This is the last day of Inktober 2017 and I did it!!  Thirty-one straight days of little comics featuring a German Shepherd puppy--sticking with the official Inktober prompts.

What a blast!

Can't wait until next year.

A Watercolor Sketch in an Exhibit

I am excited to share that I was asked to contribute a little watercolor sketch to an exhibit coming up this fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The exhibit is called Capturing Shadows and Lights:  West Michigan Artists Inspired by Creative Youth Center Student Writing.

The exhibit runs from October 16 through November 18 at Madcap (downtown).  It benefits the CYC's creative writing and literacy tutoring programs.

This is an exhibit of visual art responding to student writing in the 2017 CYC student anthology.

We were asked to read the anthology, written by students of all ages K-12, and pick one to respond to visually.

The phrase "you are the moon blooming in the sky" caught my imagination.  So this piece is titled "moon, blooming."

It's a 5 x 7 watercolor on Strathmore 400 watercolor paper, matted in an 8 x 10 mat.

I'm honored to be part of this project!  If you live in West Michigan, check it out!

Comics about German Shepherd Puppies for Inktober 2017

I have decided to try to do all thirty-one of my Inktober 2017 drawings as one panel comics about German Shepherd puppies.  I have had many.  I have one now.

I will also use the official prompt list, just to keep me thinking up new things.

I am working in a gray toned Stillman and Birn alpha notebook, approximately 3x5.  My plan is to use black and white ink and maybe a splash of color here and there.  I'm starting with my Pentel Pocket Brush pen.

Here are days 1 and 2.

 This will be fun!
