"Do something every day that scares you".
I don't necessarily subscribe to this motto. I wish I could, but I usually run far, far away from things that scare me. But today I did something that scares me, so to speak. I'm confident enough to publish my photos and submit them to other websites for challenges and contests, but as far as doodles or drawings...well, I'm so inept at it that to actually have a bunch of people look at it frightens me. But I took the plunge and submitted one of my doodles. Illustration Friday is another website that offers themed weekly challenges. There are some seriously talented people out there! But the environment feels welcoming enough for doodlers to partake in the fun without any judgment of being a 'real' artist or not. For some reason though (fear again?), I'm not publishing it to this blog but to another page on my website. You can see it here.
