Sunday Afternoon Walk

An iPad Pro purchase on Saturday, a beautiful day spent walking in the woods on Sunday, and a free day on Tuesday to view tutorials and play with the Procreate App. I'm loving it! 

Inktober starts on Sunday, so for the month of October I'll be sharing ink drawings twice a week, on Sundays and Wednesdays. (At least, that's my plan). They will be actual ink on paper, not ink brush on iPad, but as I can't stay off my iPad right now, there could be some bonus posts throughout the week as well.

I finished my "First Pearl" dummy book on Monday! WAHOO!!  I am currently going through it carefully to make edits and touch-ups before submitting it to publishers.  By the end of this week I will have my next dummy book, "Serenity" in production.

October (my favorite month of the year) is going to be wonderfully busy!

Inktober is Coming

John Cougar - My first big celebrity crush. 
Done with a simple black medium point Bic pen and a brush pen.

     Inktober is right around the corner. Last year I did two ink drawings a week, this year I'm going to aim for the one-a-day for the whole darn month. I'm pretty sure I won't get 31 drawings done, but by the first of October my dummy book for "The First Pearl" will be complete, and Inktober will be a nice exercise, not only in pen and ink, but in coming up with ideas for the daily word prompts.

Always nice to have a brush pen that's going dry. It worked great for creating texture.

Illustration Friday - RECIPE

     A little early for this but I get so darned excited about autumn in general. Also, my next dummy book, once I'm done with "The First Pearl," is about a little witch named Serenity and this image kind of helps me along with one of her pages.  

Here's the original sketch.
