INKTOBER 2017- Day 9..cross hatching

My Inktober is jinxed.... Yesterday my dog, Simba chewed up my sketch book... So most of my earlier Inktober drawings became half eaten rags.... I was too pissed off to do any work yesterday.... Today I painstakingly taped the sketchbook back together.... then completed yesterday's pending drawing... Tried photographing it...
Artistically putting my ink bottle and pens on the sketch.
Before I knew it, Simba sa'ab walks by again, swishing his tail... And plop goes the ink bottle.
I didn't realise that he had chewed up the ink bottle too, and thus making the lid loose! And my sketch becomes a blob of black ink!!!
So lesson learnt... Keep away from inks and just use ballpoints and markers.
Ink bottles are not meant for careless people like me.... And who have a dog with an artistic temperament.

So from this...

It goes to this.... in matters of seconds.

    Oh so sad. But you have to give it to Simba. He tried his best to add his mark and steared you away from ink bottles. Hugs to him and a tight one to you.

    1. thank you sooooo much. A hug back at you!
      But I wasnt sooo upset because I had already taken the photograph... if I hadn't then it would have been tragic... all my mehnat gone to waste!

  2. Very informative, keep posting such good articles, it really helps to know about things.
