Inktober 2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #drooling. When I was a teenager my family had a #dog who was part-Labrador Retriever and part-Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Napoleon. Like all dogs Napoleon was into begging for people food while leaving his own dog food uneaten. (He would eventually get around to eating his own food but he preferred what people were eating.) He would stoop to begging where he would cast the saddest eyes he could muster. If he didn’t get what he wanted, the next step was to stick his tongue out, start panting, and begin drooling. The longer he drooled, the more foamy his mouth got and a small puddle would start to form around him. His mouth would get so foamy that it looked like he had rabies. (He always got his rabies shot every year.) That tactic was especially effective when my parents had guests over and his drooling would gross out the guests so much that they gave in and gave him what they were eating. #Inktober2018 #drawing

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #double. This was yet another prompt that I had a hard time dealing with. The only thing I could think of was those ads for #Doublemint #gum featuring identical #twins. Through the Wikipedia I learned that 21-year-old Jayne and Joan Boyd were the first set of twins who appeared in Doublemint’s television ads way back in 1959. (They were born Jayne and Joan Knoerzer but used their mother’s maiden name professionally.) So I drew those twins. By the way, they were spokespersons for Doublemint until 1963 when Joan became pregnant. Over the years other twins have shown up in TV ads representing Doublemint gum. #drawing #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #whale. I did a few #drawings of #orcas #killerwhales that were based on my photos from my last trip to #SeaWorld in #Orlando back in 2010. #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #flowing. I’ll admit that I struggled a bit with that prompt until I remembered the Scottish princess #Merida and her long, flowing, curly red hair from the #Disney #Pixar movie #Brave. I have a Merida doll that I purchased from the Disney Store a few years ago so I decided to use it as a model. I had laid the doll down flat on her back while I was gathering my pencil, eraser, and sketchbook and I noticed that the way that her hair was spread out looked pretty cool. So I shot a picture of the doll with my smartphone and I did my #drawing based on that photograph. #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #exhausted. I’ll admit that I struggled a bit with that prompt until I decided to draw a scene from the #Disney #animation classic #SleepingBeauty. There are times when I get so tired that I could easily fall into a deep sleep like that. #Inktober2018 #drawing

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #expensive. I initially struggled with that word until I had to go to a nearby #gasstation so I could fill my #car up with more #gas. I experienced sticker shock at how expensive gas has gotten per gallon and, in the process, I got my inspiration for how I was going to deal with today’s prompt word. #petrol #drawing #servicestation #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #scorched. The only thing I could think of #drawing was a fire-breathing #dragon setting a #house on #fire, thus #scorching it. #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #drain. The only thing I could think of was this classic #1980s era #arcade #game called #Bubbles, where you had to guide a #bubble around a sink while cleaning up dirty spots and ants. The more dirty spots and ants it picked up, the larger your bubble will grow and it will eventually get a face as well. Meanwhile you had to make sure that your bubble dodges cockroaches, scrubbing brushes, and a razor blade because if you touch any of them, your bubble would burst and you would lose a life. Once your bubble reaches a certain size, you can guide it towards the drain where you would go down the drain and onto the next level. It’s definitely one of the wackier games I’ve played. I vaguely remember playing this game back in the arcades but I’m not 100% sure. (I’ve played so many arcade #videogames back in the 1980s that it can be a bit challenging trying to remember them all.) I currently have this game on the Midway Arcade Treasures compilation disc for the Playstation 2 and it’s definitely a hoot playing it. #Inktober2018 #drawing

Here’s my first #ink #drawing for #Inktober. The word from the official prompt list is #poisonous. I came up with the idea of #SnowWhite getting ready to unwittingly bite into the poisonous apple that will put her in such a deep sleep that only a kiss from a true love can reverse the spell. #Disney #DisneyPrincess #fairytale #BrothersGrimm #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #chicken. I know someone who keeps chickens in her backyard at her home in Takoma Park, Maryland. I shot some pictures of her chickens when I went to a party at her place back in August. My #drawing is based on one of my photos. #Inktober2018
