I felt like I did a lot of drawings during Inktober, but I still have around 7 days of drawings still to go! Also, how is it only a month till Christmas?!
The weeks just get crazier I swear! After all the things that have happened this year, I really do wonder what 2017 can throw at me that would still make me feel surprised.
In electronics, there’s an unspoken rule that microchips actually work on magic smoke, but once you can see or smell that magic smoke coming out of the chip, that chip is never coming back. 2016 is making my smoke come dangerously close to leaking. It’s probably not as bad as I think it is, but there’s just so many things I need to think about and I just don’t want to think about any of it.
Don’t fret though, I know my brain patterns and they’re cyclic. Give me a few months and I’ll be right as rain again.
Just finished season 2 of Rick and Morty and I’ve got to say, it’s a great show, just make sure you don’t watch it around young children or people that you don’t want to judge you. Alternatively, watch it around these people and don’t give a damn; it’s your life, don’t let others control you.
Did a big clean of my room today and tossed a lot of things out; it’s funny how physical objects so easily spark previously forgotten memories. I’m feeling pretty ready to move out though, just need to get my potential housemates to bite the bullet and agree to a goal moving out date.
What a crazy day and crazier world we live in.
True fact, I struggled a lot looking at spider references for this picture. Originally I was going to draw huntsman spiders, but just couldn’t handle a full page of image search results!
So after drawing (and continuing to draw) a month’s worth of horror related pictures, I thought I’d share with you what I arguably think is the physical form of all nightmares combined. Far out I love coffee.
Love deer, such majestic animals.
And because this is my little corner of the internet, I just need to use this space to vent for a second. Had a great weekend with friends, but told a pretty low level lie to my family to avoid getting into a situation with them. I covered my tracks carefully and without any outside influence, they will never know what I said wasn’t the complete truth. HOWEVER, I just had a major realisation that there is one extremely loose string I didn’t think about tying up, and it will most probably get me busted. So now, I’m going to have to deal with two situations because I made a bad call. Fan-fucking-tastic. Have I learnt anything from this? Yeah, be honest; it’s a lot less effort.
So how was your weekend?
Scandinavian folklore is extremely interesting; I highly recommend playing “Year Walk” as it does a brilliant job of introducing the topic and some of the beliefs. Next thing you know, it’ll be 1am, you’ll have a browser full of tabs open and be fully engrossed in finding out more.
And on that note, I’ve run out of days in October. But why let the fun end there?! Like last year, over the next few weeks I’ll be catching up on the prompts that I missed drawing Drawlloween, so the ghosts and ghouls aren’t going away just yet!
And for all of you who also took part in Inktober, whether you made it through 31 days or just 3, congratulations! Every bit of drawing helps to improve, so I hope you’ve all learnt a little and had a lot of fun.
