Wizened Age

Age equals more hair to shave. His hair, eyebrows,  and beard are more than overgrown. Although his appearance may be wizened with the years he’s accumulated his life begins anew with every new birth. For he is known throughout the eons as Father Time. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #overgrown #InktoberDay14 #fathertime #hair #beard

Smoking Ash

“Hmmm … I have a brilliant idea. Here hold this.” The smile and eyes remind me of my brother and his wild ideas. Then again I may have done some of my own antics. Luckily we missed out on the Victorian age and child labor. It makes me think of Mary Poppins … a nice story, though it tends to glamorize the idea of chimney sweeps. I imagine that soot and ash were caked on their bodies and clothes. Sadly built up in their lungs too. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #InktoberDay13 #ash #chimneysweep #boy #victorian #drawing

Walking “Fido”

There’s two possible stories to go with this one. Maybe this innocent and naive girl took her dog for a walk. She is too busy daydreaming to realize her dog has been eaten and she’s leading a dragon. I think I like the second story best. What if she has her very own pet dragon and takes her precious Fido on walks. Think of all their amazing adventures and how tricky it would be to take care of such a giant beastie. Which story direction do you like better? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #dragon #fido #walk #InktoberDay12 #ink #drawing

What’s in a pattern? Repeats of similar shapes especially in fabric and wallpapers. Nature does have patterns too. They are bold and beautiful though at times fragile like the existence of the bees. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #pattern #bee #honeycomb #nature

Let Her Fly

I get to blame the weather for being so late on this one. I was battling a migraine. Hopefully I can get caught up.

I’ve always thought swinging was akin to flying. Peter Pan had it made, care free and could fly anywhere. Aerial artistry is beautiful and I tried to capture just an instance. I loved the contortion of the body and the foreshortening … not to mention that hair. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #swing #InktoberDay9 #aerial #contortion #peterpan #flying

Athena Enchanted

So many ideas for “Enchanted” Inktober Day 7- fantasy, folklore, and mythology. I’ve always loved drawing women and owls. Thinking about mythology and goddess, Athena embodies strength and beauty. Her weapon is her intelligence … her mind, more beautiful than flesh. I’m thinking of writing a short story specifically for each drawing once Inktober is over for this year. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #enchanted #woman #owl #drawing #ink

Pesky Crabs

For this one I looked at plus sized models and pin ups like Hilda by Duane Bryers. I wanted to show that as women we are all beautiful no matter our size. We don’t  come in the same sized package, much like all of our personalities and experiences are all different.  Women battle their curves when I think more often than not we need to love our bodies and be more accepting. I am no different, growing up with the mindset of being big boned. I may be curvy,  but I’m comfortable in my skin. I’m not fat and hope the world sees my strength and my beauty. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #husky #art #ink #drawing
