Bones, Skulls, and Skeletons for Inktober 2017
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Melissa Washburn | Share link:

I’m participating in illustrator Jake Parker’s Inktober on Instagram again this year. I chose natural history, specifically bones, skulls, and skeletons, as a theme for interpreting each day’s prompts. Inktober is a great way to practice daily drawing, flex your conceptual muscles, and generate ideas for future projects. Bones and skulls are fantastic subject matter for black and white drawing, and perfectly creepy for the month leading up to Halloween! You can follow my daily drawings on Instagram, and search #inktober to see a great variety of work by participating artists.

I had the pleasure of commissioning Melissa to create a fundraising illustration for dragonfly conservation. Melissa not only delivered a captivating image, on deadline, she also went above and beyond by hand-coloring each and every one of her prints. Melissa is a talented professional who understands the big impact of small details and going the extra mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa as an illustrator, a professional, and a genuinely nice person.
