Inktober 2021 #28 – Crispy

I drew a perch for this prompt because one of the things I’m going to miss is my dad’s fish fry! You may have read in a previous Inktober post that my family and I would often take my dad’s boat out on Lake Erie. We would spend all day in the sun, fishing forContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #28 – Crispy”

Inktober 2021 #27 – Spark

My dad was a metal worker by trade. He was a welder at Jeep for over 40 years. He worked on various parts of the jeeps over the years. We are a huge jeep family, always have been. I always thought it was cool to see them on the road or even driving our ownContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #27 – Spark”

Inktober 2021 #26 – Connect

I’ve been wanting to do a sketch related to my dad and my grandmother(his mother) for a while. Their relationship always stood out to me. My grandmother was around a lot. She would always come with us on vacations and trips and she would come camping with us at the fair when I would showContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #26 – Connect”

Inktober 2021 #19 – Loop

Some may not believe it but there was one point in my life when I had tons of bows and hair accessories. Those were dark times. 😆 My family and I were sitting in the living room watching TV. I asked my dad if I could do his hair and he agreed. I didn’t haveContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #19 – Loop”

Inktober 2021 #22 – Open

I instantly knew what I was going to do for the prompt Open. I have a picture on my wall in my studio of my dad and I participating in my 4-H groups Open Fun Show. My 4-H group put on an Open Fun Show every year. It was called an Open Show because anyoneContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #22 – Open”

Inktober 2021 #18 – Moon

It was a dark and stormy Halloween night. The moon was full and the ghouls howled down the streets. Just kidding. It was dark but it wasn’t storming. It was just really, really cold though. And the ghouls howling was more like the wind blasting past you and making your eyes water. I don’t evenContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #18 – Moon”

Inktober 2021 #17 – Collide

Now this is an interesting story. It’s one that I will never forget. I was pretty young. My dad and I went trail riding together. Usually, it was a group of us going or at a minimum it would be me, my mom and my dad. But for some reason this day, it was justContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #17 – Collide”

Inktober 2021 #16 – Compass

I had a lot of thoughts pop in my head when I saw the word compass. The first thing I thought of was the compass on my dad’s boat. We took the boat out on Lake Erie often. It was one of my favorite things to do with my family. We would go fishing andContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #16 – Compass”

Inktober 2021 #15 – Helmet

My dad was always a stickler about safety. …Always wear your seatbelt, always be cautious around power tools, never look at the light from the welder and always wear your helmet! Thanks to my parents, I was lucky enough to have a horse as a kid and compete in horse shows for 4-H and PonyContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #15 – Helmet”

Inktober 2021 #14 – Tick

Ticks are pretty gross. I’ve become very familiar with ticks. My entire life I have been outdoors, in the woods, in the fields, in the flower beds. When I was younger, my dad and I would walk through the fields and pastures a lot together which is when he taught me about ticks. I rememberContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #14 – Tick”
