The Fett

I entered a contest over at the Writer's Journey.  For an extra entry you have to do something creative, so I did a quick sketch of Boba Fett.

I know I haven't posted in a few days, but I'm working on larger projects and nothing was completed to show, but I'm still trying to set aside at least an hour a day to draw or paint or doodle, or whatever.

Here's the Boba Fett sketch.

The beginning. MORE!!! I guess.

I made a resolution to myself to start drawing again.  After pretty much taking all of 2011 off from my creative side I decided I needed to push myself to get back into it.  I really blame Facebook, well Facebook games, anyways for my slacking.  So I'm trying to set aside at least an hour a day to draw,  doodle, whatever.

One of my favorite underground artists, Carrie McNinch, you may have heard of her, or not.  She's behind such classics as the Assassin and the Whiner, You Don't get there from here, and her own graphic novel, I Want Everything to Be Alright.

It's this graphic novel that really inspired me to do what I'm planning on doing.  I read it a while back, but Carrie pretty much took a year off from drawing and then to get back into it she forced herself to put out a page a day. She's one of the pioneers of the autobiographical comic, and while there not all gems, it's a pretty interesting read.  Plus Carrie is a great artist.  Well worth the read.

So that's my goal to draw something, anything, everyday.  And I plan on posting it here.  Will it be gold?  Most decidedly not, but I'm hoping it starts me in the right direction.
