NaNoWriMo Illustrations

The blue bic pen returns...

As I mentioned a few posts ago, November has been consumed by the beast that is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  These drawings come from my current story writing endeavor.  These characters are minor to the story, but fun to draw.

The first is the light keeper, the sole producer of light. The second is one of the running men who populate the entirely dark world that exists beyond the edge of the world.  They can only travel in groups since their scope of vision is limited to the bulbs stuck to their heads.

Both are examples of how it's possible to go too far with a drawing and would have been much better if I had just stopped earlier.  But I just couldn't help myself.  It was too fun.  :)

After this I promise I'll stop posting blue bic drawings.
(But they're just so much fun!)


  1. No reason to stop the ballpoint drawings! I like 'em!
    That light-keeper guy has one CREEPY ear-hole, though.

  2. @ Jenny: Thanks! I'm a fan of the scribbles. :)

    @ Sara: I probably won't be able to resist the call of the ball point pen. Until it runs out, which ought to be any day now at this rate... ;)
    -- As for the ear... all the better to hear you with, my dear...
