On the road with this one. No time to sit quietly. No black pen.
Oh yeah! Look at those mess-ups will ya!
Another night I was at a loss for what to draw (but feeling compelled to draw something). This time I was on the phone to my dad who suggested dogs and lawn mowers – with heavy references to his own dogs. His doberman does not have a tail. Don’t know what I was thinking.
I was having some trouble thinking of what I was going to draw for inktober. I mean, a theme isn’t required, but it’s nice, right? I’m not sure if I have a theme yet, but a month full of houses would be very useful later on.
Hey, this is the first time I ever used the gallery feature. I’ve been drawing houses recently. I’m practicing on adding more backgrounds and got to thinking of creating my own file of clip art that I could mash together to make street locations and what not. Houses.
Inktober is coming – a month long celebration of artists drawing in ink. I’ve happily watched through a couple years of Jake Parker’s Inktobers and seen other artists I follow fall in line with brush and pen. This will be the first year I give it a try. No pencils, no erasers, just ink on paper, a drawing a day, all October long. Even on 24 hour comics Day October 20th. So keep your fingers crossed for me and check back. Check back everyday. 🙂
Have you ever noticed the hive-mind? You know, when you were just talking about some celebrity who’d been out of the news or some fictional character and suddenly the same name is mentioned on a talk show. When five different movies are released based on the same premise of a long dead volcano bringing catastrophe to the country as we know it. When your friends have just been saying that you should consider having a book made of your comics and then you read a news article about Print On Demand: Major Announcement Could Change How You Buy Books.
So instead of hiring a printing service where you are restricted to a batch no smaller than 50 at the cost of $200, there will be machines that you can take your print ready PDF to, or select a book from a list of available titles, and the machine will make a book for you. This is some cool news. I imagine it will be much easier than trying to exacto and glue bind your pages!
I didn’t know what to draw one night so I asked my husband for advice. We were watching Keeping Up Appearances at the time during one of Onslo and Daisy’s morning in bed scenes, so he suggested I draw them young. This is it.
He wants to suck your intestines out. He’s hungry, can you tell?
