“Aura and Shadow” “Petal and Wood” “Moth and Hand” “Water and Breath” “Mind and Fog” Still in pencil, I’m not sure I will stick with this design.   This batch I worked with a lot of old and new life study sketches that I blended with the project ideas.  The latest drawing and several after are done in graphite for time and sanity.

from Instagram: http://ift.tt/1Onz8lF “Fire And Bone” Another reversed design, it helps me when my days are busy. from Instagram: https://instagram.com/p/1Z2mgcuKa_/ “Wind and Tethered” I had this tethered bird motif that I constantly worked with in undergrad, based on a reoccurring dream I had when I was younger.

Inktober
