Every year it seems I forget about Inktober until about a week too late. But this year I remembered and I’m excited to do 29 more drawings! I like the restriction of it. Certainly it’s not forbidden to add color, but I’m taking it as a black and white challenge. Above is my drawing from Day one, and below is Day two. They’ll also be on my instagram (@edaggarart).

There was a small woods across the street from the farm. Before the people bought the land and built the large farmhouse and attendant stables and fenced-in pastures, it had been a winter wheat field. If you walked across or around to the back of that field, you’d come upon a picturesque little meadow, hemmed in by trees across which was hidden a lovely woods with a little ribbon of stream running through. It was pretty at all times of year, but in Winter it truly felt like a magical realm, far away from the world.

Your art is very beautiful. This particular post contains what reminds me of the art I see in the children’s book, “The Giving Tree” it is a family favorite. We actually own three copies. The simplicity yet the tones you use is insightful in such a way, my children were very interested (ages 8 and 5). My 8 year old has autism and loves art and puzzles. It
Think what you provided in this post, in some way bridged a gap between the two for her. I’m following you do can see what else you have to offer!

Love the words and artwork. They compliment each other well.
Thx so much! I’m working on day seven’s drawing right now so check back later today 🙂
I will, look forward to it now.
I am following you on Instagram your art is great.
Thanks so much! It means a lot when my work resonates with people.
I enjoy drawing, I don’t profess to be brilliant at it, but it is therapeutic to me.
I loved the use of negative space. Is that done using ink wash or filled with fineliners?
Thank you! For these two, it’s all with variable width micron pens, which took forever! I’m starting to incorporate some india ink in the more recent ones, though. (And grey art markers.) I dig the linework in your entries!
Thanks a lot. I still have to check out the remaining entries from you side. They are available on the blog, right?
Sounds lovely and magical, like the woods at the end of the lowest field of my grandfather’s farm.
Thank you, yes, it was one of my favorite spots.
