InkTober and Month of Fear 2018
I knew I wanted to take part in Month of Fear this year, but also attend InkTober. I didn't have time for both, so I decided to overlap them, and did five artworks in ink, following the Month of Fear subjects: "Lies", "Beauty", "Tears", "Blindness", and "Truth".
All are done on bristol carton for its smooth surface, three are large (50×70cm), two are smaller; I mostly used chinese brushes and dip pens (which cost me half a dozen nibs that I washed down the drain with the entire bucket of water). My ink supply is now seriously diminished - except for that one-litre bottle of black, that still holds some - so this has the extra side benefit of allowing me to go shopping in the art store!
All five are also available for purchase in my Etsy shop if you like them: www.etsy.com/shop/JSLArtShop?r…
