Sketching goofiness is like Xanax for me (with less side effects.) Hoping maybe a grin, giggle, groan or even an eye-roll will take your mind off stuff for a minute.

SkADaMo Say 9

November 9, 2018

time machine

This has been a week for the books, to put it mildly.

So, as I was sketching today’s SkADaMo prompt, “Time Machine,” I had a thought. If I were able to crawl into this time machine (scoot the hedgehog over a bit,) what would I do? Would I go back into the past? Maybe tweak a few things for a different outcome? Or would I speed on to the future, so I could dial into a time more to my liking, if one existed? But then I thought, maybe it’s best to just stay in the present. In fact, MORE in the present. More aware. That’s where your real power to effect change is. Right?

Yeah so, I guess I’ll stay right here.

As is usually the case, I am announcing the SkADaMo sketch challenge at the very last minute. Why mess with tradition, right?

So, I started this challenge back in 2011 as more of a personal challenge and gave it the name SkADaMo as a  spoof on all the other funny November challenge acronyms such as NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and, what used to be a November challenge PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month), now Storystorm, which now takes place in January.

I even jokingly made a badge, thinking I would be the only participant. But lo and behold, several other wonderful artists, doodlers and sketchers threw their hats, or pencils into the mix.

So please feel free to join in again or for the first time this year.

SKADAMO RULES:

“What are the rules?” You may ask.

1. THERE ARE NO RULES. NO SIGN UP. NO REGISTRATION. NO GIVEAWAYS OR GUEST POSTERS.  No regulations, themes, websites or anything else resembling organization.  Just lots of sketching, camaraderie and hopefully a ton of inspiration and craft honing! Oh, I did throw together a list of prompts this year, as you may have noticed above. Please use them if you have a mind to.

SkADaMoers are scoff-laws and Mavricks! (Actually, the truth is I’m just not that organized. Did I mention that?) The only code we live by this month is SKETCH! SKETCH! SKETCH! Sketch everyday from November 1 to November 30, or at least try to.

Even if you’re unable to sketch every single day, by golly you will have tried and you’ll have more sketches in your sketchbook at the end of November than you might have otherwise. So, there’s that!

2. Go ahead and hasthtag #SkADaMo and/or #SkADaMo2018

3. Grab one of these badges, below, if you’d like and use it as you see fit.

4. Most important rule of all… Enjoy! This is fun!

Sketch on my fellow SkADaMoers, (should there be any besides myself this year!)
