Inktober 2021 #12 – Stuck

Just a short but sweet entry today. I’ve shared in previous posts how my dad and I were “pals” when I was young. I stuck to his side like a bad rash! Everything he did, I wanted to do too! This prompt made me think of a picture of us together that my mom took.Continue reading “Inktober 2021 #12 – Stuck”

Inktober 2021 #11 – Sour

The eleventh prompt for Inktober is “Sour” and is probably going to be my personal favorite. Unfortunately for my dad, he was the one left sour! My mom, dad and I had just sat down to dinner with our own generous helpings of hot spaghetti! We were hungry and just about ready to take ourContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #11 – Sour”

Inktober 2021 #10 – Pick

I had no idea what I was going to do for pick. This might be a bit of a stretch but just roll with it. I have a particular memory of going to the auction with my dad so I’m squeezing it in here because he let me pick whatever I wanted and we wouldContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #10 – Pick”

Inktober 2021 #9 – Pressure

My dad had always taught me to be independent and learn how to do things for myself. He taught me all the basics of vehicle care and maintenance, tire pressure, changing a flat, oil changes, checking fluids, so on and so forth. He said, “Sometimes you might run in to trouble and there won’t beContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #9 – Pressure”

Inktober 2021 #8 – Watch

If you have seen my previous sketches for Inktober this year, you’ll know that my dad was a cowboy. His favorite movies were westerns and he watched them often. It was one of my favorite things to do with my dad when I was little. No one else I knew watched westerns so I thoughtContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #8 – Watch”

Inktober 2021 #7 – Fan

It was no surprise that I was my dad’s biggest fan and he was mine. I wanted to do everything he did. We were “pals” and we had called each other that since before I can remember. We had a secret handshake and everything. I felt cool when I was with my dad. Maybe itContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #7 – Fan”

Inktober 2021 #5 – Raven

My dad loved birds. He studied them often and knew every bird that crossed his path. If he saw one he didn’t know, he would look it up in the bird book until he figured it out. He was always surrounded by birds. We had quail, pigeons, chickens. We even had a peacock for aContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #5 – Raven”

Inktober 2021 #4 – Knot

The fourth prompt for Inktober is knot, which really isn’t a lot to work with when thinking of my favorite memories with my dad. I decided to do a drawing of the survival bracelets that we made one of the times my son and I were visiting my parents over the summer. It seemed likeContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #4 – Knot”

Inktober 2021 #3 – Vessel

Vessel was an easy prompt that brought up a lot of memories with my dad. He had his own vessel called The Phish Phinder. We would go out on Lake Erie all the time and go fishing. We would have the usual family competition of who could catch the most fish. It was usually myContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #3 – Vessel”

Inktober 2021 #2 – Suit

The prompt for day two is “Suit”. When I think of suit and my dad together, the first thing that comes to mind is my aunt’s wedding. I suppose it’s not necessarily the event that I remember but more so the picture we have from it. I do remember a few things from that dayContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #2 – Suit”
