Any challenge is a good challenge: whether you win or not, you still learn a lot about yourself, what works for you, what needs to be improved.


In my case, Inktober has proven absolutely excellent for producing sketches without too many problems regarding finish: they are sketches, naturally they can be improved. They are like drafts for writing.

However, Inktober has also shown me (again!) that with my back issues (degenerative disk syndrome, slipped disks, etc) it can be difficult at times to keep the position necessary for drawing, ie. sitting. I can write half lying down, can’t successfully/comfortably draw in that position. Not yet anyway.  So, yes, I missed some days 🙂


I like roses a lot, especially stylized ones. This one was drawn using gold ink by Windsor & Newton (thank you Frankie!), black marker and a fine line unbranded pen.


Let me know what you think! 🙂
