Happy Valentine’s day!
If you’re like me, a.k.a. a chronic loner, and you’re spending it alone with your cat (speaking of which, I need 5 more), I hope you have a good day. Maybe go get some of that candy/chocolate, or maybe don’t.
For those of you spending it with someone, enjoy your time with them and turn off your phone.

Not the movie starring Marilyn Monroe. I recently went to Niagara Falls with my bestie, and had a grand old time. We won some cash at the casino, walked so much our legs still ache, bought delicious fudge, and ended the day at the Coca-Cola store with ice cream floats. Sadly the floats were in plastic cups, not these magnificent glasses.
Also I’m sorry for the terrible photo quality here, I’m not sure what’s going on with my camera these days, or perhaps I’ve just forgotten how to get the best out of it.
See below for a couple of photos from my adventure.

A small oasis we found
A single tube of red lipstick, and beside it the sketch I was working from. It’s surprising how my lines are straighter here than when I use a ruler.
Also for Inktober I’ve been working in 2 separate sketchbooks, one is an unlined Moleskine which is strictly for planning and sketches, because it can’t handle anything other than ballpoint pen and pencils, the other is a $10 sketchbook from Michael’s which is holding up surprisingly well.

I’ve always loved and wanted one of those poison apple mugs from Disneyland. One day, I will get one. For now, here’s a poisonous candy apple.

I’ve been having the worst artists’ block lately. And it doesn’t seem to want to go anytime soon. However, I did manage to pump out this one. Baby steps, baby steps.
What do you do when you’re grappling with artists’ block?

I missed days 11 and 12, because my shoulder was acting up and trying to kill me. Back at it though.
