This is my favorite page from my "Serenity" story. This shows Serenity's mama teaching her how to be an effective Halloween witch. Serenity has her own ideas.

Twenty-two years ago I dressed my son as an artist for Trick-or-Treat. We're always kind of hoping for a little mini-me aren't we?
And here is my last Inktober post. I set a goal of every Wednesday and Saturday and I achieved it! Yay! This little guy is also #14 of "Design 100 somethings."

How about this cutie! One thing InkTober and "Design 100 somethings" has done for me is just get me drawing more. I've had a lot of fun lately pulling out old photos and drawing these characters. Below is the ink drawing which I did after the one above (I think I'm probably doing this backward). These computer sketches are just so much fun!

Here's my Wednesday InkTober post! I really like these, and I'm liking the "less is more" approach to my inking skills. I did these after watching a character design class on SVS Learn. I worked from a couple of photos of my kids and sketched right onto the computer. Below is what the original computer sketches looked like. I then traced lightly with pencil and inked them on 24# copy paper. #inktober #inktober2016

Woohoo! October is finally here! My favorite month! And for the first time I am prepared to participate in InkTober! InkTober was started in 2009 by Jake Parker (who is also one of the awesome instructors at SVS Learn). For a little info about the InkTober Initiative here's the link: http://mrjakeparker.com/inktober
The theme I've chosen to work with is pretty general - CHILDREN. I figure, if I want to be a children's book illustrator I should be able to just about draw them with my eyes closed. Because I need all the practice I can get I am simultaneously working on another project, also put out there by Mr. Jake Parker, Design 100 Somethings. After coming up with 100 drawings of children with various expressions, actions, clothing, and hairstyles I should be an expert. At least, that's the plan!
I'm not going to promise myself a drawing a day, although I am going to try. My goal is to post a nice ink drawing twice a week, on Saturdays, and Wednesdays, throughout the month. If I do more, I will sneak them into my twice weekly posts. #inktober #inktober2016
