Inktober Seventeen and Eighteen

I was too tired to post anything yesterday as it ended up being quite a draining day at work – on the other hand I’m now sitting at my desk with a cup of coffee while my neurons wake up properly so it’s all swings and roundabouts

Day Seventeen brought us Ornament as a prompt, and there were so many ways I could take this. In the end I opted to do an earring based on a design I saw on a customer. The longest time was spent trying to do an accurate earlobe – and in the end I used Lady M as a model while she sat on the sofa next to me.

Day Eighteen’s word was Misfit. I considered doing something with jigsaw pieces, or those shapes toys we give toddlers to improve their spatial awareness while they bash them about. In the end I went with the black sheep in the herd that stands out as looking so different, but really isn’t at heart any different from anyone else. A metaphor for family life? Yeah, a bit ham-handed, I’ll give you that, but it’s a simple visual that appeals.
