INKlings Have Returned!!

As I said they would! I think Sunday is a mighty fine time to upload a week’s work of critters, don’t you? And this weeks’ selection is pretty amusing.

Sadly, with Christmas (oh, no, I said it!!) only two months away, I’m diving into a season of work I won’t be able to post until after the holidays. That being said, there’s a handful of other, not gift works in progress I’ll be continuing as well as I keep going with this stride I’ve struck recently. It’s good to be getting back into the flow of making art! Who’d have thunk?

I’ve also decided to maybe start showcasing, once a month or so, artist friends of mine for you to investigate and follow as well. I’m gifted with a plethora of talented friends and acquaintances, so please give them a look through in the coming months!

A Decision Made with Pen and Ink

Another quick run of some of my favorite new sketches produced for my “Cultural Safari” Coarse. I must say, it is very possibly the best class I’ve taken in several semesters. Getting re-introduced to sketching for the sake of sketching has been wonderful. It’s also helped me in deciding a theme for my books. While the sketchbooks are intended to be taken from observation, doing so (for myself) gets boring mighty quick.

So… I’ve found a solution. Throughout the book there will be a mixture of observation and fantastical, the elements of which will usually be a contrast of black or blue ink and something brighter and unexpected. So far, it’s been a wonderful decision.
