AEDM2017, Day 21 Starthief

Art Everyday Month is an artistic challenge established by Leah Koildas at her blog Creative Every Day. She explains it pretty well on a page dedicated to the Challenge. Essentially, those participating set themselves the goal of producing some one creative work each day for the entire month of November. In some respects it is like Inktober, which I opted out of due to a lot of scheduling conflicts...but maybe next year I can do both challenges. So, for this year, for Creative every Day Month, I will be posting fresh new drawings and other artwork here at my personal blog. some of these will get statted-up as critters for our Hereticwerks blog--you didn't really think otherwise did you?--but some will be just for the sake of trying some technique out, or to do something I haven't done in a while.

Today I did this...

Starthief. This one named itself even before I finished the first couple of lines in my sketchbook. This was another very insistent, spontaneous piece that flowed into existence before I finished my coffee. I will most certainly be creating some picture books in the near future...whether I planned on it or not, apparently. I'm enjoying this challenge immensely as it has gotten me outside my comfort zone and trying loads of new things, or things I've held off on doing for far too long. Thank you all for dropping by, commenting, liking on Facebook, and so on; the positive feedback has been wonderful and it is much appreciated!


  1. When I saw this, I thought "it's in the stars." Lovely, and I like that you worked outside your comfort zone. I think that's what AEDM is all about.

    1. Thanks! This was a fun piece, once I got over sweating the details and just started drawing. Once I drew the first star everything just flowed into place. I plan on doing a few more like this soon. And I agree with you about the AEDM challenge really being about taking a few risks and accepting some challenges to try new things and get out of the old comfort zone. I have thoroughly enjoyed this year's AEDM so very, very much!
