Finally decided to commit to Inktober this year. Because I've been using a lot of ink lately, it dovetails nicely with an upcoming show I'm working to fill. The goblin above--and his antagonist-- may end up in a larger, finished work.
Dragged a beautiful old chair-back carving out from under a pile of neckties in a shite-store one day. (It really has both sides, but I was too lazy to sketch symmetry that day.) I'm using it for an above-door carving in a small painting.
This little guy--a mug with a mug with a mug with a mug--will be finished in watercolor. Was working on that before I took a break to blog.
Random--sorry. But that morning I was sick of figures. And all I had with me was a ballpoint pen. Added the watercolor wash and white prismacolor later.
A clockwork, steam-punky sketch. He came out of nowhere, while I was drinking my morning cup of coffee. When a character just develops on the paper without any thought from me, well that is one of the best feelings!
Jake Parker came up with Inktober back in '09. He comes up with many creative things.
He must be a character.

Got a few more days to go before November. Maybe some Halloweenie stuff will be next.
Thanks for reading!
