Sansevieria Plant

  • #Inktober2021 prompt: Sprout.

Did you know that NASA did a study in 1989 to find ways to detoxify space stations? The sansevieria (aka snake plant) was one the plants identified as a possibility. However, the study did not go on to determine how many plants were necessary for detoxification.

A Compass Rose


  • #DoodlewashOctober2021: Rose.
  • #Inktober2021 prompt: Compass.

Did you know the compass rose first appeared on charts and maps in the 1300’s?

I haven’t had much time for art lately, and I wanted to try out the vintage Sarasa colors — Blue Black · Blue Gray · Green Black · Brown Gray · Red Black, Sepia Black · Dark Gray · Bordeaux Purple· Cassis black · Camel Yellow — so I decided it was a good time to do some stippling.

My compass rose is a bit lop-sided but the stippling gives it some elegance anyway. And it’s easy to stop and start, so I did a little dot -dot-dot here and little dot-dot-dot there.

Celebes Crested Macaque


  • #DoodlewashOctober2021: Headwear.
  • #Inktober2021: Helmet.

Did you know that Celebes Crested Macaque is often mistaken for an ape? They are monkeys, but have such a short tail that it isn’t always easily seen. On the other hand, that little crest on their head, like a helmet or headwear is easily seen!

  • #DoodlewashOctober2021: House.
  • #Inktober2021 prompt: Roof.

Stuck at the Airport


  • #DoodlewashOctober2021: Glue.
  • #Inktober2021 prompt: Stuck.

Due to mechanical problems on one plane I ended up with a six hour wait at the airport. It seemed appropriate to draw something for this prompt while I was stuck at the airport.
