#inktober2018

1 Nov
It was fun to do inktober this year in between a conference, preparing for a full week of meetings, during that week and after. I didn’t spend a lot of time on each drawing and wasn’t too ambitious with selection of subjects. But then, the prompt list was a challenge most days, as it shows in many cases. I’ve done several of the drawings in a bar, a restaurant, a train, a hotel room, a plane.

Since I was on the move most of the month, I carried only the essential: I’ve used a small sketchbook again (10×15 cm) and a selection of Uniball pin pen 0.05, Pentel black brushpen, Muji black brushpen, watercolour once and some calligraphy inks once (at home).
