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.

I Am Not Here to Please You

Monday, March 6th, 2017

I Am Not Here to Please You by Amy Crook for The Doubleclicks video

I Am Not Here to Please You, 12″x9″ pen & ink, Copic marker, and watercolor on Strathmore bristol for The Doubleclicks video “Women Know Math”

The Doubleclicks got 50 women and non-binary artists to illustrate their amazing video for Women Know Math, and I got to be part of it! I am absolutely in love with this song, the video, and everything it has to say.

Although they licensed the art for this specific use, the original is up for grabs in all its cat-filled glory. A rare self-portrait by the artist, with special guest appearances by Podsworth and Belladonna, this drawing bursts out of is boundaries with glorious movement and joy.

Above, there is possibly the most accurate drawing I’ve ever made of Belladonna, and some pj pants I only wish I owned. Below, you can see this drawing framed, including the very faint pencil reminder up in the top portion with the text I was meant to using.

Make Do

Saturday, February 4th, 2017

Make Do, word art by Amy Crook

Make Do, 8″x8″ ink on Fluid watercolor paper

Make what you have
Do what you need

This gorgeous word art mixes rich rose, vivid violet, and luscious lavender inks. The brilliant colors and motivational message would bring brightness to any studio, office, or home.

Whenever you’re frustrated by not having the just-right tools or supplies, you can look at this lovely ink art and remind yourself to make do.

Above, you can see the edges of vivid purple and dusky blue on the big splashing word art framing the loose calligraphy of the main aphorism. Below, this bright word art is in a big frame, ready to cheer up any space with its inspiring message.

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
