Challenge #1 for November
JD has challenged me to participate in NaNoDrawMo2011... aka... draw-fifty-or-more-pictures-in-November.

According to the Flickr group...

Inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), NaNoDrawMo is a personal challenge to push would-be artists beyond the bounds of comfortable "when I have time" practice for one month and see what happens.

Loosely defined goals are for each participant to produce 50 individual works/drawings between Nov 1 and Nov 30. You can always do more than 50 if you've got it in you! That's just the minimum everyone should be shooting for.
I'm not an artist... in the sense of someone who draws / illustrates... I'm a photographer. But I am willing to give it a go... and I have a purpose for the Moleskine Cahier Olly printed for me.

I have been inspired by data visualisation and the emerging field of graphic facilitation (read this for more).. and want to improve on what basic skills I have.

I also want to document my second challenge...

Challenge #2 for November
Inspired by the idea that change happens one step at a time... I am going to try to change my behaviour one step at a time. I'm going to document each change in a NaNoDrawMo2011 picture.

Change #1... I'm going to stop drinking milk in my tea (I never took sugar in my tea).
