Today is not only the last day of #Inktober but it’s also #Halloween as well. I decided to do an extra drawing that’s not based on the official Inktober prompt list but, instead, it would be something I came up especially for Halloween. So I drew a #raven saying #Nevermore. (Yes, I based it on the classic #poem by #EdgarAllanPoe.) This drawing marks the official end of my participation in #Inktober2018.

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #slice. Like yesterday the only thing I could think of was a brand of soft drink. So I drew a can of Slice carbonated #softdrink. I occasionally drink Slice if I’m at a friend’s house or an event at my church. (Usually I drink the lemon lime flavor because it tastes like Sprite.) #drawing #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #jolt. The only thing I could think of was Jolt #Cola, which billed itself as “All the Sugar and Twice the Caffeine.” I used to drink it on occasion and it was normally whenever I was very tired and I needed to stay awake (such as when I’m working at a job and I couldn’t get off for another few hours). So I drew a can of #JoltCola. #drawing #softdrink #Inktober2018

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 #gift. I drew something a bit more serious for this prompt. Ever since my marriage abruptly collapsed in late 2011 I had to deal with financial struggle while I had a series of jobs that were either short-lived, poorly paid, or both. I read Melody Beattie’s book The Language of Letting Go where she had one suggestion of writing your deepest wish on a piece of paper or just saying it out loud. The idea is to put your message out in the universe. She said that doing this can get results. When I was doing rough drawings in pencil a few weeks ago, I decided to write down my biggest wish in the hopes that it will come true. I’m currently doing freelance work for a therapist on an upcoming webinar series that will probably end next month and I’m currently helping someone else with her eBay sales but the latter is through the Greenbelt Timebank so I’m only going to get time banking hours, not paid hours. (You can learn more about timebanking in general at https://timebanks.org/what-is-timebanking/.) For me having my wish come true would be a gift for me. #drawing #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #thunder. I have to admit that this prompt was a bit of a challenge mainly because thunder is a noise that’s not visible. But then I thought about an ancient #god of thunder and I did a Google search. One of the suggestions was #Thor, the ancient #Norse thunder god. In addition some of the searches brought up the #Marvel Comics version of Thor. I remember reading that #comicbook when I was a kid and there have been a few movies released in recent years featuring him. (Although I must confess that I have never seen any of them.) I based this #drawing on a comic book cover from the late 1970s since this Thor is close to my memory of the Thor from my childhood. #MarvelComics #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #stretch. The only thing I could think of was #drawing #StretchArmstrong, which was a rubber #toy #actionfigure that kids could stretch as far as they possibly could without ripping the toy in half. I never had a Stretch Armstrong toy myself but I saw kids in my neighborhood playing with this, especially the boys. #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #prickly. I came up with an idea of doing a #drawing based on a photograph I took of my late pet #hedgehog Spike sniffing a #rose that had thorns. I had purchased the rose from Wegmans around Easter and I decided to try putting it in Spike’s outdoor playpen to see how he would react to it. He initially moved the rose with his head a few times but then I managed to shoot a photo of Spike sniffing that #rose. (He only sniffed that rose for a few seconds before he decided to move on to sniffing the dirt, the fallen leaves, and the grass that was in the process of growing from the ground.) #Inktober2018

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #chop. It was yet another prompt word that I struggled with until I remembered a character from my childhood. #LambChop was a #puppet that was operated and voiced by #ShariLewis. #Lamb Chop had a childlike voice and she was pretty cute. I used to see her and Shari Lewis guest star on various TV shows. Shari Lewis died in 1998 but I learned through the Wikipedia that Shari’s daughter, Mallory Lewis, now operates and provides the voice for the puppet. She has the performing rights to Lamb Chop while DreamWorks have the main legal rights now. #Inktober2018 #drawing

Today’s prompt word for #Inktober is #muddy. It was yet another prompt word that I struggled with until I hit upon the idea of drawing #MuddyWaters. #Inktober2018 #drawing #blues #guitar #singer
