Inktober – Day 28 – Float

Today’s Inktober 2020 prompt word is FLOAT. I enjoyed doing this one. It was pretty quick too. Managed to do the whole thing last night. A whole day ahead! Float. What to do. I went straight for the theme that has permeated through other drawings I have submitted for this year’s Inktober, that of Space. The Great Void. The Final Frontier. I even managed a nod to Major Tom. For those who have missed out on the joy that is Major Tom, he is a fictional character mentioned in no less than 5 songs by the late, great David Bowie. Here’s a link to the most famous, Space Oddity (1972), for your edification. Enjoy.

Maybe you could look at the drawing I did whilst listening to the song? Could be fun.

And I’m floating in a most peculiar way…

Here’s a close up of ‘Major Tom.’

Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do…

I was going to post a picture of the ink only version of this drawing. It was pretty cool. However, due to a Layering error, also known as User Error, I lost that particular option. I’d say that I won’t be making that mistake again, but I’ve done it twice now!

The colour was too tempting. Mostly VERY dark blue and white. Great fun.

Parting question: Can anyone name the other 4 David Bowie songs where Major Tom is mentioned? No prizes. Just smug satisfaction for those who know.

As has become the norm, I’ve included a Link to the instagram #Inktober2020float page with nearly 2,500 submissions by people around the world who are also taking part in Inktober. Definitely less cats today. Though it is early.

Also included is a link to my Instagram page where you can see all my submissions so far.

  1. Once again we have the inkiness of space together with the twinkling of stars. As Major Tom said, “Here am I floating ’round my tinkan, far above the moon.” And did you know there’s a constellation called the Lynx (phonetically – links).
