Day 18 of inktober has arrived and it is the biggest misfit of all.
Misfit can be a confusing word to use on someone. It can be used in a good or bad way. The first thing that comes to anyones mind of course is the misfit song from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer tv special. It taught us that being a misfit is sometimes what makes a difference in an otherwise plain world. We love misfits yet we present them in both good and bad ways. It can make someone quite confused. I know I’ve been.
I would try to be the same as everyone else but in the end it didn’t lead me to what I was desiring in life. I especially felt this at the end of college. I felt everyone that broke the rules and did things out of the norm were getting all the rewards while us that followed the rules often got last place.
This inktober has helped me embrace my misfit awkwardness and has led me to vastly improving my drawing skill. Whether it gets noticed on social media or not doesn’t matter to me, because I’m doing this for myself and my own self esteem. Embrace being a misfit because you walk among other beings who are also misfits and pretend not to be.
See you tomorrow for day 19, Sling.
