I'm including my Scribble Picnic Chicken in this post introducing my Inktober for 2018. (Picnicker's - if you want to scroll to the end, feel free.)
I was reading a post on a blog recently where the author had done a review of a product called Zen Pink Pig Sketchbooks. The review was good and those pigs on the inside tissue liner were a big selling point for me. Don't they look like they're flying? So I partook of some retail therapy and ordered myself this little sketchbook with a royal blue handmade paper-covered cover from Amazon and it came just in time for me to use for Inktober as there are more than enough sheets in there for the entire month.
I'm not committing to following the prompts for Inktober. It's nice to have them, but I'm choosing to be flexible about it. If an idea comes easy enough for the prompt I'll use it, otherwise I'm going to rely on whatever comes easily to me.
On Day 1 I made reference to some of the names that are currently flying around about October. The tv weatherman that we watch has also given it the moniker of Warmtober because we're experiencing unusually warm temps.
Day 2 - Tranquil
We probably did our last fishing from the dock last Saturday and the water there was the inspiration for this. Even though there are people around us, there is a tranquility in standing with the fishing rod in your hand, the light wind blowing in your face, and watching the bobber pitch and bob with the waves. It's almost mesmerizing to see the fractals the water makes. I'll miss it until next summer.
Day 3 - Roasted.
So this is where I married the challenges of Scribble Picnic Chicken and Inktober Roasted. I suppose I could have drawn a chicken on a spit, but this chicken was so pretty that I didn't want to kill her. Er, him. Chicken to Rooster to Roasted - reminds me of one of those word games we used to play. Or you could say that I'm too Chicken to Roast this Rooster.
Time to head over to the picnic and check out all the other chicks, er CHICKENS. Won't you join my by clicking here. The next theme is BOTTLE and is due 10/17. We'd love to have you play along.
