Crumbling Hideaway

Ink drawing of crumbling ruins by Alecia Goodman

A lost world, ancient decaying relic…Could you imagine having a hideaway like this? It would have been amazing…though possibly a bit scary. I’m sure that pieces of this place fall all the time. As a kid my special hiding spots were under pine trees and behind stacks of pallets. My games ranged from being an archaeologist to home cooking with mud and anything else I could find. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #ancient #ruins #fantasy

Embraced by a Ghost

I thought about this prompt “Ghost” a bit differently.  There are many instances in a day where something small reminds me of my friend Jaime or even my dad. I lost both of them to cancer. Sometimes it’s a pattern or a color or even at times just the rain. These thoughts though made me both happy and sad. Instead though I thought about something else completely, how easy it is to lose yourself whether it’s from being in so called love or in the midst of pursuing a goal. It can be so very hard to embrace your ghost and even more difficult to find yourself again. I’ve been  there and I hope to never travel that path again. Be true to yourself and love yourself it’s more important than you will ever know. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #ghost #memories #love #ink #drawing  #woman

Ocean Booty

She guards what’s rightfully hers with an unwavering eye. Never get between a woman and what she holds dear whether it be love, family, or a pirate’s booty. No matter the odds she will spite the odds. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #treasure #pirate #woman #ink #drawing #feather #buccaneer #shadow

Natural Tread

Nature is slowly reclaiming this piece of architecture and some day it will crumble completely. The ruins seem to have their own story to tell. Tread lightly and don’t disturb the ghosts of the past. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #tread #stairs #staircase #ruins #nature #ink #drawing

Warrior Woman

Her expression says it all. It’s my favorite part of this ink sketch. I may revisit it later to add more detail especially on the hands. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #sling #Ink #InktoberDay19 #warriorwoman #focus

Barnyard Misfit and Gerald’s Mom

I imagine that Gerald’s mom worries a lot about her son. He stands out from a crowd and never seems to fit in. He’s quite the misfit compared to the other birds. Hopefully he finds his people soon.

Over the summer we visited Woolaroc. I haven’t been there since I was eleven or so. In one of the animal areas there was an ostrich. He was quite curious, but not exactly friendly though my niece definitely tried to get him to warm up. #Inktober2019 #Inktober #InktoberDay18 #misfit #ostrich #emu #Gerald #mom #ink #drawing

Cascading Locks

Ornament, a special and meaningful accent used to enhance. I immediately thought of a hair ornament. I wanted to simplify the figure and place more emphasis on the ornament. I think that this particular ornament is something that is passed down through family; a strong bond to heritage and love. Do you have any family heirlooms that hold meaning to you? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #InktoberDay17 #ornament #woman #yukata #hair

Tabby Gone Wild

Still playing catch up. Life keeps us on our toes that’s for sure. I decided to draw this kitty, because all pets have a wild side. Some are more wild than others. We once had a cat named Amaretto, who climbed our curtains and had attention issues. She would both mark and pull up the carpet with her teeth if she found a door blocking her from finding one of us. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #InktoberDay16 #wild #cat #pet

For The Love of Hair

The Lady of the Lake is a legend from the times of Arthur and Camelot. The romantic allure of the story is beautiful and mysterious.  #Inktober #Inktober2019 #InktoberDay15 #legend #camelot #kingarthur #ladyofthelake #woman #hair

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
