Inktober 2021…Day 4: Knot

By on Oct 4, 2021

    Jellyfish have no brains. Whenever you see a jellyfish in a zoo or aquarium they have to specially design the tanks to have no corners, otherwise they will all get stuck in a corner. They just kind of drift along with no direction or destination. I alway wonder why their tentacles don’t end up in knotty messes like my earbud cords do almost instantly.

Inktober 2021…Day 3: Vessel

    Look, I know I have no one to blame but myself. Regardless, I have had Yellow Submarine in my head for the past 18 hours. First thought that popped in my head was to do a nice illustration of a Cold War era submarine with alot of detail and maybe some sharks swimming around it but I went with this.

Inktober 2021…Day 2: Suit

  Kickin’ it with my kid. Wasn’t really sure what to do with this one. At first I was thinking something with Spider-Man. I still love Into the Spiderverse, so I was thinking about doing something messing around with Miles’ Jordans and maybe a mask but we were watching Death Note and all the detectives are wearing suits so I ended up going in this direction. I was really trying to keep it as simple as possible while adding complexity mostly with line density. Pretty happy with how this one turned out.

Inktober 2021…Day 1: Crystal

    Here we go! Trying to start strong. Stayed up a little too late to work on this but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Tried to take on a challenge I didn’t know if I could accomplish. I didn’t know if it would read as a crystal but I showed my kids and they both knew it was a crystal immediately so I will take that as a win. I’m going to try not being negative about my stuff. I am too busy to get bogged down. I’m going to keep pushing forward and keep making some art.     See you tomorrow!

Inktober 2020…Day 2: Wisp

I don’t know why but I have always been fascinated by will-o’-the-wisps. They are phantom lights that appear in wooded areas, especially swamps, bogs and marshes. They can be explained as a natural phenomenon caused by chemicals released during organic decay which is why they are more common in swamps and bogs. Travelers would see them at night and decide to investigate only to get lost or trapped in the bog, never to be seen again. Like many dangerous things, they became part of folklore and stories were made to warn people from following the lights. When I saw the prompt was wisp, I knew immediately I was going to draw one but I wasn’t sure how. There have been many depictions that I could copy or draw upon but I just did a magikarp and I wanted to do something that wasn’t necessarily just copying someone else’s art. We took a trip this weekend and while...
