Ode to Inktober

Sometimes when we switch modes, it's hard to switch
back.  I am in full painting mode now, and have had
to let my Inktober work fall to the wayside, even
though I may pick it up in another month.  Like
NovemInkber, or DecemInkber.

Here's an image from 10 years ago.  It was for one of
the biggest jobs I ever had -- drawing people live at
the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Luckily I was allowed to do two versions of the drawings.
One was an informal one I did live via Skype while
they sat for me, and the other more polished one, was
the final one from reference I took of the person in
better lighting.

Have an enjoying what you're doing day.
