Inktober 2018 Revisited… a Video!

I’ve meant to do this for months… nothing better than a deadline to prompt a procrastinator to “get the lead out”!

A friend in a mutual Facebook group put out the challenge to sketch daily… “organic shapes from observation”… and Daily Potato was born. It was October, it was time for Inktober, and it was destiny… I chose to do a mashup of Inktober, #dailypotato, and finally filling the Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Journal with pre-painted spreads I created in Roz Stendahl’s online class “Textures”.

When doing these month-long projects I like to have the framework of a theme, however loosely defined, to help me focus. I tend to follow that plan the first week or so but as the month progresses boredom sets in. In order to keep it interesting and fun I find it’s important to start reaching and experimenting. Raiding my stash of multicolored FW Acrylic Inks was definitely the best part of this project!

Enjoy the short video, it’s less than 4 minutes long. I hope you like seeing how my pages progressed through the month.

    • Thanks again Regina… I love seeing how the book flows now. Before the ink drawing the backgrounds made the book seem disjointed… the drawings pulled it together.
