Mask/Inktober #31

   For my last Inktober 2017 drawing, I used a 7mm mechanical pencil and a black Bic pen. I thought of the old masks doctors would wear during the plagues of long ago. They have always seemed really creepy to me. I can only imagine the fear a little child infected with the plague felt when looking up into the face of a beaked doctor. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

Found/Inktober #30

  For my second to last Inktober 2017 drawing, I found an old tiny sketch of a fairy I drew a few years back. I recreated her finding a mysterious skeleton key, and added a locked wooden door as well. I had the “Secret Garden” story of the little girl who finds the key to a locked garden in my mind when creating. I love the peacock feather wings on my little fairy too.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    We will be lost and found a thousand times along this cobbled road of us.


United/ Inktober #29

   My 29th Inktober drawing is a depiction of the prompt word “united”, with a black ink Bic pen. All I could think of with “united” were lovers and molecules, so I ended up going with the latter. Happy Sunday!


We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.

Atoms united to form a molecule/ Atoms united to form molecules united to form DNA.

Fall/Inktober #28

     For my 28th drawing for Inktober I used a 7mm mechanical pencil and a black Bic pen. I drew a young boy gazing up at the night sky where stars are falling. It has been a while since I have seen a falling star. Too long. I have been itching to go out to the woods and sleep under the stars. My husband, our tent, some hot chocolate, flashlights, and an awesome book. Oh yes, that would be nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Ash ๐Ÿ™‚

Ive loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.



Climb/ Inktober #27

    My 27th Inktober drawing depicts a woman climbing a rope onto a huge giraffe. I think my giraffe turned out super cute, and I kept it simple with a tiny silhouette of a woman. It felt nice drawing today with all my windows open in my home. There is a lovely fall breeze today filling my home with fresh cool air. Feels wonderful!


Ship/Inktober #25

     For my 25th Inktober drawing I used a 7mm mechanical pencil and a black Bic pen. For the word prompt “ship”, I drew a curious mermaid watching an anchored ship late in the night. Have a blessed day!

Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.
