Goodbye September, Hello October

An artist friend is thinking about making a group for artists to post
their Inktober drawings on social media together. I really enjoyed
creating Inktober drawings last year, and think I might do more of
the same this October.  Inktober drawings are ink or marker drawings.

Tonight I'm posting one of the drawings I showed you last year.
I feel so fortunate that my father was an almost pro photographer,
who kept hundreds of 8 1/2 x 11 top quality black and white photo
prints that he printed himself. This drawing is based on one of them. 

But I know I won't have time to draw an Inktober piece every day,
though I'd certainly love to do as many as I can. They made the month
of October special for me last year.  This year with all that's going on
in the world, we need inspiration more than ever.

Have a doing what you love to do day.
