INKTOBER SKETCHES OUT OF MY JOURNAL

 I do quick sketches every day so I really don't need to call them Inktober...I just like the name.  The face in this collage... the only reason I drew it in my journal is I was talking to my sister one night on the phone and I never talk on the phone, especially if there is a pen and paper nearby without sketching something or other.  For some reason i started with a face and this is what I ended up.  She's kind of scary, this face I drew,  so it fits in with October.

I'm just "aghast" ..( i have never ever used that word before in anything I've written...I kind of like it)...at how time is flying.  The older you get the faster it flies.  I have to laugh at myself when I look back and realize when my sons were kids how frigging long a year took to get through - even a month, but especially a day.   Now it's literally flying like an October witch.. that image just came to me as i was writing...oh well..

Just realized aghast could be aghost, hmm.

Anyway happy Saturday.  We have had rain, fog and chill and the sun is shining right now.   

Each image was on a page in my journal.  I never know what might get sketched until i start writing.

So maybe you sketch when we're talking and I think we have a dropped call but instead you probably are sketching and forget we're talkin? haha. Nice quick sketches and the face is a bit disturbing. ;)

Opps, the lady is scary but it reminds me of one of my teachers in school. She had large red lips like your lady though yours is in black. She was a good teacher but we were only 12 years old then and really scared of her! The leaf reminds me of autumn. I also tend to multi task when I am on the phone!

I love to read your meandering thoughts. And look at your sketches, you are so talented. Weather is OK on our mountain, no rain yet this season. But we are under Wind Advisory tomorrow, with a high of 49 degrees and a low of 29. Sounds like a good day to stay at home.

Well, I for one am aghast at you being aghast at using the word aghast. Actually, I've never used it either and I am aghast at that too. Well, ok, I'm leaving now. ;)

Thanks Inger. I guess because I'm "sketchy", i see pictures in my mind when writing something...like the witch in October. i have to put it down because otherwise, it would be a waste of a mental image, lol..does that make sense. Just now I thought, I have never seen that phrase and thought it was unique to me...but now i might do a google search...about the witch in October. Wow you are colder than we are at night.

those lips I am sure are really deep red if she is seen in color, lol. yes 12 years old that would be a scary face to see.

I've always sketched when on the phone. During my motherhood young years with little kids and then teenagers, and working at the same time I would always sketch boxes. It finally dawned on me i felt boxed in. usually it's flowers now but for some reaosn that face just wanted to be drwn.

I don't think the lady is scary, but she looks like a stern school teacher. Wonderful sketches, I like the lily

i love the spontaneity you describe here ,i can relate so well when i sit to write post it is always with empty head lol and then thoughts come along slowly (thankfully) :) i feel i have soooooo much to say but at the moment everything just disappears that makes me to avoid taking deadlines .
i too find it bit annoying the way time flies by swiftly in this age :(

oh i absolutely Loved the sketches ,yes the lady seems from some scary mysterious movie ooh.
health ,peace and happiness to you and loved ones!
These are great sketches.
I sometimes doodle when I am on the phone ...

Don't the weeks go quickly, enjoy the remainder of this one and have a good weekend.

All the best Jan
