Inktober2017 - Tiny! But Me.


Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


"31 Days 31 Drawings.
Every October artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge and do one ink drawing a day the entire month. Inktober was created by artist Jake Parker as a challenge to improve inking skills and develop positive drawing habits."

This is what Inktober states.

I am attempting Inktober for the very first time. I just hope that I can keep up the momentum and complete all 31.

official Inktober 2017 prompts



Moving away from the official Inktober prompt, I decided to do insects. Tiny lives which aren’t worth living as we humans consider it. In the current times when people don’t value the lives of other people, how can we even think of such tiny lives! I think it all starts from home...when parents teach the value of life even of the tiniest of beings. Everything is valuable to our home – the Earth...Mother Nature. Not one should be overpowered or over shadowed by the other. As our favourite writer in Malayalam, Vaikom Muhammed Basheer, says “Bhoomiyude avakasigal” (Heirs of the Earth).

They are really beautiful. Marvelous work. I am not very good at art work myself but I can appreciate good art when I see it. I like the Colorado Potato Beetle the best as it relates to potato and I am very fond of aloo fry. Can't have much of it though, as I am a mild diabetic
