot start sketching after 8 PM if I don’t want to end up in tears.

    Is that a scuba-diving porcupine?!

      …It’s a hedgehog. But, it is scuba-diving and it does have spikes, so you are close enough.
