Inktober Day 20: Tread

This one is okay. Not the best thing ever, and certainly not the most original for the “Tread” prompt on Day 20, but it is what is and I’ve already moved on, back into working on holiday gifts for people so I continue to feel like I’m ahead of the game on that front. I […]

Inktober Day 19: Sling

I wish I could take full credit for this concept, but all I can truly claim is the end result that came from the original inspiration. When I started thinking about today’s prompt, SLING, I googled a few things to get some ideas, slingshot was one of them. Through browsing, I actually found a piece […]

Inktober Day 18: Misfit

So many things come to mind when I hear the word Misfit, most of them about the band and having forty eyes in my head or digging up bones, and while I looked at that prompt all week, I seriously considered drawing the band. I woke up this morning, however, with other thoughts in mind. […]

Inktober Day 17: Ornament

Usually when the word ornament comes to mind, I think about decorative lawn gnomes, or shiny baubles dangling from a holiday tree, but when I started talking about what I might like to do for today’s prompt, my husband immediately said, “You need an alien dashboard ornament on a ship dashboard overlooking some distant galaxy.” […]

Inktober Day 16: Wild

A lot of things come to mind when I hear the world wild, most of them animals, but the one that sticks out above all others is The Green Man, and though we come to the end of his cycle in just a few short months, I always imagine him vibrant and green and teeming […]

Inktober Day 15: Legend

There were so many things I could have done for the “Legend” prompt, and for a long time I contemplated drawing David Bowie, but then I realized probably about a billion people would also do David Bowie because let’s face it… LEGEND! Then I started thinking about the times in my life when I personally […]

Inktober Day 14: Overgrown

I was so tired of summer this year, of being hot, that lately I keep thinking about winter landscapes, fresh snow drifts, dried out vegetation grown up around crashed ufos in the woods… So, when I saw today’s prompt, all I could think about was a crashed ship in the woods, buried deep in snow […]

Inktober Day 13: Ash

I could have done all kinds of things for the “Ash” prompt, but the first thing that popped into my brain was a cigarette. Probably because I used to smoke and cigarette ash was the bane of my existence for years. I jokingly told a friend that after I finished this, I felt like smoking […]

Inktober Day 12: Dragon

I have loved dragons as long as I can remember, some part of me convinced these majestic beasts once roamed the skies of our world, even if only in our dreams. I am still pretty sure there is a planet out there somewhere in the universe where dragons reign supreme. I’d go to that planet […]

Inktober Day 11: Snow

I love owls, and not just because Harry Potter made them cool, but because this family friend we had when I was growing up was an owl-lover. She had owl knick-knacks around her house, art, sweaters, t-shirts, I swear she even had a pair of owl socks, which for an adult was a big hoot […]
