Inktober Day 31: Ripe

I made it all the way through my very first Inktober and didn’t miss a single day. Even on the challenging days when I had no idea what I was going to draw when I sat down with my pens and my pad, I still managed to dive in and create something. It feels really […]

Inktober Day 30: Catch

Man, I am starting to feel a little sad that Inktober is almost over. October has always been my favorite month of the year, and adding art to my daily October routine this month has been such an amazing experience. I feel like I’ve learned so much, and I can’t wait to keep creating art […]

Inktober Day 28: Ride

One of the things I love about art is also one of the things I don’t love about it. Sometimes, no matter how you see something in your mind, it doesn’t always come out that way on the canvas. Occasionally it’s impossible to create what you see, and other times it’s even more amazing than […]

Inktober Day 26: Dark

I think when the Ancient prompt ended, the old gods had already infiltrated my soul because when I started on the “Dark” prompt for today, Cthulhu demanded to be front and center within the darkness. I used a Tombow Mono 05 drawing pen and Tombow dualbrush pens.

Inktober Day 25: Tasty

I love the idea of space food. I love trying to replicate those colors in the kitchen, as well as on the page, so when I saw the Tasty prompt, I was super excited to make something spacey to eat. I give you Space Cakes with Galaxy Berry Syrup and a nice glass of Nebulime […]

Inktober Day 24: Dizzy

I have had a stupid busy week, as you can see from the sporadic nature of my postings. This is the second time this week I’ve been late adding my Inktober post, though it was done yesterday, I swear! I managed to get it finished yesterday morning before we left for appointments, and then by […]

Inktober Day 23: Ancient

“It was just a colour out of space—a frightful messenger from unformed realms of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it; from realms whose mere existence stuns the brain and numbs us with the black extra-cosmic gulfs it throws open before our frenzied eyes.”-H.P. Lovecraft

Inktober Day 22: Ghost

I could have done so many things with this. Sheets floating around, possibly in space, but when I first settled on doing Inktober back in September, and I saw the Ghost prompt, my mind immediately went to Ghost… as in the band from Sweden that my progeny has been gloriously obsessed with for years now, […]

Inktober Day 21: Treasure

I had some computer issues yesterday afternoon, and so I forgot to post this to the site. I’m backdating it so it shows up on the day it was meant to show up, as that was when I actually completed it. I have to say, I have really been enjoying the challenge of Inktober. I […]

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 […]
