Inktober Day 20 // My favorite human, @shmoetakesphotos, as Papa Emeritus III from @thebandghost 💀🖤
Would you (or your pet/child/friend) like to be spookified for my Inktober project? There are still spaces left! Each portrait requires a $3 donation on Ko-fi (see my main Inktober post or DM me for more details)! 🔮🦇🍂👻
I fell in love with this tiny 5 x 6cm painting by @louise_paramor back in 1986? and she kindly said I could have it! We were both fresh expats from Perth when we met in Smith St as strangers and tho we lost touch many years ago I still treasure this little piece of art. It has moved house many times and now has a beautiful jarrah frame. Check out what Louise is doing now!

#inktober2018 • Day 19 - "scorched" •
When fire leaves the earth scorched, it seems horrible at first. But out of the ashes, new plants grow. Sometimes a fire is needed to give new things a chance to rise. My darkest times left my soul scorched, desolate like the earth after a fire. Yet they laid the ground for everything I now hold dear to arise and grow. •
I'm talking about my history with hospitals. I've been there a lot in my teenage years, and I had many surgeries. Just yesterday I had a doctors appointment. And it became very apparent just how much my hospital-experiences still affect me. I had so many (ridiculous) thoughts before the appointment, preparing answers to questions I didn't even get asked.
I thought the effects were wearing off, but yesterday showed me that there's still a lot of hospital-conditioning in me. I hope in becoming aware of it time and time again, I can learn to counteract, let them wear off or - if that's not possible - learn to be at peace with the thoughts and feelings when they arise. •
0.03 fineliner, 45 minutes (I didn't expect this drawing to be done so quickly. So I spent another 3 hours or so on a different drawing ☺️)
P.S. You get bonus points if you can spot my signature 😉
While in the studio today I could not help but be reminded of the suffragettes while painting these ladies. Through out history people have fought hard for the rights we have today.
