Inktober #30 & 31

#inktober2018 - #30&31 / 6X6 each
with Sharpie pen and India ink wash

Inktober was a great challenge that emphasized
discipline and consistency,
but what I enjoyed most about it 
were the encouraging comments 
from my blogging buddies.
Thank you!

We're off to the airport now to pick up my big brother. 
He will be staying with us for about 10 days,
so I'll be away from the blog.

Hope to see you soon.

Brother & me.

Happy Halloween!
