Done with #inktober2019! Happy to be done. Highlights from today and yesterday.

26. Boketto, gazing from afar.
29. Kilig, the excitment felt when one is first in love.
30. Crown, not an obscure word.
31. Catharsis, the liberation of supressed tension or emotion.

I am not finishing #inktober2019 in October, but I got five done today. This is my favourite.

28. Nyctophilia, prefering the night or darkness.

The trip to the Muji store was marvelous. I bought a lot of things (haul tomorrow). Now ready to leave for home. I managed to do two #inktober drawings today.

15. Petrichor, the smell of the soil after rain;
18. Monachopsis, feeling like one is not in one's rightful place.

Aimeesue I love that earthworm! 2mo
tournevis @Aimeesue Thank you! 2mo
batsy I love Muji 💜 2mo
tournevis @batsy I bought a lot of things, but they were out of a lot of what I was looking for, sadly. 2mo

Last for today, super ultra cliché.

16. Ephemeral, which does not last

Perhaps not quite finished.

20. Eccedentisiast, one who smiles to hide one's discomfort.

Got very much behind in doing #inktober2019. Will have to do a few a day to get back on track. Here is a glimpse.

13. Lotus, sacred flower;
17. Eternal, which has no end (concept from my 9yo son);
19. Anhedonia, inability to feel pleasure or joy.

OnlyYoo These are beautiful! 2mo

Missed a few days of #Inktober2019, so I'm only posting #day12 #ObscureWords

Nephetibata : One who has one's head in the clouds.

Come-read-with-me @tournevis This is a lovely illustration for the definition. You really do own this! 2mo
tournevis @Come-read-with-me I shamelessly copied Magritte, but thank you! 😘 2mo

Spiral: A curve which emanates from a point, moving farther away as it revolves around the point.

Clare-Dragonfly Spiral is an obscure word? 2mo
tournevis @Clare-Dragonfly I guess? It's on Nikolas Tower's list. 🤷 2mo

Glipse of what I did today for #inktober. I got behind and had to do three, but my hands are shaking enough that I had to keep things simpler than I like. I'm happy with the ideas. #ObscureWords
Tacenda : things left unsaid
Kalopsia : thinking one is better looking than in reality
Paroxysm : sudden or violent emotion or reaction

Purrsistently Love!!! 2mo
Crazeedi These are marvelous 2mo

#day1 of #Inktober2019 using the Obscure Words prompt list by artist Nikolas Tower. I went simplistic and uber-cliché for this, because I've had a long day and my hands are shaking. 👨‍🎤👩‍🎤

If anyone objects to me posting Inktober here, please tell me. I don't want to spam your feed.

twohectobooks Please continue! I‘m actually thinking of doing this after seeing your posts. 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly Very cool! I am happy that you‘re posting Inktober here. 2mo

The official #inktober2019 prompts are out and they look good (shown above). I'm still going to do the more bookish Obscure Words prompts I posted a couple days ago https://www.instagram.com/p/B1qwWfnCdPE/. I translated copied the words in I'll let everything steep for a month. My sketchbook is ready to go; I'll mostly use pen and ink with dabs of watercolour. My hope is to use this to rest my brain as I plow through teaching. #arting

Clare-Dragonfly Will you be posting your drawings here? Or on Instagram? I‘d love to see them! 3mo
tournevis @Clare-Dragonfly On IG for sure. I don't know about here. I'll ask closer to the date. The prompts are Obscure words, so somewhat bookish, but not book related. I don't want to spam people's feeds. 3mo

Any artistic #littens on here thinking of doing #inktober this year? I'm thinking with all the work reading, writing, and teaching I'll be doing I might need a non-verbal outlet to rest my brain. The official prompts come out Sept. 1st, but these ones sounds especially bookish.

OnlyYoo Lol when I saw inktober I totally thought it was a tattoo thing! I still don‘t know what jnktober is but it sounds super cool 4mo
pilardib I'm not a very artistic person 😅 but this sounds fun! Maybe I'll give it a try 4mo
Crazeedi So this goes live in October? Not sure how this works, guess I'll observe 4mo

tournevis @OnlyYoo Tats! I'm sure someone does it that way! @pilardib @Crazeedi You can learn more here: https://inktober.com/ 31 prompts for 31 days where you draw/doodle/sketch in ink. That's it! 4mo
Crazeedi @tournevis thank you so much!!! 4mo
