Frail Bird for Inktober


PM-701 Permanent Marker on Hahnemühle Nostalgie Postcard Prompts: Inktober – Frail Doodlewash – Bird I think swans look fragile with their long slender necks.

Mindless Snacks for Inktober


Artwork – Zebra Zensations Brush Pen on Hahnemuhle Nostalgie Postcards Pistachios are one of my favorite snacks, but I seldom allow myself to have them.

Later, my stomach tells me just exactlyContinue reading “Mindless Snacks for Inktober”
