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.

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

Light At The End

Almost there…still behind, but still getting it done. I wanted to work something more about contrast and practice my cross hatching. I really like how it turned out. Still I need to work faster, always seem to get caught in the subtleties and details.  What do you think of the contrast and shading? I plan to revisit this one and add in some birds or maybe dark butterflies. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #dark #woman #ink #drawing #art #shadow #contrast

Rainy Day Blues

Inktober Day 25 Tasty” ©2019 alecia goodman to present

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

Barreling Through

Ink drawing of Dizzy Tornado by Alecia Goodman

Have you ever seen a tornado? Or at the least seen the Wizard of Oz. They can be both fascinating and frightening all at the same time.  I’ve seen many storms and am very thankful to have dodged them. One particular storm was possibly the largest I’ve seen. On April 26, 1991 I watched the Andover tornado, an F5, move across the horizon. Luckily it was miles away from my backyard. The twister left behind complete devastation and 21 people died that day. Most people who live in Tornado Alley have similar stories of dodging or surviving.

Crumbling Hideaway

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
