I'm joining in with Inktober over on instagram for the first time this year. The only rules: draw something every day, and they have to be done with ink, although you can use a pencil to outline first.  You can post with #inktober or #inktober2016

I decided to just go for it and draw with ink straight off. I'm using a book I made out of gelli-printed envelopes, so the size and shape is a challenge, too :)

Above is the first drawing, done in Copics, finishing touches using a white gel pen. This is a left-handed, five minute sketch.

Day 2 - the head of a flamingo. Uniball and Sharpie.

Day 3: a waterlily done with a uniball pen.

Day 4: a grasping hand. Uniball. 

Day 5: a pair of eyes. Sharpie, Uniball, and gel pens.

I'm posting daily on instagram, but doing a weekly round-up here on the blog. Are you joining in the fun? Some of the artists are absolutely amazing!


  1. These are gorgeous! Especially love the flower! I'm taking part as well.

  2. Oh I'm loving these wonderful sketches, Tracy...they are so beautiful, especially on the Gelli-printed backgrounds. Well done!


Thanks for dropping by. I read and appreciate all your comments.
