Ink, 8″ x 6″
This was my drawing for Inktober Day 26: Squeak. My inspiration was the R.O.U.S.es in the Princess Bride.
“Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don’t think they exist.”
I have mixed feelings about my Inktober efforts. On one hand I am disappointed that I didn’t get all of the days done. On the other hand I don’t think I’ve ever done 20 blog posts in one month (possibly even 2!) and some of the drawings I’m really pleased with. I have preliminary pencil sketches done for a few of the days that I missed. Two of them I particularly like and am thinking of completing, even though Inktober is over. Then I will call it done.
So… November. I have missed woodcut printmaking and have two prints I want to complete this month. More drawings, more Urban Sketching. That’s the plan.
