Behind Closed Doors – Illustration Friday

Prompt: Mischief
Materials: smooth Bristol 4×4 tile, marker, pigma micron pen

I watch small children for a living. All boys. So when I saw the “mischief” prompt, I immediately thought of them running off to a room and closing a door. Because, you know, that usually indicates mischief is going on behind there. The chaos around the door is supposed to be coming from behind it.

Inktober Week 4 – Final Roundup

It’s the last day of October, and the last day of Inktober. Unintentionally, I have left the week 4 roundup until today. But it works out. Here is the final week and a half of Inktober 2016, and my final thoughts on this year’s project. Here are week 1, week 2, and week 3.

Day 22- “little” Following yesterday’s turning something little into something big, I turned something big into something little. Tiny solar system, totally not to scale. Those dots were a pain.

Day 23 – “slow” Tim’s training was paying off. He managed to run the one meter sprint in just under 13 hours, setting a personal record.

Day 24- “one dozen” I originally wanted to do monkeys, like the song, but one monkey was difficult enough. So how about balloons instead.

Day 25- “tired” This little guy has had a long night. Good night, little owl.

Day 26- “box” It’s the internet. Every box needs a cat.

Day 27- “creepy” Ooh, creepy spider

Day 28- “burn” A forest campfire.

Day 29- “surprise” A jack-in-the-box ready to spring.

Day 30- “wreck” A wrecked block tower.

Day 31- “friend” A friendly helpful hand.

After 31 days of drawing with a brush pen, I have determined that I have too heavy of a hand to use a brush pen. I went through four of them over the course of the month because they kept shredding. But now I know. I prefer my regular pens anyway.
