Inktober Day 31: Ripe

Well, maybe this one is a little past ripe.

Well, there ya have it, the last of the Inktober challenges. A puking pumpkin a fitting end on Halloween.

Inktober Day 30: Catch

Oh, so many ways to interpret the word 'catch.' Catch a cold, catch a fish monster, catch a facehugger... And a wide receiver catching a severed head. Watch the splatter when you spike it.

Inktober Day 29: Injured

Today's word prompt was 'injured.' 

"It's only a flesh wound!"

Inktober Day 28: Ride

Today's word prompt is 'ride.' It's the last ride for this fella...

Go Figure! Sketch Night At Rainy Day

This past Saturday night was the monthly Go Figure! sketch night at Rainy Day Art Supply. This month, our model was Mary Perrin dressed as Edward Scissorhands. And a fine Scissorhands she was, with the mannerisms and all.

Besides our host, Kelly O'Hara, some Detroit notables were on hand. Jay Fosgitt, Darian Wolfe, Jason Westlake and Dave Linabury. Check out their artwork!

Inktober Day 27: Coat

Today's word prompt is 'coat.' This guy has places to go, places to be. 

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Inktober Day 26: Dark

Today's word prompt is 'dark.' As in Darkman! Sure, why not?

Inktober Day 25: Tasty

This is from experience. I know this first hand. My dogs find me very tasty.

Inktober Day 24: Dizzy

I was going to go with a ditzy Ivanka Trump, but the word prompt wasn't 'dumbass.' so I went with the man himself, Dizzy. 

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Inktober Day 23: Ancient

Today's word prompt was 'ancient,' so here's a little Mummy's Shroud action for ya.

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Inktober Day 22: Ghost

Today's word prompt is 'ghost,' so I thought to combine the singer of Ghost as a ghost, as well. It was this or a sheet with two holes cut out for eyes. I'm all or nothing it seems.

Inktober Day 21: Treasure

Today's word prompt was 'treasure.'

Inktober Day 20: Tread

For today's official Inktober word prompt, I present 'tread.' It could be a commercial. It could. 
Traction in all conditions.

Inktober Day 19: Sling

You know... Sling as in Sling Blade. Although my Billy Bob Thornton might just look more like Harry Belafonte. I'm seeing a little of both. Weird.

Inktober Day 18: Misfit

A little play on the Misfits logo for the word of the day, Misfit.

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Inktober Day 17: Ornament

Today's official word prompt was 'ornament.' So, a Halloweeny type ornament for ya.

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Inktober Day 16: Wild

Today's word is from the place where those things are generally found. Wild. It's where they are.
And a little bit of Sendak style thrown in to boot.

Inktober Day 15: Legend

The official Inktober word prompt for today is 'legend.' You know it. 

Monday, October 14, 2019

Inktober Day 14: Overgrown

Today's word prompt is 'overgrown,' so here's my version of a swamp monster type thing. 

Sunday, October 13, 2019

Inktober Day 13: Ash

I have to say, I'm a bit surprised that I haven't seen any Ash sketches for today's word prompt. So, by all means, let me be the one to give you the obvious choice. Ash. 

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Inktober Day 12: Dragon

Today's word prompt was 'dragon.' Here's a very old one.

Friday, October 11, 2019

Inktober Day 11: Snow

Today's word prompt was 'snow.' So... John Snow in the snow? Yeah sure, why not.

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Inktober Day 10: Pattern

What to do, what to do... How can I make the word 'pattern' into something Halloweenie? My mind usually goes in the Looney Toons direction, so I thought of that one with the scientist challenging the chameleon and the plaid pattern came up and somehow that led to this, a skeletal chameleon with a chameleon skin type pattern for the background. And there ya go.

Inktober Day 9: Swing

Today's word prompt was 'swing.' I was going to do a torso or something on a playground swing set, but hey, that would have been wildly inappropriate, so instead, you get an adult skeleton, well, swinging.

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

Inktober Day 8: Frail

Today's official Inktober word prompt is 'frail.' I can picture this fragile old zombie-like spinster wobbling about on her maybe sturdy cane around the estate. 

Monday, October 7, 2019

Inktober Day 7: Enchanted

Oh, the great and powerful Twatwaffle!

I was going to go in an entirely different direction, but today's headlines made the obvious choice for me. His "great and unmatched wisdom" is truly unrivaled. 

How does anyone take this clown seriously? I'd really like to know.

Inktober Day 6: Husky

 The word of the day is 'husky.' I don't have much to say about this guy, other than that, yes, he (it) is husky. 

Saturday, October 5, 2019

Inktober Day 5: Build

Today's Inktober word prompt is 'build.' As in Bob the BUILDer. 

Friday, October 4, 2019

Inktober Day 4: Freeze

That's Mr. Freeze to you. Actually, it's Mr. Cold, but I quibble. 

As you can see, today's word prompt is 'Freeze.'


This is a logo that I did recently for a friend's event. It seems like when I do this kind of work, it's a fish or a pig.

Inktober Day 3: Bait

Hello? Why are we meeting in the attic?

Today's Inktober word prompt is 'Bait.' I was watching Amityville Horror today, so I threw in the attic windows from that house. 

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Inktober Day 2: Mindless

The official word prompt for day 2 of Inktober is 'mindless.'

I initially wanted to go with a Rudy Guliani type character. Then I thought of a zombie. Then I thought of a Trump supporter. Well hell, why not include all three? Kind of redundant, I know...

Just picture him stumbling about, gurgling 'no brains... no brains!'

Inktober Day 1: Ring

It's that time of year again. Time for Inktober, the daily sketch exercise. I'll give it a go again this year, as I was fairly happy with what I did last year. And I find that it's a good exercise to get my day going, a little warm-up if you will. And, as with last year, I will try to keep with an October/creepy/horror vibe going. Some of the official word prompts are less than inspiring, so I will take that as a challenge.

Today's prompt is 'ring.'
