This year I participated in Inktober, and made one illustration out of ink every day for the month of October. It had been a while since I’d spent much time drawing, and I enjoyed it so much that I’m going to be sure to keep the momentum going beyond this month.

Day 2: Delving into portraiture.
Day 3: I took a picture of an old garage door in Malta because of its color palette, but ended up drawing it in black and white..
