Notes Gone Ghibli

“Lunch/Snack Notes Ghibli ” ©2021 alecia goodman to present

Every day for school I try to include a note with my kids lunches and snacks. Sometimes they are a reminder or just a phrase to prompt a smile. Normally I try to do a quick sketch referencing something they’ve watched or are into at the moment. Can you identify all the movies and characters? Or maybe answer a question? #drawing, #aleciagoodman, #Ghibli, #movies, #sketch, #Favorite

Inktober 2020 Rally

I should have had this up sooner, but I was busy adulting. So I’m curious which one was your favorite this year? I focused more on my references this year and using 1 ink pen the whole time. Some things I’ve learned from doing this event every year … that I still need to go faster and it really takes a lot to get a drawing done per day. #Inktober2020, #aleciagoodman, #art, #ink, #drawing

Rollercoaster Training Wheels

Its time to wrap up this Inktober. I know this year took me a while to finish and even this last one was horribly late too. I really like this one though, it makes me reminisce. Reminds me of an NBAA invitation I designed years ago playing off of planes, trains, and automobiles. Or maybe even from high school waiting for the train to crawl by while I sat in my truck after swim practice.

This past month has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I have been struggling with juggling work and being a teacher for my kids’ remote schooling. I’m not a teacher or a counselor or a computer tech person … but I’ve been wearing all of those hats. I feel like we are all just going day by day, some days very much like today only managing with tears, training wheels, and kid gloves. Its been hard, but I know it could be so much worse. Remember crawling might be slow moving, but in the end somehow we’ll get there. I keep reminding myself tomorrow will be better and we’ll get back to our normal, hoping for sooner than later. Stay safe everyone. #Inktober2020, #crawl, #aleciagoodman, #train, #engines, #railroad, #trainingwheels, #pandemic, #school

Almost there, just one more to finish. Inktober Day 30, Ominous … What if you’re only weapon was a wand and your intellect. Would you still blunder aroind in the dark with only a lantern to make your way by? One of my favorite fictional characters is a witch and her greatest weapon was her mind. I would only hope in that situation I’d find the courage to keep going. #Inktober2020, #ominous, #witch, #girl, #wand, #lantern, #dark, #stonewall, #wall, #bun, #messybun

Inktober Day 29 Shoes, possibly one of the biggest holidays at our house is Halloween. We all love dressing up. One of the hardest parts of a costume is finding the right footwear. The magical question: Witch shoes are perfect? #inktober2020, #shoes, #witch, #woman, #stockings, #stripes, #stripedstockings, #ink, #drawing, #aleciagoodman,

Floating Donuts

Inktober Day 28 Float … due to the virus this past summer we spent a lot of time at our neighborhood pool. Normally in the mornings or early afternoons to avoid people. We took donuts off and on depending on the wind. On a particular windy day my youngest dropped one of the donuts and was asked to hold another so we could grab the first one. The second was dropped right after that. All of our neighbors heard the screams and watched as we chased them around the pond. Somehow we captured them, though I had my doubts. Hence the rule if its too windy, “No Donuts!” #inktober2020, #float, #girl, #swim, #pfd, #donut, #water, #pool, #vertical, #swimsuit, #splash, #aleciagoodman,

Inktober Day 27 Music, still going. I like the idea of a contrast with this one. I picked a hare to mix with music. #Inktober2020, #Inktober, #music, #hare, #rabbit, #headphones, #fur, #dj, #animal, #aleciagoodman,

Hiding in Plain Sight

Inktober Day 23 Hide, this one was just too cute. Trust me she’s as ornery as she looks. Although a little simpler I had to work a bit to get her expression just right. #Inktober2020, #Inktober, #hide, #girl, #ornery, #rock, #aleciagoodman,

Inktober Day 25 Buddy … Do you have siblings? They’re the first buddy you ever have. Still these two are either the best of friends or the worst of enemies. Depends on the day which mode they’re in. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #buddy #friends #siblings #boy #girl #lightningbolt #snake #nerfgun #fedora #sunglasses #suitjackets #aviators #goggles #nightvision

They Do Exist

Inktober Day 24 Dig, since my son was little he’s wanted to prove that dragons existed. I love this drawing so much. Somehow after midnight last night I found just the right amount of magic to create this drawing. By the time I finished even my husband had a cheesy grin. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #dig #drawing #ink #dragon #explorer #boy #shovel #skull #fossil #dirt #aleciagoodman
