Inktober 17 – Carrying the world is a bit more conceptual and less cutesy unlike many of my previous inktober drawings. In any collection of drawings there’s always always an odd man out just like with people in real life. In some cases they might feel like they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders.
A small flower girl for inktober 16th. Sometimes I think that the reason we love to travel to distant countries with great nature is how large it all seems to us. Imagine only being a few inches tall, how beautiful even our own backyard be?
The leaves haven’t quite turned where I live, but I am starting to see many beautiful autumn pictures online from friends across the globe. Especially Westchester county brings back many good memories of spectacular fall weather and activities. I am super excited that fall is here. It is such a beautiful season.
Books are just wonderful. They come from nature and creativity and so they inspire. There is nothing more endearing than falling in love with imagined scenes from a book and bringing them to life with art.
In Denmark we had one of the absolutely warmest and most sunny Septembers in many many years. The late summer was warm and it came as a shock when autumn suddenly let the temperatures fall from 25 to 10 degrees overnight. So much for that transition jacket that will hang in the closet for yet another year. It will probably never see the light of day. Autumn is surely here now and with it comes the consistent rainfall that so often occurs in Denmark. Though I am not a fan of the cold or rain, I can’t help but feel excited about it at the same time. There is something very cozy about the days getting darker and wetter. We can cuddle up inside with candles and blankets and spend valuable time out family and friends. I get especially productive when the bright days doesn’t tempt me outside. Time to do hobby projects and read books. Now and then we will also brave the rain and feel the fresh wind give us a burst of energy. It makes our cheeks red and we feel alive. I love summer, but I get a nostalgic and artistic refreshening feeling every fall. There’s something so beautiful about the seasons turning. I feel so fortunate to be able to enjoy all of it.
Halloween is approaching rapidly and spooky things are staring to show up all around in stores and in town. For inktober 11th I did a purple haunted house for the occasion. I can’t wait to see all the beautiful Halloween decorations my city is preparing😀
Something that seams to always go with the theme of October and the upcoming holiday Halloween is the scarecrow. I wanted to use that for an inktober drawing, but I am not a huge fan of scary things though. Hence I decided to make a not so scary scarecrow instead. This bird is definitely not scared of him, and I would probably be more scared of the bird in comparison (: A cute scarecrow and his companion for inktober 10th.
I have been holding off with the pumpkins because I wanted to save them for later in October, but now I couldn’t control myself any longer. I love pumpkins! I love pumpkin carving, pumpkin fields, even the giant boxes of pumpkins in the supermarkets… Pumpkins are simply what sums up the beauty of autumn for me. The natural vibrant colors that reminds us of the season we are changing into. So of Inktober 9, I made a little pumpkin house, because what would be cooler than living in one :p
I just love the month of October. I find so much inspiration from all these artist participating in the Inktober project from all over. Social media is booming with beautiful images and it gies you a reason to stop up and practice some personal art. I don’t know how Jake Parker came up with the idea of Inktober, but I am so very grateful that he did. For my eighth inktober drawing this year I wanted to do something a bit more conceptual, so I decided to take the message in a bottle concept, but create a visual story instead of message and this is what I ended up with:
