What started out as reprieve for an angsty teen several years back, became a signature medium. The visit to Chihuly proved to spark more than just inspiration and drove me to revisit memory lane. A shadow to my gifted sibling, I, myself, also found interest in the arts. I followed in my sibling’s footsteps, observing and learning on how to sketch, draw, paint, and what not. I’ve always had this passion for the arts. Truth be told, I loved the arts so much I even considered pursuing it as a career when I was younger. I used lug around with me my art materials wherever my short legs would take me. I practiced and practiced all that I learned from my sibling along with my own amateur discoveries of different techniques, until I gained a foothold of my own style. Drawing with ink is something I take pride in. It’s a different kind of fufilment to be able to express whilst creating a specific craft, unique to one’s self.
Being that every October is an opportunity to celebrate #Inktober, I took my pen in stride and drew in ink once more. Although atypical from the usual one-drawing-a-day entry, I created everything within the month by drawing daily. It's my pleasure to share my contributions with you, dear readers.
