Inktober ’23 Prompt 1: Dream

An ink drawing on corrugated cardboard.

My relationship with ink is murky. I love the work of really good inkers but I’m rarely satisfied with my own work.

But it’s Inktober and I could use some prompts so I decided to try something for today.

The first prompt was “dream”. I started out doing something very planned and very geometric, but … ink and I got into our usual back and forth.

So I fell back on the old art school trick of working loose on scrap cardboard and I think it came out okay. It’s actually two pieces that ended up working well together.

India ink and a couple of pens.
