Happens every year – along about mid-October, I get hungry for paint and color. Inktober is just too dark. I caved a bit early this year. The weather has been hot and muggy outside, the remnants of a tropical storm. It feels like July, not cool and crisp, the way I like it. Clearly the […]

I have an unnatural fascination with old and odd information. Because of this, I also own more an a couple of sets of really old reference books. If you have never tried to reference information from an old encyclopedia, then you probably have never realized that these books often were just accumulations and layers of […]

I miss chalkboards. Whiteboards, stained with last week’s lessons, just don’t cut it. #InkTober2017 #inkTober

An Inktober ink mix: I began with zebra brush pen with waterproof ink and was going to move on to watercolor, but after I scanned it, the siren song of PhotoShop was too strong. Color and colored pen strokes are all digital.

Poison apples and the evil witch for #Inktober day 3. I had a couple minutes to throw in some digital ink too. #inktober2017

Today’s InkTober prompt is divided. Since I am thinking about children’s math, that came down to just one thing. Unfortunately that leads to fractions, which is not tomorrow’s prompt.

Late last night I barely made the October 1 deadline for the first day of InkTober. I’m glad it’s back. There’s nothing like a deadline to inspire activity. My drawing for October 1. Rule for InkTober are simple- see below: And the official daily prompts, but you can draw / submit anything that flows out […]

Feeling like a witness to a post-broken-wrist miracle: I am holding a pencil and brush again and making some art! The lines have a good bit more wiggle than they used to, and paint strokes are not as strong.- but I am holding implements of creation in my right hand! Hallelujah!

Just about 2 weeks ago I took a tumble in a parking lot and smashed my wrist. It was an impressive crashing and smashing. After some surgeries I now have a bionic wrist, a wrist brace, a fair amount of pain and swelling, and an outright impatience to get back to painting.. But […]

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.

Why so daily? Even on Friday! This is my first run at this year’s #inktober (a bit early. I’m excited).

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

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.

Well, it’s a day late (And a dollar short) – probably too much Relaxation Day (Aug 15).

Gouache and ink. This is a study looking at a couple of the different types and shapes of bees and bumblebees.
