Inktober2019, Week 4

Inktober had only 2 weeks for me: Week 1, when I did most of my inked work. And week 4, where I added these last few pieces. In between, I travelled and taught in Oaxaca, and didn’t get to my daily ink sketches. So here’s the last few inked sketches from me.

This portrait is in acrylic ink. I like the bright, graphic quality of the ink and played with it here.

This is one of my favorite piece from the month. Sketched on newsprint with a bamboo pen and Chinese ink. There’s something really freeing about sketching on cheap paper.

And these two spreads in my sketchbook were made over coffee one day.

My #inktober effort this time wasn’t enough to really explore the medium. Still, I’m glad I did the little bit of the challenge that I did, it made me feel part of a big group of people all working together on one challenge.

How was #inktober for you?

    I was uninspired this year. I made a daily sketch, but I just did what I always do with a pen in my hand — nothing new or experimental. I think I needed to give myself more of a challenge. Next year I might actually try the prompts — maybe that will shake things up.
