Sketchblog

A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

Bunch of doodles and coloring samples from the ArtSkills double-ended Brush-tip Marker review. I usually only test a few singles of a marker, but it’s nice to have a few more colors to play with sometimes. Limited palette is always a nice exercise in experimentation and compromise.

NaNoWriMo 2021 cover

Wanted to doodle a cover for this year’s project since I think this is the closest I’ve ever come to the spirit of the event, despite 17 prior years participating.

2021 NaNoWriMo Calendar

2021 NaNoWriMo calendar

Happy October!

Historically, October 1st was NaNoWriMo website and forum reset day. This was back when NaNo wasn’t as active in the off season and the site had some ancient infrastructure that required annual purging of data to save on space and bandwidth. These days, NaNo is pretty much active yearround and its technical infrastructure was overhauled a few years ago, so the site no longer requires annual resets.

As such, October 1st isn’t as relevant anymore, but it’s still the day I aim to have these calendars finished by. Happy NaNo prep and panic month! And cheers to the photographers of the stock used in this year’s calendar: Zhen Hu, Trent Erwin, and Aaron Burden.
