Mr Snowman is not amused.

Winter is here and a storm warning is on for tomorrow. I think this will be my Christmas card for this year. What do you think?

Inktober – Catch me if you can!

Little fox was still hungry after he caught the fish. So he started chasing after a mouse he saw passing by.

Inktober 2019 Day 30 – Catch

I´m aware that Inktober finished a while ago, and I also finally managed to finish the last drawing. All my plans of keeping up with drawing daily got interrupted by visitors and spontaneous out of town adventures. But I am not really complaining about it, as it was a lot of fun too.

I really enjoyed the prompt list this year, and I am always curious and excited to see the differences of my drawings between the last years.

Inktober 2017 got me back into drawing, and it was a real struggle in the beginning.

2018 I had a lot of fun with different characters and surrealistic scenes.

This year I wanted to learn how to stick to a character, which eventually developed into little Mr. Fox. What could his first name be? Maybe Emil?

I also started to work on illustrating a children´s book. And this was supposed to be some kind of practice for it. I feel I should also make a story out of the little fox.
Hope you had fun with him too!

He didn´t know where the fish came from. But he tried to catch it anyway.

Inktober 2019 Day 26 – Dark

When you feel like the night has eyes. Actually I love how this one turned out. I was not really excited in the beginning but decided to go with the idea anyway. Now I am happy I did.

Inktober 2019 Day 21 – Treasure

Books! A real treasure. I keep accumulating books but I cannot keep up with the reading. So my resolution is, to use the winter months to catch up with it! What about you?

Inktober 2019 Day 20 – Tread

I couldn´t really think of anything for this prompt,  so I made the little fox cross a creek on his adventure to… the unknown.

Inktober 2019 Day 11 – Snow

Snow is not here yet but winter is definitely on the way. We just will have to make the best out of it I guess.

Inktober 2019 Day 9 – Swing

Of course the only swing that came to mind was an aerial hoop ring. What better way to swing around and have fun in the air!

Inktober 2019 Day 10 – Pattern

I actually caught up with my ink drawings but my camera is on strike… so just one fashionable fox at the moment inspired by Brian´s travellers series on Equinoxio. Don´t ask me how I ended up with this fox…!?

Merci.
