Head gear required.
Boredom is a common problem.
So far, my character has drawn
bread, a gloved hand, coins, shoes, socks,
matches, needle and thread, stocking cap,
can opener, toothbrush and comb.
My character has seen railroad tracks, a
park bench, a pop can, and people.
The phrases are random, perhaps things
remembered or overheard,(mostly because
the real me thinks they are fun) but have
eerily made a certain kind of sense
as I chose which image would be
paired with which phrase.
I say it's eerie because I collected the random
phrases for a month or so prior to IFJM, and then
at the last minute, changed my mind
about who my character would be.

|Yes, that's bread...|
Again this year, I invite you to guess who/what
my character is. I may offer hints as the
time goes by, or maybe not. The images
are the main clues. I'm not planning on
creating a 'story,' but we'll see what happens.
As in the past, I will probably post once
a week, perhaps more. Not every day.
Days one and two, the adventure begins...
I enjoy your comments very much...please
feel free to leave your ideas, critiques,
and guesses about my character!

If you've ever wished that you could
get into the habit of drawing every day,
creating a Fake Journal might be for you!
Every year Roz Stendahl has been inviting
us...challenging us to join her in
creating a fake journal. Her official International
Fake Journal Month blog explains the
project, and gives helpful suggestions
for how to proceed.
You don't have to write a story.
Thank goodness. That's not my strong point!
There's also a private Facebook page, where
you can choose to share your images.
You can create a blog for your Fake journal,
or share it on your existing blog, or you can even
choose not to post your work online at all.
It's up to you.
Come up with an idea of a 'character' that
you could 'pretend' to be, just during the time
that you're drawing (or painting or collaging)
in your Fake Journal. Keep it simple in concept
so you won't be overwhelmed. Make it doable
so you can get your page done each day in
less than an hour. Last year, I was a
person who collects toys, and I drew a
different toy each day. That's it!
It's a fun project. And it really helps get
you in the habit of drawing each day.
Notice. Record. Draw. Paint. Listen.
Write it down. Observe. Create.
IFJM starts in April. Just 30 days.
