INKTOBER DAYS 11, 12 & 13

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

We are small against oppressive powers

Let me know what you think!

INKTOBER Day 4 and 5

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.

DAY 4:

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 🙂

DAY 5

DOUBLE KITTY PAGE -done in pen and Berol permanent marker

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.

Thanks!
