Jabberwocky #INKTOBER #INKTOBER2018

Another illustration I created for Inktober 2018.  I looked at the original art by Tenniel from his famous illustration of Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky.  I always thought the creature was terrifying.  I made the sketch during a meeting and inked it at home.

Strange Frog Like Monster

This is one of the illustrations I made this summer.  It is a drawing of a strange frog like monster.

October is just around the corner.  I am going to post a bunch of sketches I made and will be making for Inktober.   An illustrator named Jake Parker started the challenge back in 2009 and it has taken off since then.   I have been taking on the challenge the last several years, although I don’t follow the drawing prompts usually or the sketch a day guidelines.  There were not any drawing prompts until a few years ago, anyway.  I use the Inktober drawing challenge as a motivation to create and post some autumn, spooky and horror themed drawings.  I’ll be posting them starting next week.
