Inktober – day 1- Perhaps a little late…

And now for something completely different.

My sketching habits have slipped by the wayside recently, so I’ve decided to take part in InkTober, an initiative to encourage regular sketching.  The idea is to create a sketch a day or one a week. I find challenging myself helps with motivation. So I’ll share my sketches here as I do them. I still plan to post my regular new work posts, so this will be something extra.

Please note, these will be sketches and not fully worked up drawings. In other words, there will be errors, but that’s the beauty of sketches, they are raw and spontaeous, and not always accurate.

I fully intended to start Inkober on day 1, but stuff happened, so I’m a little behind.

Here is my first ink sketch, done during my son’s Japanese lesson this morning. We meet the tutor in Costa, so I tend to have a coffee and a read or sketch while I’m waiting…

It’s a hard life innit?
