Inktober 2015: Drawings 27-29

For these three drawings, I'm pleased to present a mini-drama in which a little ghost learns to make a friend.  All are Higgins Eternal black ink (not waterproof) on Canson Mix Media art paper.

Inktober 24-26: Ballpoint sketches

These three Inktober drawings were created with a Bic Round Stic Grip ballpoint pen in fine/black.  I love sketching with ballpoint because it's ink that can travel with me anywhere.  I drew 24 and 26 in a new little Apprentice sketchbook by Baron Fig (link). It's a perfect pocket size and the paper is very nice!  It holds up to a lot of drawing.

Inktober 2015: Drawings 22 and 23

I'm posting these together because they are similar to each other but different than the group I shared in the previous post.  They seem to want their own space.  22 is drawn with pen and ink and 23 is drawn with black ballpoint pen.  Both are wearing romantic dresses of the Edwardian era.

Inktober 2015 Continued: Drawings 15-21

Here's the next batch of Inktober 2015 drawings.  I'd say I can't believe I've been behind on these all month, but the sad part is that I do believe it.  But I also believe I can still catch up!  I can at least catch up with posting them. :)

Inktober 2015: First Three

InkTober was started by artist Jake Parker as an ink drawing challenge for the month of October.  You can find out about it on his site here (X).  In its simplest form, it's making daily ink drawings during October and posting them online with the hashtag #inktober.

I've not participated in the past and had not planned to do so this year either.  But I draw in ink!  I felt like at least doing a few drawings would be a good drawing experience and would keep me from feeling InkToberLazy.

I don't know how many pieces I'll have time to do, but I've done three so far.  I hope I can surprise myself and do all 31 days!
