Inktober 2017

I decided to try and keep up with Inktober this year. I’m not really following along with the official prompt list, but I just treated myself to some beautiful Prismacolor markers the other day, so I am sticking to a certain color palate all month long. I also started a day late… but better late than never right? 


A portrait of my grandfather

I love to draw. I’ve been doodling as far back as I can remember. There’s something very soothing about the sound and feel of a pencil on paper, and I could sit for hours while I create a drawing from start to finish. It had been a while since I had drawn anything though because I let life get in the way, and I made excuses about how I had other things to do. But I was upset I had let it go for so long. 

However, I was reminded the other day that the things that are important to me are never a waste of time, and that in order to do those things, I just have to…do them. 

So I did. 

Here’s a portrait I made of my grandfather.
