Unfortunately due to the move I was not able to finish Inktober this year. That is okay sometimes we fall short of our goals. What is important is to keep trying. Here is a round-up of what I did complete. I followed the official prompts for each day. I go into more detail on what the Inktober challenge is all about in my previous post.
Day Eight – Star – The Missing Pleiade.
The Missing Pleiade. Many cultures have the myth about the Pleiades star group that involves a lost star. So it is possible that additional star was once visible to the naked eye in ancient times. This is my personification of the missing star.
Day 9 – Precious – Little Lou and his Wagon
My son at the age of three in late October.
Day 10 – Flowing – Waterfall
A quick lunch break doodle of a waterfall.
Day 11 – Cruel – Death
A female personification of death. I wanted to represent her as both supernatural and part of the natural order of life. Thus the forest background. There is no life without death.
Day 12 – Whale – Sky Whale
A fun little white ink sketch on black paper.
Day 13 – Guarded – Mamma
A squirrel mom protects her brood.
Day 14 – Clock- White Rabbit
One more quicky I did from the hotel we stayed at while apartment shopping.
Day 15 – Weak- Death Head Hawk Moth.
We often think of insects as frail or weak but they have more strength than we give them credit for.
Well, that is far as I got. How did your Inktober go?
