EDM 246 - Draw "October"


In my daily joural, I often do little cartoony drawings of myself doing my daily things. Or doing things that are not done daily, but that I want to remember. I don't usually offer them up for public consumption because they are very personal. But this one seemed appropriate for the week's challenge. It was my attempt to chronicle some of my favorite things about fall - the crisp, blue sky, the brilliant voluptuous pumpkins, my new beret that my friend bought me on her trip to France. And, in most Octobers, the fabulous colors of the turning leaves. This year, we had a record warm September which prevented the leaves from changing color. Then October plunged us suddenly into the freezing temperatures. The green leaves simply froze on the trees, and hung there soddenly. It's very weird looking. So this is me, walking home through the fall weather, wearing my new beret, and looking forward to flannel jammies and hot cocoa.

I love it! It's extremely adorable, and I like the different versions of the pumpkins too ^^ because we all know that not every pumpkin is happy throughout the season right?

I love your drawing, Autumn is my favourite time of year but living in Bali I don't get to see all the pretty autumn colours. Thank you for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate it.

Wow! I can feel the movement in your journal and oh, wow, I wish I could do such great work. I am getting very nervous about the whole Creativity Every Day in November... though I am creative every day... just... youch... can I possibly measure up?!

Thank you for the inspiration!

I just love seeing you in the drawing. Are you wearing the glove you drew. You have inspired me to do some similar drawings. I used to do people drawings on my daily walk and stopped. I'd love to get back to them.
lots of love from susan in australia
