In Inktober done properly you have topics. That doesn't interest
me though I admire the people that follow that plan.  What
does interest me is the focus on line drawings in ink -- one
of my passions.  I did this drawing this morning, as one of
my journal drawings.  The subject is a man in a trench coat
I found under that heading on Google.

He has a very serious look, and I love how drawing a 
portrait brings the person you're drawing alive. A 
great pleasure. I hope the subject is having a good life.

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

Sometimes you wish you could meet people who you draw from random
photos. They feel so present.

Love your work.
