Brighter greens and a beautiful orange sunset make this a much brighter city, too. The clouds were dyed a bit green from the glow of the city below, which stays away from mundane building shapes and strays into the fantastic, the strange, and the glorious.
What fantastical land have you always wanted to visit?*
*My answer? All of them
Above, you can see a close-up of one of my favorite buildings in this fantastical cityscape, and a flying monkey circling overhead. Below, this city glows in its frame, the colors a brilliance that will brighten up your space.

An alien city made of shadow rises up through a sky so thick with glittering golden stars it’s almost its own kind of light. A violet moon rises up behind it, huge and full, showing the buildings to be insubstantial, or perhaps existing on an entirely different plane than the light that goes right through them.
Last year’s Inktober brought the beautiful, bold Blood Moon 6. This year’s sequel features a much softer moon dripping with violet mystery, and a taller shadowy city glowing with its stolen light.
Which of these oddling structures is your favorite?
Above, you can see the exquisite detail on the shadowy, insubstantial buildings, and the beautiful texture of the violet moon. Below, the art looks gorgeous in a frame, just waiting for a permanent place to shine.

Inktober continues apace! It’s a busy week, so there’s some easy stuff and some more complex ink art. Some of these will be available as cards, some of them will be in a bookmark sale for my email list next month, and some of them are already spoken for. There’s even a couple of things destined for November’s Floating Gallery. Quite a variety!

It’s inevitable, living near San Francisco as I do, that I would revisit the Painted Ladies theme.
This time a soft, seafoam green permeates the beautiful Victorian row houses, each with a unique facade that nonetheless echoes its neighbors. The clouds above look like cotton puffs, fluffily floating along among the shining stars in the velvety black sky.
This paper is unique because it gets its color from a chemical process, so the black is lightfast. Though of course it’s never a good idea to put artwork in a sunny spot, it’s good to know it won’t become grey over the years.
Above, you can see a close-up of a few of the charming faces on the painted ladies. Below, they’re tucked into a simple frame, just waiting to add charm and elegance to your home.

The dull orange glow coming off this rusted, smoking ruin is a lovely, warm color that somehow still embodies the apocalyptic feel of it. It’s a color you only see in the sky when things have not gone according to plan.
The crows circling above the city are the final harbingers of doom, that sign that civilization has left and there’s nothing left but whatever the crows can pick over.
It sounds like the start of a fascinating story, doesn’t it?
Above, you can see a single bird circling above the ruins, blackened beams and smoke-smudged skies. Below, this mournful scene is framed for posterity, waiting to spark new tales and inspire post-apocalyptic ideas.
