Inktober Day 15: Weak

I can't think of anything weaker than these mental midgets. They carry tiki 'torches' for pete's sake.

Superior race, my ass.

Inktober Day 14: Clock

Ok, so all caught up for now. Today's word prompt is 'clock.'

Will we be able to figure it out before times runs out?

Inktober Day 13: Guarded

Because of yesterday's Witch event in Wyandotte I'm a little late in getting the next sketch up. It was almost done yesterday, but alas, wasn't meant to be. So, here is 'guarded.' I'll see what I can do about today's word prompt and if not the tomorrow.

In the meantime, don't touch my pumpkin.

Inktober Day 12: Whale

Today's word prompt is 'whale.' This whale skull belongs to that of a Culver's beaked whale.

Someone should make a movie about animal skeletons and ghosts that come back to haunt us for all the cruelty inflicted on them by us. That would be cool.

Inktober Day 11: Cruel

Today's Inktober word prompt is 'Cruel.' 

And that's what this is, plain and simple.

Inktober Day 10: Flowing

A little splash of color for today's Inktober image. Otherwise, it could be thought of as something else, you know, something just plain old wrong.

Anyways, today's word prompt is 'flowing.' 

Witches of Wyandotte

This Saturday, the 13th, you will find me at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, MI for Shop The Dotte's event Witches of Wyandotte. So, I am hearing that there will be a parade of witches through the downtown area and maybe some kind of zombie event later in the day. The event goes from 11am to 6pm, so join me and gallery director and all-around fun guy Jeremy Hansen for the festivities. I will be doing sketches and will have my more horror related prints and such for sale. I will even bring some copies of my latest collection of cartoons, The Feral Cartoonist, which does have a horror/crime section, so it fits. 

So, click on the above links for details and if you are in the area, stop on by. It should be interesting.

Inktober day 9: Precious

So, the word 'Precious' is going to elicit one of two responses by artists for this day's Inktober drawing. I chose the obvious one.

Although, I did toy with the idea of a very large Gollum....

Inktober Day 8: Star

So, here we are a week in to the Inktober challenge. So far so good. Today's prompt word is 'Star.' I was going to do a cheesy cartoon star, a literal cartoon star as a celebrity type star, but thought it would be more appropriate to do something with Lou Reed, since I am currently reading his bio. So, I tried to portray this star as an aging star/person, but with the Velvet Underground glasses. I'm not sure just what Reed thought of stardom, it seems like it was a difficult balance even if he desired it. I don't think that Lou Reed ever pretended to be hopeful or optimistic, but I do believe he was striving for it.

Stars in the eyes of a rock n roll animal.

Inktober Day 7: Exhausted

I was going to add spears stuck in this guy's torso, but then thought that that might not add to the sense that a dead guy is exhausted. Exhausted is exhausted. But then again, it could have provided a little more of a backstory...

Inktober Day Seven.

Inktober Day Six: Drooling

'Drooling' is today's Inktober word prompt and trying to keep with a more Halloween vibe, here is the most thoughtful zombie ever. He has a bowl that he can collect his own drool in. But then again, since he doesn't have a lower jaw, perhaps the drool is to soften those brains some. It could go either way, he looks a bit crazy.

Inktober Day Five: Chicken

So, what is better than a chicken playing chicken? It would be a lot of noise (assuming that they were bad-ass chickens), probably a lot of feathers and hopefully, entertaining.

The coupe from the coop!

As you have already assumed, todays Inktober prompt word is 'chicken.'

Inktober Day Four: Spell

Today's Inktober word prompt is 'Spell.'

I wonder just how many used a wizard or witch for their image. Mine is kind of a nerdy wizard, maybe a professor of sorts who likes letters. And chalkboards.

Inktober Day Three: Roasted

Inktober Day Three's prompt word is Roasted. So, what is the human equivalent of bacon. The pig is sure to know.

Inktober Day Two: Tranquil

Inktober Day Two.

Today's prompt is 'Tranquil.' I'm not sure if this little guy is at peace or if he's half-baked. Either way, I like to think that he's just resting after a long day of chomping on bugs. And he found a nice, comfortable stump to do it on.

Inktober Day One: Poisonous

So, I'm going to try this Inktober thingie that all the kids are talking about. A drawing a day for the month of October based on word prompts. Day One is 'Poisonous.'

Inktober is a bit different from Drawlloween, or whatever it is called, but I'm going to try to make each day somewhat Halloweenish or horrorish, if you will. 

So, hear ya go, Day One. I know people just love yellowjackets like I do...
