It is here! INKTOBER TIME 🙂
Yes, I know that the month has actually started 3 days ago, but when dealing with poor health, you have to compromise. So, 3 days in, but I will still participate in this fun challenge. Determined, it is me 🙂
What is Inktober? Started several years ago by J. Parker, it is now a drawing challenge join by thousands. Simply, ink a sketch daily for the duration of the month. At the moment, I’m using a pen, just your average writing pen, but will get myself some nice and proper inking pens asap.
This year there is also an official list of prompts. I haven’t decided yet if I will follow it or not. But! If you have any prompt, anything that you’d like me to draw, feel free to post it in the comments! If I feel inspired by it, I will draw it 🙂
In order not to spam you, I will group my drawing for Day 1, 2 and 3 in one post. The rest will be done orderly, one drawing per day 🙂
Thank you for following, and hey, jump in and do it along with me 🙂
I’ve been posting a few WiP* sketches over on my at account: Sil_artscribe, on Instagram and Facebook (I use my usual twitter account for my art as well, no changes there).
Mixed media collage (Heart Words); Fantasy pen/watercolour sketch (can you guess the inspiration for it?); Tarot Card study, from concept to colour tests.
Here they are:

Filed under Art, drawing, my art
while my writing proceeds slowly but steadily, I’ve decided to participate in the #AbundantArtShow!
It’s an 8 day virtual mini-show of artists’ work from all over the world. Over the next 8 days, I’ll be showing some of my recent pen sketches as well as sharing my favorites from other artists.
Hope you’ll enjoy seeing new artwork, and feedback and comments will be much appreciated!
You can find the show challenge rules HERE 🙂
My short story “Inversion” (a pinch of Gothic horror, a touch of psycho-talk, a re-reading and re-telling of the Greek Minotaur’s legend) is published in the Yellow Booke, HERE.
This is the illustration for my story kindly provided by Old Tales Press’ editor M. Grant Kellermeyer:
I love it, love the stark b/w contrast and little details that really connect to the story and to the way I envisioned this retelling of the myth.

I was reminded of this short film, written and filmed in 48 hours for the Mental Health film challenge. I wrote the script as quickly as I could, and then we filmed and it was super tiring and stressing and such great fun!
Here’s the film:
The film didn’t win the challenge, but received a special mention. The brief was to show how pervasive and limiting mental issues are (whatever the specific illness: anxiety, depression, etc). I thought to make it a Presence, tangible for the sufferer, always present (hence the title) and also something to fight against, with support. Support is fundamental.
