Inktober 2021: Part 5

And done!  This the final recap of ink month.  Which are your favorites from this year’s challenge?  I have so many that I ended up really liking this year.  I combined three different prompt lists I found for this year’s challenge.  My drawings are based off of the prompts from the official Inktober list, Floral Inktober by @camilla_damsbro_art, and Spellstober by @smalltownspells.  The result of combining the three was a really cohesive body of work that has a nice farmhouse/cottagecore kind of vibe.

All the drawings from this week are 6×6, .05 Pigma Micron ink pen on Strathmore mixed media paper.  On a couple of the drawings I tried out a white pen – Uni-ball Signo Broad, and for the dark night sky I used a Copic Gasenfude Nylon Brush pen.  Check out my social media (@LauraJaenArt) for more pictures and videos from this year’s challenge.

I have just about all the designs added to my RedBubble shop on different kinds of merch – shirts, notebooks, bags, etc,   I also was finally able to find a non-rainy day to grab some matboard (to cut mats) so the originals will be available soon from my Etsy shop.

If you missed any or want to look back, here’s the previous week recaps:
