Art Blog: Inktober

Some of you may have heard of Inktober. Starting on the 1st of October and running through until the 31st, every day a challenger draws an ink drawing. It was designed as a fun way to practice and has evolved into a beloved annual event to artists everywhere. In years previous, I have participated in it with my goal for personal experimentation. This year, however, I’ve decided to do something a bit more fun!

My Inktober 2018 goal was to draw creatures and monsters. Some of these are old folklore tales with a focus on local color native to my beloved New Orleans and surrounding areas, some of them are purely based on my own creative monster making and others are things that I think are plausible things that exist.

Now, I’ve waited until a week in to start posting them here. You can go sneak peaks at all of them on my Instagram (@Siscree) or my twitter (@Liabra).

Inktober Day One

The Occhi Nell’Angolo is in part based off of an old story my grandma told me and part based in things I have experienced within the paranormal community. While it looks quite scary, think of these things more as accumulated darkness and stagnant energy. They certainly do not creepy crawl down and attack anyone, but they do have a strange penchant for making a place feel watched and paranoid.
