As it seems all the cool kids are doing this I thought that I would jump on the bandwagon and join in too ๐Ÿ™‚

10/30 characters sketched

10/30 characters sketched - Jay Faulkner

I REALLY enjoyed my first year of doing this and fully intend to take part next year (yes, Tyler, that is a hint that I demand that you do this again! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and am going to ensure that I spend the next twelve months improving with my sketches in the hope that I can not only up the quality level but maybe get closer to 30 characters drawn, as well as created.ย  Obviously if you want to find out about all 30 of the characters (including the 20 that didn’t make it past just words) you can do so here: http://www.30characters.com/2010/11/30/30-characters-sort-of/

Coming out of this – on top of the fun – I am so very glad to have been able to meet and interact with so many talented and friendly people.ย ย  There are some on here that I honestly am in awe of (yes, Mr. Govar, I am looking your way ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) but at least it gives me something to aspire to.ย  I am now going to definitely use quite a few of my characters in upcoming projects (short-stories, mostly, but potentially a novel) and am actually toying with the idea of a fun webcomic.

So, thanks Tyler, for a great, great idea!

About the Author ()

I live in Northern Ireland though, for me, home is simply wherever my loved ones are: my wife, best-friend and soul mate, Carole, and our two wonderful little boys - Mackenzie (5) and Nathaniel (3). While I have a degree in art I'm really nothing more than an enthusiastic sketcher. Most of my creative energies are focused on writing - predominantly a short story author but have delved into novellas and am current researching/prepping my first novel. I founded, and edit, 'With Painted Words' - www.withpaintedwords.com - an online literary magazine that takes inspiration from monthly image prompts and 'The WiFiles' - www.thewifiles.com - a weekly speculative fiction 'zine. I'm also a co-host on the Folowing The Nerd - www.followingthenerd.com - radio show, and a contributor to their news/reviews website. I teach kung fu. I'm a school Governor, a Director for the Arts & Disability Forum of Ireland and a lobbyist/advocate for the Northern Ireland Rare Disease Partnership. ... and sometimes I sleep.
