It’s a late start to #inktober this year. I did a bit of playing with vectorizing the image, which lets me play with the line quality on the computer! It’s also the only time that I’ve used Adobe Illustrator and not wanted to slap the computer.

Morning wakeup with cat

Why so daily?   Even on Friday!

This is my first run at this year’s #inktober (a bit early. I’m excited).

Just Noodlin’ and Doodlin’

When in doubt, doodle. This is what my day looks like when something at work has me stumped.

National Potato Day – August 19

Happy National Potato Day – and beware! You may be keeping an eye out for those oversize zucchinis in this hot weather, but those potatoes can sneak right up on you.

I’ve been pondering doing a series of days worth celebrating.  Here’s the first: August 13 – National Bowling Day!

Advent – Day 10

The idea of a tiny Victorian Christmas village can be either totally charming – a bit unsettling,depending on the scale of the viewer.

Advent – Day 4

True confessions: I began this on Dec 2, but didn’t complete it until last night. The 4s on the wallpaper are for Advent – Day 4

Advent Illustration 2

Jury duty involves quite a bit of sitting around in absolutely boring rooms.  Not so good for scanning images, but great for sitting and inking.  Also pretty good for learning American dialects.  It was a drug abuse trial.  Hours spent hearing ‘payinn’ and ‘peeill’.  Translation: ‘pain’ and ‘pill’.
This is the second day of twitter’s #illo_advent challenge
