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.

Three Little Fish – Illustration Friday

Prompt: Aquatic

Materials: smooth Bristol ATC, marker, colored pencil

I started by making the water in the background using my markers and some colorless blender solution that I flicked at it with a paintbrush. Then I decided it needed some fish, so I drew them on top of the marker with my colored pencils.

Apple Time – Illustration Friday

Topic: Harvest

Medium: Marker, India Ink, Dip Pen

Paper: Smooth Bristol ATC

The only thing that came to mind for “harvest” was apples. Seriously, so many things are being harvested right now and the only thing I could think of was apples. So I drew a basket of them.

Mightier Than the Sword – Illustration Friday

Prompt: Weapon 

Media: marker, Dip pen, India ink

Paper: smooth Bristol ATC

When I saw the prompt for this week, I was watching a documentary on Netflix about online bullying. So I immediately thought of using words or a pen. Then I realized it could really go either way, words as a weapon for good or bad.

Since I’m using my brush pen for Inktober, I decided to go with my dip pen for more of a challenge.
