While I’m in the midst of doing another ’10 Black and White Days’ photography project, I figurre I should get around to putting the Inktober 2022 illustrations through the customary WordPress display.
Albeit fairly late.
So, there were certain aspects to this year’s attempts, in that budget was a factor. No fancy pens or brushes; no fancy drawing book. I found an old fountain pen and that was the primary stylo for drawing (along with an old bottle of Quink ink that still ahd ink in it). And I had this slightly water damaged drawing book I got years back from Daiso (RM6.00) which had been sitting aside for some time.
I decided to use both of them. It also didn’t give much leeway for anything fancy. But there was an idea about tackling the prompts for this year.
Day 01 – Gargoyle
Yes, it was a gargling gargoyle, kicking off the idea…
Day 02 – Scurry
Yep, gotta scurry from the curry.
Day 03 – Bat
It wasn’t as clear as I would have wanted the Cat-Bat with his Bat-bat.
Day 04 – Scallop
It was simply a scallop that packed a wallop.
Day 05 – Flame
Just for effect, I dug out a coloured brush pen to bring out the burning dangers of a fiery flamenco. It definitely attracted some attention on Twitter moreso than on Instagram when it was posted.
Day 06 – Bouquet
A more visual gag to try and reflect the various bouquets going on.
Day 07 – Trip
And the gag runs dry when I couldn’t really rip into trip aside from simply tearing the T and adding a caption.
But it was the start of something different, and we’ll get into it with the next set.
