Happy Inktober October

My friend Daniel Anaka has started an Instagram group for people who are
going to do Inktober (ink drawings every day in October). I would love to
join the group, but I know that I won’t do an ink drawing every single day
this month. If I do it will be a miracle.

I did have fun today working on this self portrait of me wearing my friend
Georgia Fullerton’s Full Fine Art T-shirt. It isn’t a perfect portrait by any
means, but it was a treat to work on.

I’m inspired by my artist friends who do so many things to promote their
work, and by artists in general -- who are so much fun to be around, and so
inspiring to their artist friends. 

Georgia Fullerton is such an active voice in the arts community, and so is
 Daniel Anaka. He has so many ideas, and has curated wonderful shows
that I’ve participated in.  So that’s it for today -- a drawing and welcome
October. I’m looking forward to this month in our family. It’s full of birthdays, 
and will be full of art. (Isn't the word full perfect on this T-shirt.  That's what
we want -- a full life.  I wish you one.

Stay safe, and stay healthy, and if you’re an artist who enjoys doing ink
drawings join Daniel and check out his Instagram group take care.
