I don't make them. Ever. They would really just be another thing to make myself feel bad about because I'm not good at habits. I don't have any addictions, there is absolutely nothing that I do every single day except brush my teeth. I have no rituals, there is nothing that I "can't leave home without" - I often forget my cell phone, keys, camera. But I decided this year to make one:
Kelly challenged me to do a page a day, so I'm going to try...I mean I'm going to do it. In the words of Yoda "Do or do not. There is no try." That's my 1/1/11 page. :)

And I've decided that instead of Manga, I'm just going to draw my day as a comic book in whatever way makes me happy. Manga is kind of serious because the Japanese are very serious people as a whole. Also, I HATE the way they make eyes. If you want to just draw a smudge of a nose and a line for a mouth, that's fine, but I want to add color to my pages and Manga eyes are open lines. I've been trying to make eyes Manga-ish but closing the lines and it just hasn't been working for me. So I'm going a different way for now and maybe I'll be ready to draw Manga later.Oh, one more thing (I swear!). Here's December's calendar all filled out:I don't have January's ready yet, but I'll post it when I do! I'm trying to wait for my next play date with Kelly. Instead of using patterned paper, we're planning to paint our own paper and cut it up for the days!

  1. Yay for developing your own style. Love it. Look foward to seeing it coloured.
