    Inktober

    I’m going to attempt something very bold that I’ve never done before: a 31 day drawing challenge.

    Inktober.

    The Inktober drawings will be posted on my crunchy bunny instagram account; @crunchybunnycomics.

    I don’t know if I can keep up with a drawing a day along with all the other stuff I’m working on, but I’m going to try. Because I want to improve and pushing yourself to accomplish a goal is a good way to do that.

    If you’ve thought about doing Inktober, hit me up on email or social media, let’s do it together!

    Pumpkin spice & the basics of drawing…

    I’m one of ‘those people’ who just loves fall and can’t get enough. I started decorating in September when it was still 99 degrees outside. No shame! Now I’m on the hunt for some real pumpkins, and some good hearty, fall recipes. And of course lots of spice and pumpkin scented candles. You can never have enough candles (especially when you live in an older home <3 ).

    Lately I’ve been listening to Jake Parker while I draw and he was talking about Inktober. He originally designed the Inktober challenge (one ink drawing a day for the month of October) to develop your inking skills and go back to the basics of drawing – without an “undo” button. Apparently some folks were outraged and took that to mean that their digital work was not valid. People are silly. We all get offended so easily, don’t we?

    My (soon to be) little sister-in-law (11) has taken up a great interest in art, and has been drawing on every piece of paper she can get her hands on. She’s been asking me for advice and critiques on her artwork. It’s pretty fun because I see so much of my younger self in her. A few weeks ago…
