To scribble is to let your creative energy flow mindlessly toward an adventurous and uncertain outcome, with the reckless abandon of the wind and a laugh.” –BZTAT
I love to scribble. It is something I do a lot, often on notes for boring meetings or on scraps of paper within my reach when I am wasting time. This drawing was a mess-up that I started doodling on, and the textures sorta made it not messed up anymore.
I do a lot of artwork that is not the clean finished look that is my typical “brand” – just for fun or just to experiment. This drawing is one of those artworks. I thought I would share another side of my process today.
In honor of my cat Okey whose “Gotcha Day” is October 30, I am making an artwork every day in October, and posting it here on my blog. As I have done with “drawing a day” activities in the past, each artwork will be available for bidding in an auction in the blog post dedicated to it.
Along with each artwork will be a “Thought for the Day” that will offer some kind of encouragement about overcoming challenges.
Okey has inspired a worldwide movement to bring awareness to the links between animal abuse, child abuse and domestic violence called: Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause. All of the proceeds for the auctions will go towards the Okey’s Promise: Celebrating the Human – Animal Bond project, which is my second Okey’s Promise public art project.
My recent Kickstarter fund raising campaign for the project fell short of its goal, so I have had to start over with the fund raising. You can contribute here if you would like to support the project outside of the auctions.
To make it a little more fun, I am going to have a special contest! Everyone who bids on one of the Okey’s October artworks here on the blog will be entered into a contest for a free artwork! You don’t have to win a bid, just make a bid. All bidders will be entered into a random drawing for a special artwork at the end of the month.
