Sketchbook

Inktober 2017 #1 

I’ve been obsessed with “IT” since the new movie came out. The original was always one of my favorites so I was ecstatic when I heard they were doing a remake. It was fantastic! I bought the book and started reading it yesterday. Wow…just wow. It just keeps getting creepier! 

“You’ll float too.”

I’m excited to finally begin this year’s “Inktober” challenge of drawing a sketch-a-day in ink. For my first sketch, I decided to do a clown inspired by “IT”.

It also has another meaning that ties in personally. “We all have our demons” is written on the mask. It’s true. We all have it burrowing inside us. The what-if’s and worries. The do’s and dont’s. The heartaches and hauntings of our past. Sometimes it takes all our energy to keep the demons at bay. Other times, it is still not enough and they break free. We can no longer put that fake smile on and the monster comes creeping out, ready to attack. It seems like a horror novel but it is all too real. 

Keep yourself balanced and don’t let your fear feed the demons for they will only grow stronger.

Until next time,

“I’m every nightmare you’ve ever had. I am your worst dream come true! I am everything you ever were afraid of!”
