Old School Blues

I’m late to the party, I know. This weather has been wreaking havoc with my sinuses and triggering migraines. I also need to work faster,, something I’m always looking to get better at anyways. A friend let me use one of her pictures as reference for this one. Radio made me think of 1930s, 1940s blues singers, specifically when they wouldbe in studio singing live. One of her pictures was perfect for it. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #Girl #radio #singing #vintage #microphone

Today is day 3 of Inktober, Bulky. There were so many ideas with this one. A hulking muscle man (muscle beach), an overstuffed suitcase, a puffy coat, life jacket, bulky sweater or hat … instead an inner tube or doughnut or lifesaver seemed like a fun one to work on shadows and contrast. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #bulky #Girl #swimsuit #beach #sunhat

As You Wish

Have you ever dressed up as a princess? My children love dress up and are always wearing costumes.

Catch of the Day

“Inktober Day 1 Fish” ©2020 alecia goodman to present

Inktober so it begins. First prompt this year is fish. I’m a bit rusty as I’ve been so busy dealing with 2020 just like most everyone else. Hopefully the ideas and ink will start flowing. This girl was caught over the summer near my house. Always interesting to see how kids handle their very first fishing excursion. My daughter was definitely adamant that she wouldn’t kiss a fish, even if it was her first catch. #Inktober2020 #Inktober #fish #InktoberDay1 #fishing #Girl #water

It’s Coming, Inktober 2020

It’s almost here. The time of year where it gets cooler and many artists are gearing up. All of us hoping our ink lasts and our ideas continue flowing. Every year I use this event to improve my drawing skills and get more comfortable with ink. Wish me luck as I try to tackle this year … working at the same time makes it more challenging just like always. #INKTOBER2020 #INKTOBER

I got a wonderful mail surprise today. This book is special to the Slyker family. It documents Joseph’s career, allowing him to share stories with his family; giving them an inside look. I was the cover designer and through Under Wraps Publishing Services formatted the inside. Thank you so much Slyker family for letting me be a part of this special project and for sending me the book.

Inktober 2019

Somehow I survived Inktober,  though a couple of pens and kneaded erasers didn’t make it.  Finished all 31 days, only had to go about a week into November. A concept and drawing a day is hard to keep  up. Well now that its done, which drawing was your absolute favorite and why? Please comment  with your favorite. Remember all drawings and prints of drawings are for sale,  just contact me for more information. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #wrap #ink #drawings #art

 

Cherry Bomb … Boom!

Boom, DONE… wrapping up Inktober with Ripe the last drawing. Thank goodness I’m finally finished. I love doing this, but time is a hot commodity. Maybe next year I’ll actually get done on time. I survived this round and I’m fairly certain my dabbling in ink has improved every year. Not every drawing is brilliant. I’m drawing and personally that’s more of the point. I’ll be taking a short break after posting the final wrap up since I have editing and design work to tackle. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #ripe #blackberry #shiny #juicy #fruit #ink #drawing #InktoberDay31

Catching A Dream

Inktober Day 30 Catch, almost done. I just have one more to go. Ridiculous that this year has been so hard to keep up with it. This one may be a bit simpler, but I really like the pose and line work. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #catch #woman #ink #drawing #art #beauty #star

Not A Punching Bag

Inktober Day 29 Injured, yes this one is hard to look at. It’s not pretty, in fact I would say its ugly and painful … not the woman, but what was done to her. No she didn’t walk into  a door. Domestic Violence is ugly and should never be ignored. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #injured #domesticviolence #woman #beaten #abuse

I’ve included a link below that is a beautifully choreographed dance that visually represents the relationship of a man and a woman in a domestic violence situation. Video against domestic violence.
