Everything is just pure madness. This is quite a large ink painting on watercolour paper. I really enjoyed inking at this scale and I will hopefully do some more. A would love to make a series of mad women. Because it is what we ought to be.

Inktober 2016

Not much done during inktober this year. I wasn’t really inspired to do black and white stuff. That inspiration has come now in november instead.


Inktober 2015

This year’s Inktober I aimed for strictly black and white without pencils. I kept away from pencils but could not help but add some colour on the last ones. The nicest thing about Inktober is that I can compare to previous year and see some development. Click on the images to see a larger file.

Brush And Pen Making

It is in the middle of inktober and  should be inking away. Most days I’m too tired to focus so a couple of days ago I fooled around with pieces of bamboo from my garden. I cut one as a pen  and took some of my hair to make a brush with another piece. I have curly hair which is just as difficult to control on the end of a stick as on my head.
