Art by the inch  
Has anyone heard of ? It's NaNoWriMo for art. Anyone care to join me?

I'm going to try and overcome two obstacles - thinking the finished result has to have a point and thinking it has to be good. I'll probably make some cards, and maybe more bookmarks (I made some with funky foam recently, I'll post a picture when I've access to the interbets at home), but I'll also try some reasonless stuff. (But what do I do with it afterwards? Throw it out?). This will also be an opportunity to practise doing things badly—measuring progress in inches really does mean it's about quantity, not quality.

I might make some lj icons too:

Should I buy extra user pic space?

Oops, I already have - my finger slipped, honest!

Enough about art, how about a meme...

Your Hair Should Be Purple

Intense, thoughtful, and unconventional.
You're always philosophizing and inspiring others with your insights.

I didn't fake it!

You get 15 userpics if you have a paid account.. I think that is plenty...

But then I wouldn't have been able to add this penguin! (Let's ignore the fact that I could have deleted another icon to do it)

Ooo! Lots of pretty!
There's a lot I haven't seen in use though. I think I'll be the same with ones I add. But even if I use 16 it's justified, isn't it?

Ah, that's a good use. I have no such excuse.

eek! I got purple too when I did the same memequiz. Maybe you're right — we are the same! Or maybe I'm just impersonating somebody of the opposite sex. Urck.

I think I'm going to change my name to David.

There are so many Davids, another one won't look too out of place. Although, if that then leaves your name available, maybe I'll take that; it's nice and not-too-common at all! Just name swapping though; I've got very little else to offer, and I suspect you might be very happy with what you already have.

Join me.... join me...

I'm starting now because I'm motivated now. I don't want to risk it running out by November.

I started thinking about ideas for November, but then decided that the idea was to get you to do stuff, so why wait? I intend counting October and November separately so I'll have a November only count and a November+October count.

Note gratuitous use of different icons in comments - see, I am using them </self-justification>
