My Inktober 2019

Being busy and, on some days, totally uninspired, my output for Inktober this year contained a lot of gap days and turned out to be a mishmash of different styles. I admire people who either followed all the prompts in a uniform way, thus creating a series, or didn’t but still kept to a personal theme (see my last post). However, nothing about this challenge is an obligation, and I still managed to have fun and experiment a little along the way. See below.

One interior, done in red ink:

 

 

A little urban sketching, looking out of a London hotel window:

 

 

Some kiddy stuff:

 

 

 

Autumn inspiration, my annual drawing of oak leaves. I added watercolor:

 

 

On the same theme, but trying out some new inks:

 

 

Playing about with ink on Yupo paper, which is shiny and and slippery, making things uncontrollable:

 

 

And, because I find being silly is good for the soul, I sprinkled in some limericks along the way:

 

 

There was a young woman from York

Who sat down to tea with a stork.

When he started to eat

With his very long beak

She said, Could you please use your fork!

 

Sometimes I did follow the prompts.

 

Day 28 prompt – RIDE:

A beautiful girl in an open car

Was sure she was going to be a star

A crusty old geezer

Who wanted to please her

Had told her he knew she was going far

 

Day 25 prompt – TASTY:

Let them eat cake!’ The Queen cries

‘It is tasty and wholesome besides.’

But the folk in the street

Have nothing to eat

So they riot for sausage and fries.

 

Day 12 prompt – DRAGON

 

Day 27 prompt – COAT:

 

 

Day 6 prompt – HUSKY:

 


Well, that’s all, folks! On to the next project.
