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.

Take A Hike … Norman’s Ride

Finally I’m back to finish up Inktober. The end of October was overwhelming with headaches, Halloween, deadlines, and our annual Halloween party.

So anyways, Inktober Day 28 is Ride. I almost drew the more obvious like a motorcycle or dirt bike which honestly I would love to do. I wanted to attempt more of a twist. Besides I saw a good handful of these guys trying to attack my garden not too long ago. I also thought drawing the muscle and wet look could be fun and challenging.

So Norman decided he wanted some bling and work as a home decorator. It’s a bit reminiscent of “Shiny” from Moana. Though it’s not sparkly, it goes back to the roots of nature. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #ride #snail #plant #wet #mucus #ink #drawing #art

Missing Fall

This how I wish I could wear a coat right now. Somehow it seems we have skipped Fall and dove right smack into winter. I have broken out my wool socks as it’s just too cold for me. How do you stay warm? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #coat #winter #warm #woman #ink #drawing

Rainy Day Blues

On a cold and rainy day I love snuggling up in a big cozy sweater with a cup of tea. Of course a thick soft blanket makes it even better.  You will normally find a sketchbook, book, or maybe some yarn tucked in there with me. It’s one of the ways I try to relax. What is your favorite ways to escape the rainy day blues? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #tasty #ink #drawing  #rainy #tea #woman #messybun

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

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

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
