TheArtyONE! does #Inktober 2016

 Hola Hello!

I hope you're all well.

It's that time of year again! Yes - Inktober is back!

Once again I'll be taking part in Inktober and you will see an inked drawing everyday from October 1st until October 31st. 

I'm sure our new kittens, Tarth and Pod, will
provide much inspiration for Inktober.

2016 - the year of some great loses

 Hola hello!

So it's been a busy year for me (a mixture of work and personal stuff) but I won't go into the details of that here. Just a quick update for you so you know I'm still alive.

This is my #GeneWilder #WillyWonka tribute. 

I've missed so many great celebrity deaths this year (and boy has 2016 been the year for it) and have been too busy to sketch out a tribute to my faves - but today I managed it.

As a pre-emptive - yesterday I told Mark Hamill on Facebook not to die and so far so good. (He has to stick around for Star Wars Ep9)

Panda Love

 Hola Hello!

A quick little update on a little watercolour sketch I did yesterday based on the two Red Pandas at the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park. They recently got a second Red Panda and it seems romance is blooming already.

D'awww...
The original painting has already found a new home but I am thinking of making some limited edition prints of this picture (minus the watermark of course). Drop me a line if you're interested.

Apologies in advance.

 Sorry for the slow replies. Normal service will resume soon. 


My landlords announced the sale of my home just before Christmas and with 3 weeks away I've come back to crazy house hunting as I don't have long until the new owners move in.
