More Inktober -- the teenage muse

The Inktober drawing today is about the sudden change
in the world when a child steps onto the edge of teenage
life.  This can happen as early as 11, but by 13 it's
in full force.

As parents you are no longer right about much.  And
even when you try hard to please your preteen,
you can botch it up.  I was calling this bad hair day.
Because the model is angry about a haircut, but
I think I'll just call it.  Really?  or  Moody.

Have a loving your teenagers day.

One thing for sure I do know, an ink-October baby you are 😍
