Besides, I’m participating for the first time in INKTOBER, an annual art effort to develop skills with direct use of ink on paper…but that’s beyond me, so I’m attempting the same style (no erasing!) with my digital favorite Inkscape. For me, the exercise is #Inkscapetober.
Today’s prompt is “DROOL”
