inktober 28 black cat

Inktober and Drawlloween day 28- Black Cat.

A little black cat and friendly spider silhouette for today’s drawing. I’m really liking watering down and layering ink recently.

Inktober and Drawlloween day 10, 11, 12- Alien, Raven, Moon

Having to post these together as I didn’t find the time over the weekend to get to my laptop to upload these.

These drawings are all tiny ones in my A6 sketchbook, definitely done for quickness but I still quite like how they turned out. The Raven and Moon piece evolved from very messy doodles.

The Moon piece also started out as a doodle that was supposed to be a wolf silhouette in font of a moon but the ‘wolf’ form that I sketched out reminded me of Haku (in his dragon form) from Spirited Away so I went with that.

All three drawings are inked with Uni Pin black fineliners, Daler Rowney acrylic ink and a couple of small, detail brushes.

I dreamed of the moon as a timeless clock, acrylic ink, acrylic paint, ink pen, ink stamp, collage on card, 12 x 21cm

My penultimate piece in my Loqui series. I think this one really reflects many of the techniques I have been trying out recently.

I wanted to have a lot of imagery in this piece but also for it to not look overcrowded. I did plan the composition of this one quite precisely.

The poem:

I dreamed of the moon as a timeless clock


As if it slipped off its face

into the ocean

of the night.

Not an utter tick,

just the soft silver-blue

of the waves in its light.

Faceless but infamous,

as anonymous

as the stars we laid under and named by numbers.

 

A distant whisper of hands

as mute as swan.

Nerves bound

in the muffling pillows

fed to the warm sheets

of the waterless sand.

I saw a gull glide, dreamless.

A slide along the air.

No qualms,

no ties

just the slow

exhale

of horizon

under its wing.
