INKtober Days 8-14

I decided to get involved with INKtober this month, thanks to a post I saw on a friend’s Facebook page.

The gist of INKtober is 31 days of drawings completed in ink, though the under drawing may be created in pencil.

I used to do a lot of pointillism type drawings with pen & ink in high school and early college, but haven’t done much with it in the thousand years since then.

These are days 8-14:

INKtober 2013: Days 1-7

I decided to get involved with INKtober this month, thanks to a post I saw on a friend’s Facebook page.

The gist of INKtober is 31 days of drawings completed in ink, though the under drawing may be created in pencil.

I used to do a lot of pointillism type drawings with pen & ink in high school and early college, but haven’t done much with it in the thousand years since then.

Here are the first seven drawings:

Day 1, "Migraine." I was in the second day of a three day migraine, so this was a fitting description.

I post these daily on my Instagram account, and it can also be seen on Tumblr. Or just wait for another week and the next batch will be posted here.
