Today’s Inktober prompt word is SLEEP and, since Mrs P didn’t like my choice of subject matter yesterday (CORAL), I let her choose the subject. It wasn’t too hard to guess what she would choose since we have been feeding a hedgehog in our garden for some months now whilst he/she (I don’t think they do the non-gender specific thing) gets ready to hibernate.
I thought that just a sleeping hedgehog, whilst cute, might be a bit dull. So, I decided to add a little alarm clock. I’m pretty convinced that they must have something to wake them up in time for spring. It can’t be just instinct and hunger can it? Certainly not in my imagination.
I’m quite pleased with this one. the hedgehog is based loosely on a photo I found on the Interweb. The clock is from my imagination, the leaves too, since you ask.
Here’s a bit of detail for you…
I’ve included a [link] to the instagram #Inktober2020sleep page with thousands more submissions by people around the world who are also taking part in Inktober. Some are professionals. Some should be professionals. Many make my efforts look pretty average. Do take a look. they are great fun. (There’s always a lot of cats for some reason.)
Also included is a link to my Instagram page where you can see all my 21 submissions so far.
