Inktober 2021 – Week 4

It’s the end of Inktober which means I have finished 31 drawings. Here is the final week and a bit.

It’s not always easy to get the drawing done. For me, that is the point. That some days the ideas come quick and easy, and others it is difficult, but that every day something is made. The end of the month feels like the end of a project. Looking back having enjoyed the process and being pleased to have created something, along with a little bit of relief that it is done and I can focus on something new.
