October in our Painted Diaries was all about drawing. Riet even provided us with some spooky prompts. But I wanted to try Mab Graves’s Drawlloween, so I used those prompts instead.

I decided to challenge myself and only use a pencil for this. I felt very much out of my league compared to other artists who where participating in Drawlloween.

I definitely enjoyed the process of researching what some of these creatures were and then thinking of how to bring them to life in my diaries.

In combination with my Inktober project, this was a month full of drawing and that felt good.

There is something to be said about pairing down supplies and stretching those artistic muscles.

I hope you had a spooky October in your diaries as well!
