I’ve been drawing things for Inktober on and off this month. I also started with the Society of Visual Storytelling online course. Which I found via the Inktober website. It’s an excellent way to learn about the illustration industry and improve skills. The tutors are top notch!

So practising drawing straight lines I made a piece to use for Day 26 prompt - Stretch. Basically a brush that technically is a sponge on a stick. Simples. A high tech fountain pen that guzzles a lot of ink!
