Inktober2018 Week 1

October 7th, 2018

Once again it is time for #inktober where artists from around the world and all skill levels come together online to commit to at least one daily drawing, maybe in ink, loosely based on a set of prompts… or not. There are no actual rules, just an idea and there are 1000s of us participating. The official Inktober2018 facebook page has 32K members.

This year I will attempt all of the prompts as pin-ups. It helps if you imagine them all as gingers…

This year’s prompts are at the bottom.

1. Poison

Drawing Nekid People: Jonah

February 27th, 2018

On Tuesday night, I like to go to my buddy Rix’s house and draw nekid people. He has a garage apartment in the back that he has converted into a drawing lab. In the garage itself there’s all manner of wood working, paper making, pastel and charcoal making supplies, and there is almost always some kind of Himalayan Yak Yodelling music playing to expand your mind.
