Inktober Day 9: Swing

Also known as “Playdate”, today’s Inktober challenge came out far more mixed media than inky, but I’m not going to cry about it. I am actually really happy with the concept on this one and can’t wait to rework it so everything lines up properly. I used a Tombow Mono 01 drawing pen and Tombow dualbrush pens to […]

Inktober Day Eight: Frail

The word Frail brings to mind old bones, fragile newborns, skinny tree limbs wrapped in ice, and, of course, baby aliens hatching from their eggs. For this little hatchling, I used Uniball signo gel pens, Sakura Gelly Roll pens, and Tombow dualbrush pens.

Inktober Day 7: Enchanted

It was my progeny who suggested a unicorn when I was wracking my brain in the car this morning, trying to think of what I could create for today’s prompt: Enchanted. Yes, yes, a unicorn. Good idea because unicorns are the actual best, and, honestly, what’s more enchanted than a unicorn (IN SPACE)? I’m sort […]

Inktober Day 6: Husky

I know there are other meanings to the word husky, and I probably could have tried my hand at those meanings instead, but ever since I was a husky mom to my beloved Loki boi, that word only really has one meaning to me. And recently, one of James’s co-workers adopted a beautiful black and […]

Inktober Day 5: Build

Build, build, build and all that came to mind at first was buildings, architecture, hammers, nails, and then I started thinking about the one thing I’d like to build if I had even a little bit of know how on the subject: a robot! And I’d be so nice to it, too. I wouldn’t make […]

Inktober Day 4: Freeze

I thought about this particular prompt for several days leading up to it, and only just decided this morning to try my hand at a quick sketch of The Night King from Game of Thrones. I mean, really, who is more frozen than that, aside from that disney girl with the braids? I spent about […]

Flashy Friday: Esmerelda’s Promise

The seven watched the child approach the ancient stone of a great-grandmother she’d only ever heard stories of. Spectral hands bound before them, they knew not what to expect, but they remembered Esmerelda’s promise. One day, her issue would arrive to set them free and the debt between them would be paid.   They’d waited […]

Inktober Day Three: BAIT

I have always been fascinated by angler fish, intrigued by the idea of them luring their prey into a seemingly cozy space only to gobble them up, so when I saw the prompt for today, I already knew what I wanted to try. And, of course, since it’s me, I had to put this fish […]

Inktober Day 2: MINDLESS

Inktober Day 2 presented something of a challenge when I started thinking about it. What was mindlessness to me, and how could I capture it artistically without words? There were plenty of obvious representations as I started thinking it through. Hollow faces missing their brains, absentminded activities, but in truth the thing I kept coming […]
