Inktober – Days 15 & 16 – Outpost & Rocket

I can only apologise as I have been somewhat remiss. I didn’t post anything for Inktober yesterday, so am having to do a double today. Very sorry. I did manage to post on Instagram and therefore Facecloth too. My excuse is a fair one I think. Yesterday was the father-in-law’s 80th birthday.

Now don’t be getting any ideas about the pater-in-law. He’s far from your average 80 year old. He goes rowing at least twice a week, hiking, gardening and is sometimes quite difficult to keep up with.

Anyway, the excitement of birthday celebrations and being taken out to dinner meant that I had little time for posting.

Based on the well known fact that there is always a silver lining, this means that today you get 2 ink drawings. Lucky you. The first is based on the prompt word OUTPOST and is from Inktober day 15.

OUTPOST – Day 15

I love this drawing. It may be my favourite because it combines two of my favourite things. Mountains and snow. I could definitely live in that outpost. Well, I could if it weren’t for the cat. Great to draw, but not so great in real life as I am allergic to the cute little feline critters.

The prompt word for -day 16 of Inktober is ROCKET. I’ve already drawn a rocket (see day 9), so you can imagine where I started. He’s my offering…

ROCKET

I’m convinced that alien life will be not just friendly, but usefully so.

Tomorrow’s prompt word is STORM. Hmmmm…

  1. From a personal view, being married to the 80-year-old father-in-law, I can only say what an inkredible person Mr P is. He couldn’t post yesterday because he and Mrs P turned up before breakfast with a super video of over 60 individual video clips of people wishing F-in-law Happy Birthday, organised a lunchtime Zoom meeting with family in Japan and then chauffeured and joined us for dinner at the French Horn in the evening (never mind having to hold down the day job). We are lucky to have him – he is inkomparable.
