… and just today I heard about this #inktober phenomenon, which is a thing made for me if ever there was one. I mean, I don’t even like making prepatory lines with pencil, because of the (a) delay and (b) nerve curdling scratching noise (in fact, I dislike all kinds of dry drawing). My instinct is always to be putting wet brush to surface.

And now that I’m drawing over my lunch hour again … well, let’s just say I may be rampant with the ‘inktober’ hashtag.

come by my table on saturday afternoon

These are some of the fifty-five library card art pieces I’ll have for sale at my table this Saturday afternoon at the Made in Canada Etsy + Fat Goose Craft Fair (Grant Hall, Queen’s, 10-4). Original artworks on vintage library cards, $10 each or 3 for $20, packaged for gift giving (they’re great to tuck into birthday cards), these work both as bookmarks or miniature paintings to frame in their own right.

I’ll also have cigar-tin stories, copies of my books, and a great selection of various mixed-media artworks, all of it priced at $20 and $30. Get out of the house, go for a walk, enjoy the day and come home with an original work of art –– all for the price of a (cheap) pair of pants. My table is cash-only but at least the bills are small.
