Inktober 2018

I have been floundering with my art for the past few weeks/months/years…..lol. 

I couldn’t decide what online course(s) to take……if any…..

I’d sit down with the urge to paint/sketch/draw but was stymied about WHAT to paint/sketch/draw……I blamed it on the kitchen reno and having all my supplies packed away. But I wasn’t interested in drawing on Tabley either……

So I took a look at Inktober 2018 and kind of backed into it. I was playing around with inkblots (blowing ink with canned air) and then ‘finding’ things in the blots and decided to see if I could incorporate that idea into the Inktober prompts. So far I’ve done 5! (Which, quite frankly, is 4 more than I thought I was capable of!)

Anyway, for those of you who aren’t on Instagram, here they are for your perusal….for you who ARE on Instagram, sorry….this is a re-run!

Prompt #1 poisonous

prompt #2 tranquil

prompt #3 roasted....I couldn't figure out how to make this fit the prompt....oh well....

prompt #4 spell....he was completely under my spell

prompt #5 chicken....went literal with this one (without an inkblot)

We’ll see how long I can stick to it! 


  1. Thanks for sharing your ink art here, I'm not on Instagram.
    These are wild and fun!

  2. These are really great! Love poisonous though if I saw her I'd be screaming along with Milton. I'm on Instragram, but can't figure how to upload photos from my computer after they've been watermarked and edited. Why do these sites have to make things so difficult for those of us who don't want to use a phone.

  3. They're awesome, Robin! Keep them coming! Milton is my favorite and made me laugh. His poor wife though. ;)
    Have a happy weekend! Any progress with the kitchen reno?

  4. I so know that feeling: sitting down with the urge to paint and then ... nothing .... So glad you are doing Inktober. I saw your sketches on Instagram, but somehow I missed the poison one. I LOVE it!


I appreciate your comments!
