remember to set your clock to quixotic mama

today! on quixotic mama
there is
(in the spirit of my old blog over yon)
a story of an epiphany about being an empath
and!
(in the spirit of my new quixotic mama transformation)
a daily drawing
of a big blue beardo rooster…
enjoy!

more quixotic; less apocalyptic

i have started posting my art on my other website.
i have made a gallery page over there.
i also made a page of my inktober drawings.
i hope to do a page for each episode of moses jones.

and it will all be found over at the new place.

today’s ink blot test is there now! check it out…

INKtober–it’s over when i say it’s over

i’m that person who refuses to leave when the party is over and just stands there awkwardly as they clean up around me.
i’m that person who refuses to believe that their favorite band has broken up and i still talk about their next album coming out soon, as i call them all by just their first names.
i am that person who leaves christmas decorations up until easter.
i’m that person who keeps posting inktober drawings even though it is novemeber.
(i did this one yesterday.)

INKtober day thirty-one–narwhal

so i told a friend that i don’t like it when unicorns show up in my inkstains because (no offense to people who love unicorns & do unicorn art) unicorns just are not my style. then i joked that i should do a narwhal. also! today is the birthday of a good friend of mine (hope you like original art for your birthday!) who has the nickname “narwhal” and lo & behold, i did find a narwhal in my final inktober drawing!! although i now realize that a narwhal has more of a tusk than a horn…but, i have been consistently fantastical with my interpretations of nature, so….

and a kelpie.

haha! not a unicorn. a little cooler than a unicorn. plus, you may have noticed, i have a thing for underwater scenes (or steampunky airship flying whales & whatnot scenes). i think sea creatures are amazing & fun to draw.

so there you have it.

a narwhal & a kelpie.

plus, you know, some jellyfish & seahorses thrown in for good measure.

i put so many layers of ink on this one. there was the ink stain. then the pen. then some orange. then some green. then some more pink. some black. and then more pen. ink ink ink ink ink! happy inktober!

INKtober day thirty–planet of the apes

so if you are wondering, it started with the ape. i saw him first in my ink blots. then a baby hand (humans are technically apes as well–but you know…) then i started looking for more babies. and then flowers and bugs appeared. i stared at it a long time. then once it started rolling, it really fell together.

sigh. only one more day after today.

i keep waiting for that one picture where someone goes, “seriously, what happened to you, man?” so far everyone has been really open to my strange artist visions. my whimsy. which is awesome. i do sometimes tame it down. like yesterday, i saw a boob instead of a chicken, but i turned the picture instead of going with the boob–and found the chicken. so i am using some restraint.

today is a new moon. that has nothing to do with my drawing…or does it? new moons are new beginnings. planting the seeds of manifestation. inktober has been heavy seeding for me. my art has definitely started growing in a direction that i really like.

i did not do any moses jones this month. or any comics at all. but a lot of my drawings turned out to be stories. stories that came from my subconscious, pulled out by a page full of ink stains.

ps. the scribble along the bottom is misha’s contribution.
