• Inktober 2017 Wrap Up

      by Kay on November 2, 2017 , 9 Comments

      Inktober 2017 is over and I could not have had more fun with the project this year! I loved sketching out tattooed people each day. Using just a ballpoint pen was incredibly rewarding. It was great to go back to something so simple that can have such range. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Copic markers, but it’s always nice to have a reminder that you can create without breaking the bank. I’ll definitely be making more pen drawings even with Inktober being over! I learned quite a bit from Inktober 2017 as well! One of the most surprising […]

      So far, Inktober 2017 is going GREAT! This year I decided to go really simple with supplies and just use ballpoint pen. I’m drawing portraits of tattooed people (because I loved the idea of drawing INKed people for INKtober). I rarely draw men and wanted to get some practice in so I’m making sure at least half of my portraits are of dudes. I am absolutely loving drawing these portraits! Ballpoint pen is so much fun. It’s simple, but very versatile and allows you to get a lot of different line weights and tones with just one pen. Here are […]

      Holy shit guys, my Patreon launch day is here!! Today, my Patreon page is officially live and running. Yeehoo!! I have no idea what will come of this, but I’m so excited to dive into this venture. So what is Patreon? Well, if you haven’t read my post touting my love for it, here’s a brief summary. Patreon is a way to support artists and other creatives. You pledge a monthly donation, starting at as little as $1 per month, and for that you get perks! Becoming a Patron of mine gets you early access to art before I post […]

    • Happy Mail Update

      The other day I had the realization that I haven’t done a Happy Mail Update since I first launched the project. Oops! Time to rectify that. It’s been four months since I kicked off my Happy Mail project and it’s going great! I’ve sent out three pieces of art to three different people in my address book and it’s felt great! Creating a piece of art as a surprise for someone never ceases to bring my joy and happiness. March’s piece went to writer Sonya Cheney. Although we’ve never met in real life, I see in many ways a kindred […]
