An Illustrated Message to My Inner Critic

So as many of you know I have been doing Nanowrimo this month and doing so along with many many other November obligations. Needless to say I am very behind and am beginning to lose the battle against my inner critic. One of the best Birthday gifts I got this month,(materialistically possibly in my whole life) is the Ipad. Now I've used the Iphone Brushes App before, which I love to make sketches with.

But this time with a bigger screen I decided to draw a message to my inner critic with my fingertip on the app Sketchbook Pro for Ipad. You can guess at which finger I used and please 'Warning', excuse the humor as I do generally maintain a rather 'clean' site, so this piece may be considered a bit too graphic. It is also a dummy mock up sketch for a piece I'm making with ink on paper right now too that I will show you next. I've been pretty sick for a week now so this has kept me distracted.Here is the result:

dude, you did this on the ipad?! that's so cool. keep up the work on your writing! i cant wait to hear more about it.

soooooo nice. I can't believe this is from an ipad.

You should do tons and tons of blind contour drawings. That always destroys my inner critic in every medium and it makes everything better.

i am your inner critic, how dare you try to keep me down...Who do you think you are anyway?! I will just pretend that the single finger means I am number 1 which we all know to be true...right?
