it’s inktober!

Inktober Day Three: Poison.  It’s up to you whether you think that some of the refreshments on offer are slightly toxic. Or maybe “Poison” is the name of the Horrible Creature on the left.

Inktober began a couple of days ago, and once again I am participating.  For those who may be unfamiliar, Inktober is a shared art project where artists of all kinds and at all skill levels commit to making a finished drawing in ink every day during the month of October and share their drawings on social media.  Some people do random drawings, others follow a theme (someone I know is drawing villains from Marvel’s X-Men universe), while others are using one of several prompt lists that are circulating around the Internet.

I am using the quasi-official prompt list, since I feel sort of vaguely guilty about how the ongoing Drawing of the Day project means I am (in theory) doing the same basic task every day anyway.  Using the prompts, rather than doing my usual semi- automatic drawing, and committing to finishing and posting every day make me feel like I am giving sufficient extra attention to the project.  Being me, I have hidden the prompt list somewhere in the studio and am trying very hard not to think more than one day ahead– I snatch a glimpse every day after I’ve posted that day’s drawing.

Find my daily posts on the Official Pam Bliss Facebook Page, which you can find at  Remember that this is a public page and you don’t have to be a member of Facebook to visit.  (If you are a Facebook person, you are cordially invited to like and follow.)  I’ll be posting some of my favorites here as well.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t want to see a prompt until I’m ready to create from it! Having too much time to think about it beforehand makes it less fresh and fun. It starts to feel like a chore.
