November has become a being feared and revered. She is a bitch goddess, relentless, demanding and often leaves me in a state of awe and gratitude. As I embark on my second Art Every Day Month (AEDM) and my fourth National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), I beg of you to be patient with my unanswered emails, my confusing and surreal tweets, my angry status updates. For AEDM this year, I'm finishing my Sketckbook project, or rather starting it. I'm not painting this year, or rebinding. Just a sketch a day that might be inked, or might stay pencil. My theme is "Thing Found Under Car Seats." It is purposely light. I am making it surreal, hopefully funny. But first few pages are the straight man jokes. Here are the cover and first page.
