A story in a bottle

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:

A child in flight

For my seventh inktober drawing I wanted to challenge myself and draw another child. I have somehow managed to avoid drawing people for a few years while working as a freelance illustrator and wanted to use inktober this year to challenge myself in several areas. I normally don’t draw people or use color much, so my goal is to have at least one forth of my inktober drawings include human characters and all be done in color! I feel like I am making good progress thus far 🙂
