I do. And here’s why:
Month: October 2018
“Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
Rain may fall, and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree will I lie
And let the clouds go sailing by.”
— J.R.R. Tolkien
I have barely noticed it’s the 1st today (oops), but I have remembered Inktober event and I’m hoping to summon up some art today.
I haven’t decided yet whether to go digital this year, since it could be a good opportunity to create some prints…but traditional has its perks, including simpler setup and action — compared to hooking up a tablet to the PC, using Photoshop, layers, finalizing printable quality, uploading it to Redbubble or so…will see, will see. I could probably do Hair-tober. Or…Pattern-tober.
Or, I could stop crippling the word and start inking.
As a side note, I have Tama-mail somewhere with DHL here in Kuwait and feeling quite childishly excited about it. I bought two M!X tamas for the girls and one (more) for me, so we can play together and create little digital abominations. Now only if the customs moved their bee-hinds and stopped being such snails. (The parcel has been on its way from Japan for some time now, and I’m getting impatient, yes. I can be a baby sometimes.)
