I don't think I have a lot to say today. But we'll see.
So since I am firmly rooted into the habit of drawing everyday, I figured I would share in the annual Inktober movement, in which people do an ink drawing every day.
I decided to do a variant that allows any medium, so long as I draw every day. I intend to follow the "official Inktober" prompts for each day (seen below).
Having said all that, I somehow managed to start out a day behind, I just finished Day 2. The theme was mindless, which pulled up images of monsters like the Hulk or a raging werewolf (I have a thing for werewolves, I think), but that seemed uninteresting to me as far as something to draw today.
Mindless by Samax Amen Crayola markers in my Big Black Sketchbook.
I feel like most of the anger, entitled ideas, political arguments, and outrage I run into everyday (even when I agree with it) is being spouted mindlessly. Like the person in this drawing, we are just spilling what is being poured into us.
We can do better.
Anyways, not the greatest drawing ever, or the most inspirational message you will get today.
You should go back and look at the piece and email I shared yesterday.
If you want to stop doing things mindlessly and embrace mindfulness (especially if you want to take control of your life and change the results you're getting), you should listen to this video and try what he is sharing.
I need your help to start a revolution. Give me two weeks of your time and I'll give you a key to unlock anything you've ever wanted to achieve. Cost: Nothing but your honesty.

======= ABOUT MIKE SHREEVE =======
Michael B. Shreeve started The No Pants Project in 2017. He has made it his mission to help creatives build businesses that provide them with both the financial and lifestyle freedom they desire. By the time Mike was 18 he had moved 28 times. The perennial "new kid" he quickly discovered that empathy played a critical role in developing relationships quickly. Growing up, he often spent summers in Arizona with his grandfather. The two had a special bond, and Mike decided he wanted to be a math and physics teacher, like his role model. Mike did well in math, and after high school he completed a year of college in hopes of pursuing his degree. Unfortunately, he ran out of the necessary funds to complete his education. Shortly after his studies were halted, and through a series of poor life choices, he found himself homeless living in a tent in Washington Park near downtown Portland, Oregon. In an act of desperation, Mike taught himself how to generate an income writing blog posts at his local library. Within 2 weeks time, with the gracious help of a kind librarian, he was able to generate enough money from his freelance writing to get an apartment and leave the streets forever. 18 months later he was earning 6-figures per year with his creative business serving clients from all over the world like SUCCESS Magazine, Mel Robbins, Russell Brunson, and more. For a decade, Mike's freelancing business flourished. He had graduated from writing mere copy and was coaching, marketing, and building the businesses of big name clients with multi-million dollar companies. At this point, he considered leaving the industry altogether to retire early and live out the rest of his days as a minimalist in the woods. As luck would have it, a certain influencer in his life gave him a piece of advice that changed his direction. She told him that freelancing had given him much, and it was time to give back. And that's when The No Pants Project was born. Mike decided to create a program that could teach people to live with freedom, abundance, and the ability to genuinely help the world. He knew that he could do more than just affect his own family, and he believed that to experience good, it was necessary to turn outward and help other people break this same limiting cycle in their own lives. Mike's favorite part of The No Pants Project is seeing his students' wins and success stories. You can hear more about some of those students here: http://www.thenopantsprojectblog.com/...

Whether it's a comedian who wants to make people laugh on social media, or a small business that is making ads to get more customers, or a mental health professional who helps battered women work through trauma, I love helping people meet their goals with comic strips.
