Inktober 16: Amulet

Share this post:

inktober16

Today’s prompt (courtesy of Jen Vaughn) was “100% Curse-free amulet. Honest!”

Mine is dangling from an ancient standing-stone carved with arcane symbols. Because that’s also weird and spooky and definitely not cursed.

Inktober 15: The Grave of Shane MacGowan

Share this post:

Fear not, lovely punkers, Shane MacGowan is not dead yet. But when he does kick off, I imagine it will be kicking AND screaming, and probably smashing with pub trays.

Text is from the lyrics of “The Sickbed of Cuchulainn:”

Then they’ll take you to Cloughprior and shove you in the ground
But you’ll stick your head back out and shout “We’ll have another round”
At the graveside of Cuchulainn we’ll kneel around and pray
And god is in his heaven, and Billy’s down by the bay

I doubt spiders and millipedes really crawl into people’s mouths at night, but it sure is creepy to imagine, so what better picture for Inktober/Drawlloween?

Taco Knight takes to the field to defend the honor of the taco! See him charge into the fray to face his enemies, the dastardly taco trash-talkers. He rides victorious into battle on his fiery steed Salsa to prove the worth of handheld tortilla-based foods.

Inktober 9: Ad for a Hitman

Share this post:

The prompts for my Inktober sketches are coming from Jen Vaughn. This one was, “Ad for a Hitman.” I imagined a ridiculous, full-page, glossy magazine ad in the style of the much-parodied sexy Calvin Klein perfume spots.

Inktober: Internal Demon & Cat Magic

Share this post:

This is why you shouldn’t have too many cats. They get into your runes and curse you, and then you end up with a case of demons.

Inktober Skull

Share this post:

This creepy drawing of poisonous mushrooms growing from the mouth of a skull is my first Inktober sketch of 2015. I had a pretty great osteology lab class in college, and I still tend to get sucked into the details of bones whenever I draw them. This isn’t the most anatomically accurate skull I’ve ever drawn (trying to work quickly) but I did put in some features you’d find on the real thing.

Here are some more detailed ones from my old lab notebook, for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing:

Pineapples are so hardcore with their prickly attitudes and tough exteriors. But we all know they’re really sweet on the inside.

The majestic, golden pineapple. It’s the king and/or queen of fruits. (It is so above gender.) Bow down to the holy pineapple and display your allegiance by buying a shirt or print at Redbubble or Society 6.
