Inktober 2017, day 1-9

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

October is here, and with it comes cool winds, crunchy leaves, and ink art! There is an official prompt list, which I followed for exactly one day, oops. Instead, I’m concentrating on drawing things that make me happy this time around, with a side of clearing out my daunting commissions queue, so expect a hodgepodge of whatever mood strikes me throughout the month.

Autumn Leaves

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Autumn Leaves by Amy Crook

Autumn Leaves, 7″x5″ brush and ink on paper

Happy Thanksgiving* from America!

Despite everything about the country turning into a slow-burning trash fire, I’m still really grateful for a lot of things in life. My patrons who support me, my friends who put up with me, my family who loves me, and even my cats.

I asked my Patreon patrons to request two sketches last month to help fill out my Inktober calendar, and this was Kim’s second request. I used four different J. Herbin inks, including the lovely gold-accented Rouge Hematite, and did a loose, tumbling clutter of fallen leaves, blown together by an unseen wind. I can just hear the crunch-crunch of them underfoot.

You can get this lovely image on a card in my Etsy shop, and celebrate your own love of the changing seasons.

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!

Tsundoku

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

Tsundoku, word art by Amy Crook

Tsundoku: the condition of acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them,
5″x7″ brush and J. Herbin 1670 ink on paper

A bit of fancy-ink word art for Kim’s Patreon sketch. I loaded up my lovely J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey ink into a water brush and noodled around making a big pile of books for her to not read.

Because obviously I would never do this.*

*by never I mean always, my To Be Read pile will outweigh me when I die
