In my last post, I mentioned a sale I was having to create illustrations of people's home. And if you pardon the expression, it took off like Hotcakes. I have done such a varied amount of homes, business and important landmarks for a whole bunch of people. Thank you for making this a success.

Here are some more:

I am now booked through January, but will gladly take commissions for February. If interested please e-mail me with a photo or street address: veronica@saltandfog.com

Inktober 2016

"Surprise", Inktober 2016 The Witch

"Surprise", Inktober 2016 The Witch

Every October artists around the world participate in inktober. Started by Jake Parker a few years back, inktober is a challenge to post one ink drawing on instagram with the inktober hashtag. 

I participated this year, and followed Jake's prompt list for each day of October. 

That first set was done in ink, mostly from a Lammy pen. I focused on the bat, skeleton and cat as I way to draw more animals as I almost always do people or architecture.

For this next set I began icorporating stamp texture with inkpads. Something that always seemed like a fun way to draw but that I had never actually experimented with.

 During a few days of traveling I went back to solely ink and pen with my set of Halloween characters.

Once home I continued my exploration with the inkpad. I am really pleased with how they had come out. Part of the joy of this inktober for me was letting myself go off model an to expriment with new mediums. I know I will be incorporating this style in to more of my art moving forward.
