Inspired by...

Century Girl by Lauren Redniss. The illustrated biography of Doris Eaton Travis. I haven't had a chance to read the book yet, but found the illustrations to be very inspiring. The pages are done art journal style with collages and handwritten text.

Below are a few of my favorite spreads, along with a couple of my sketchbook pages that were loosely inspired by pictures in the book.

Inktober Drawings 11 - 20

A little behind posting these, but I've been drawing them everyday.
I experimented with layering blue and black ink and loved the results!


This is a stencil by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer that I filled in with doodles.
Halo inspired by something Samantha Kira Harding drew, 5 deep breaths necklace inspired by Liz Lamoreux.



This one started as an ink drawing and evolved into this mixed media page. Titled Ruled by the Moon.
