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 #24 – Extinct

There was only one memory that came to mind when I saw the word extinct. I was fortunate enough to see Jurassic Park in theaters when it first came out. I went with my mom, dad and brother. I was only about five years old but I remember how amazing it was to see onContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #24 – Extinct”

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 #25 – Splat

I had a hard time thinking of something to do for this prompt but I have already skipped a couple prompts for lack of inspiration and I don’t want to skip too many. So, with that being said, this was the best I could come up with for the word splat! My parents property hadContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #25 – Splat”

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 #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 #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 #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”
