Some of you may know, I take a great pleasure from drawing and painting, but over the years its been relegated to being an infrequent hobby instead of the focus it was early on in my life. Every year Inktober rolls around, I gawp in awe at other people’s offerings wishing I could commit to creating on that schedule.
This year I took a stab at it. I started late, didn’t get very far and didn’t finish. But I tried. Some I’m proud of, some I’m not. The thing I took away from this year is that I really need to be better prepared, make space in which to create instead of just trying to do it in the middle of other work and try not to over-complicate things. Anyway, here are some of the pieces I managed to complete.
