Ink and white-out, 8″ x 10″
More Inktober madness, inspired by Sktchy. I got carried away with the spatter and had to rescue it with my trusty white-out pen. That headdress was super fun to do.
I have decided to not do Inktober on the weekend. I’m short 2 days since I’ve done 5 drawings and today is the 7th. Yes, math skills for the win. Being behind was stressing me out earlier today and you know, it’s not worth being stressed out about a self-imposed drawing challenge. So expect a post every weekday in October, and if any happen on the weekend it’s a bonus. My revised goal is to complete 23.
Tomorrow will be one of very few days where I use the prompts. The prompt tomorrow is “star”.
Ink and watercolor, 9″ x 7″
I have driven past this boat numerous times over the last few months and it always makes me sad. On a dreary grey day a couple of weeks ago I stopped to draw it. The drawing is unfinished because it began raining too hard to continue.
Ink on paper, 6″ x 8″
It seems to me that every time I sit at my computer I do the same things: look at Facebook for far too long, check the weather, look at the news and email. An hour is gone and I probably didn’t even do the thing that I had intended to do in the first place.

This past Saturday I went to the Art Car Museum with Urban Sketchers Houston . We had a special guest from Barcelona, the artist, illustrator and Urban Sketcher Lapin. He was in town visiting family and hooked up with us to draw on WorldWideSketchCrawl Day. Read More

I participated in an art journal workshop last month called 30 Pages/30 Days. It was quite fun and helped reinforce the importance of a daily art practice. The drawing above is from Day 25.
Ink and coffee on watercolor paper, 5″ x 8″
“Ain’t No Wifey” was drawn in a Strathmore watercolor book. The inspiration for this drawing came from Sktchy. The sweet face, the leopard print coat, the hat and the cool little Vans shoes hooked me and I had to draw her. The foreshortening at this angle is tricky! Most of the line work was done with waterproof ink, and then I re-stated some of the marks with water-soluble ink where I wanted it to bleed. I created the tones and washes with a water brush loaded with coffee.

I used up the last couple of pages in two sketchbooks yesterday, and because I haven’t posted anything on WordPress since October I need to share some drawings. Yes, TWO sketchbooks.
Ink and white-out, 8″ x 8″
The day 20 prompt for Inktober was “deep”. I went with Sktchy for inspiration today. This was one of their curated suggestions for deep, as in deep in thought.

The Inktober prompt was “cloud” for day 19. I really didn’t want to draw an actual cloud so instead thought about song lyrics. The Rolling Stones “Get off of my cloud” was what came to mind.

“Bow to the Queen of Slime, the Queen of FILTH, the Queen of Putrescence!”
The Inktober Day 18 prompt was “filthy”. Yeah, I changed the word slightly. This is the old hag in Buttercup’s nightmare who “boo’s” her. Read More
