Inktober series

Despite expecting that I would only be doing a few ink drawings, I am still going strong!

I draw every day, it's just the words that sometimes take a while longer.

And I don't succeed in posting every day.

But who cares? I'm enjoying making these ladies.

After I've drawn them I search for a quote that fits them well. They all have their own character and carry their own message, so it can sometimes take a while before I find a quote that fits them.

I try to post on Instagram every day. A lot of people are participating.

Who knows, I might even finish this challenge!

I'm already thinking of maybe making a little booklet out of these ....

But first of course I need to finish my calendars. Hopefully by next week I'll have a few more pages done!

That's it for now. Linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. In case you haven't had enough yet: here are my weekly funnies and thinkies :-)


Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your day, and for those in the path of a storm: stay safe! ♥ ♥ ♥

Quick post

Uh-oh, it's way too late already and I should be in bed. So just a quick post today.

I'm determined to get a map-calendar ready for next year, so I finished another map painting :-)

And after a long deliberation I decided to join Inktober again. I've never been able to finish this challenge since it's really a very inconvenient time of the year, so I probably won't finish it this year either, but I'll do as many as I can.

I didn't feel like following the prompts, so I decided to stick to my own theme: one-line women (well, it's multiple lines actually, but it's completely done without lifting the pen from the paper) with quotes. Quotes about strength and empowerment. Here are the first 4 days:

That's it! Except for my funnies and thinkies of course :-)

Will be linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Off to bed now. Thanks for your visit and your comments. They are truly appreciated. Wishing you a lovely day ♥ ♥ ♥

Trying to be zen

The comments on last week's post offered me a great way to look at things differently, and while I'm still having a hard time with it, I'm learning to be content with what I was able to do, and not get so frustrated when I can't do everything I want to. So thanks all of you who gave me your thoughts and advice :-)

I played in my art journal this week. Guess I needed a break from the doodling ;-) Plus I'm thinking about participating in Inktober, and this is a bit of a practice start. Although I already know I won't be able to make an elaborate drawing each day, but that doesn't matter, I don't want to stress about it.

I also finished another mapface. I hope I'll be able to get enough of these done for a new calendar.
We'll see ....

And here are my weekly funnies and thinkies :-)

Linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow! Thanks for your visit. I hope you'll all have a great day. 
Take care and see you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
