The... Somewhat Delayed Inktober Wrap-up
So, an awful lot of things happened between the last blog post and this one and most of them were, indeed, awful. I apologize in advance for the sad news but having hadn't posted in ages, I feel like an explanation is owed.
The month began with the sudden passing of my uncle, one of the funniest people I ever knew and the husband of my Godmother, who passed away last year. This has, all told, been a hell of a couple of years for me. Much of October was spent dealing with the fallout from this. And just as my family and I were starting to get a handle on things, the month ended with The Nameless Storm. At least ten trees were down in our neighborhood and we lost power for a week (we have a generator thank goodness, but still). Fun times.
So October, the month, was a seemingly endless nightmare.
INK-tober, however, was fantastic. I loved seeing everyone's art; it really did cheer me up during a terrible time. I also drew a picture for every single day in October and honestly, I have no idea how I even did it. To tell the truth, I'm a little soured on daily art challenges even though this was mostly stressful because of extenuating circumstances. Anyway, here they all are.
