Inktober #7

Here's a little sketch, pen and ink, I did of a circus performer...taken from a black and white photo from the 1800's.

Inktober #6

Another quick sketch before bedtime...inspired from an old black and white photo of two young men boxing.  Background of yellow was added with photoshop, the rest was pen and ink. Makes me want to start singing the classic "...I am just a poor boy, though my story's seldom told, I have squandered my resistance for a pocket full of mumbles such are promises...."

Inktober #5

This one is a quickie before heading to bed.  Trying to catch up on a sketch a day with ink in the month of October.  This one modeled after a photo of a mug shot of an old woman from the early 1900's in Australia.

Inktober #4

Yes, I am behind again, but I'm trying to keep up.  I did this while waiting in the car for my son to finish his soccer practice this afternoon.  To be completely forthright, its ink plus I would have to call it an inkleadtober contribution...regardless, here's a sketch of a photo of an old Italian farmer from the 1800s I found online.

Inktober #3

Alas, I am caught up.  Here is drawing #3 for the 3rd of October.  You can't go wrong with drawing insects.  This is one of my favorite specimens, the stag beetle.

Inktober #1

I've decided this month to participate in the famous "Inktober" wherein one strives on every day in October to post something drawn only with ink.  I'm a day behind, since today is the I've got to knock something else out too.  But here's a little sketch of Thomas S. Monson, current Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
