Inktober Day 31: Slice

Woo! I finished! I did it!

I had to really rush this one, but all the same, I like how it turned out.

Inktober Day 29: Double

This one was another collaboration with my buddy Izmar. This time, she went first (on the right), then challenged me to draw something that might have created her sculpture as a self-image…

The idea was that we were trying each other’s strengths, which is to say she would go about putting inorganic shapes in perspective, and I’d try to do something organic and “creature-y”. I think we both nailed it.

Inktober Day 28: Gift

Some days, everything goes wrong.

First I accidentally smeared the outline, then I realized I didn’t have my good eraser so the lines got smeared more while I was erasing my pencil with a cheap eraser, and to top it all off, I’m not near my scanner, so I have to post a cell phone photo…

Inktober Day 18: Bottle

I haven’t encountered much anti-American sentiment in my time here in France. In fact, the French are actually much more friendly than stereotypes would have you believe (except Parisians, but they hate everyone equally, even themselves), and surprisingly, most of the anti-American hostility I have faced has come from other immigrants.

The quote in the drawing is something that a coworker actually said to me shortly after the birth of my son, at a job where I worked with a British and an Indian woman who were both full of disparaging and disdainful remarks for Americans…

Inktober Day 14: Clock

For today’s drawing I decided to re-use and ink a pencil sketch in my sketchbook from several years ago.

Didn’t get too fancy with it due to time constraints (weekend with my son 🙂 ), but I’m still happy with it.
