Inktober 2018 Part 1

Inktober is an art challenge that takes place during October with ink as the main medium. There is a list of daily prompts which helps you decide what to draw each day. I had a lot of fun with Inktober this year and will be using a lot of the designs for society 6 and redbubble. I may even sell a few original Ink works on etsy. I had a few stressful moments as I took part Inktober and 365 Days of Paint at the same time, doubling the amount of work I was used to doing. I went home to Ireland for a week during October¬† and couldn’t paint every day because I was catching up with family and friends. So they weren’t all done daily, most of them were done days after the deadline.

The name of the prompts are under each painting. I will be posting the rest in a few days time.

Day 1 Poison
Day 2 Zen
Day 3 Roasted
Day 4 Spell
Day 5 Chicken
Day 6 Drooling
Day 7 Exhausted
Day 8 Star
Day 9 Precious
Day 10 Flowing

I would like to develop a comic book style of drawing, so every now and then I completely copy something from a comic book so steal the technique. Hey don’t judge, I’m not exactly claiming the design as my own, just learning from better artists, on the other hand Picasso did say “good artists borrow, great artists steal”.¬†

Doodles #1

I’m a little bit under the weather today so instead of typing up some big blog, I’m just posting a few doodles from over the years. They are in no particular order and some literally make no sense.

Enjoy!
