We sat in the car by the Indian River as Isaias was trekking north. I sketched this to the patter of raindrops and to “Fluffy” the comedian, being totally snarky about his show in Delhi.
I am working on the Tiny Sketchbook Project for The Sketchbook Project, a library in Brooklyn that houses thousands of sketchbooks.
I have worked on cats for so long that I began a 100 day project of sketching chihuahuas to give myself a break. That segued into doing Chi’s for the Tiny Sketchbook Project. The book is almost complete and I will be mailing it out shortly. I will be scanning and posting all the spreads but in the meantime, here’s a teaser….the pencil gives you an idea of the scale of this sketchbook. I love working tiny!
Here are my Inktober sketches for Days 8 – 14:
I signed up to participate in the Sketchbook Project’s “Infinite Sketch.” You get a 6×9 postcard with some art supplies and you create a segment of a creature that will connect to another artists’ segment, and so on. One artist gets selected for the head and another gets the butt. I’m somewhere in the middle but that’s ok, less pressure on me.
This is my body segment; a duck footed caterpiller.
Here is today’s holiday kitty and the full page spread.
The little witch was rewarded for her studies. She received a new Jr Wand and kitty got a box to play in.
The little witch and her kitty are celebrating the Day of the Dead.
To close out Inktober, here are the sketches from the month long challenge. Most were done in my morning pages, which wasn’t brush pen friendly, but I made it work.
Young witches like to go Trick or Treating, too!
Great story this morning on the Today Show about Sleepy Hollow! Perfect for Halloween!
Also, great website for spooky stories! It was on this website that I read the truth about the Amityville Horror.
