Went for an autumn bike ride. Don Valley, Taylor Creek, Beaches, Tommy Thompson Park, Lakeshore.
Happy 15th Anniversary, Michelle. You enchant, fascinate, and thrill me. That rainy October evening 15 years ago has led us to so many incredible memories. I hope we have many more.
Caught the sky displaying a great colour down at Sugar Beach. 18km instead of the usual 4km. Perfect warm autumn weather for a bike ride. Rosedale Valley Rd > Don Valley > Martin Goodman Trail along the waterfront > up Bathurst St to home. My new Jamis bike is fantastic.
Alien spy drone for #inktoberday9. I had a picture in my head and tried to draw it. i wanted to draw something we wouldn’t understand by looking at it. The concept would probably work better if I had it floating in a Norman Rockwell-esque Main Street kind of scene. Kid walking his dog, store owner sweeping out front and here’s this weird thing. Hmm.
Just a quick one for Inktober day 8.
Ankylosaur-Minotaur is bleating and wishes to box you. Clean fight, no scute-knuckles. This is #Inktober number 7. Sketched a terrible little feathered dinosaur standing on its own tail and a Charizard Mega X (for my son) before doing this fine fellow.
Late night self-portrait.#Inktober 6.
Dinornis ceratus. Dinornis ceratus. My #Inktober 5 is a made-up terror bird with a couple of horns on its head. Loosely based on Dinornis maximus and an ostrich. More about Dinornis and ancient Moas of New Zealand: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinornis
With the discovery of a new dwarf planet awesomely named Goblin discovered in the Oort Cloud, I just had to sketch a quick little something. #Inktober # 3.
#Inktober day 2. A witchy sketch. Looked at a model in Sarah Simblet’s useful Anatomy for the Artist and sketched this. Mucked up the face though. Sarah Simblet: http://www.rsa.ox.ac.uk/people/sarah-simbletAnatomy for the Artist: https://www.amazon.ca/Anatomy-Artist-Sarah-Simblet/dp/078948045X
