My back is aching these days (I only tried to do some tidying up, not even something fun!) so I’m slower than I would like to be, but! I did find my lovely Intense Black China Ink by Lefranc & Bourgeois, a couple of brushes and my pen nibs.
Expect a lot more sploshes of ink coming your way 🙂
I played around a bit with two of these – can you guess which ones? I let myself enjoy the simple act of dipping the brush in water and ink and then let it interact with the paper. Only once dry, I looked to see what shapes were revealed.
All done in biro and China Ink.
DAY 11: Our shadows grow with us.
DAY 12: The Silent Dragon.
DAY 13: We feel small against Oppression
Let me know what you think!
I was asked to draw cats, so here we go. I do have more cats sketches (some drawn already, some for another day). I love dogs and cats equally, but it is easier to draw a cat when you have one around.
TYPOGRAPHY CAT – done in pen (in fact, the pen you can see in the picture).
I love typography and I will do a lot more of it. In this case, I wanted to find the cat in the letters, but make it like a puzzle, to resemble cats’ character. Even the kitty has its head tilted in curiosity 🙂

I’m finally using heavy ink (it is the point of the challenge, after all), which I don’t use often. However, I am already seeing the potential and nice effects you can obtain with it. I particularly like the silhouette effect in the Moggy Sketch on the right (see pic below for close up).

Already thinking of Day 6 and 7! Any comment appreciated, and if you want me to draw something specifically, just post it below.
