As promised, 3-in-1 sketches today – I can catch up with the challenge, and you’re not overwhelmed by my posts.
Day 1: A Bench in My Garden
Just a quick pen sketch to warm up hand and eye. Yes, the bench arms are different! One was broken and my lovely partner added a makeshift one, which is now the cat’s favourite to sharpen her claws!
Day 2: A Weird Bird with Flowers
There is a pale reflection of me in the bird’s eye (okay, of someone) but I wasn’t happy with it. I do like the flowers, though, and the fading background. On the other hand, there is no underlying pencil drawing, so in all, I am happy with this. I think it has a slight creepy feel to it. What do you think?
Day 3: Mouth Monster
I think sometimes we all feel as if we’re falling in some horrendous pit…no?
Just me, then 😉 I may clean up this with proper inking and make a Monsters Series. What do you think?
Here they are. Drawing a sketch every day is such a good exercise, and haring is even better. I Hope you feel encouraged to try it yourself, and again, if you have any prompts for me to draw, feel free to comment below!
To tomorrow 🙂
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!

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.
You can read my story “Inversion” alongside others in the Yellow Booke for free HERE.
