Happy National Boyfriend Day!

Ryan Conners

Two years ago I visited my boyfriend in Maryland for the first time. It was a fabulous week and when I came home I thought I’d draw out some of the key moments I remembered. This was our first, out of many, trips to the Baltimore Coffee and Tea shop. Naturally I drew us as cats, because…it’s what I do! I decided to color it with some watercolor pencils today. Trying to keep it as close to actual colors. Only for paintings do I wish I wore more color. >.>

Inktober 2019 – Day 2


Day 2 I’ve learned my Micron pens don’t really live that long after using them on acrylic paintings, so I should probably buy more for Inktober (and for…paintings.) I’m going to make it a habit to start every morning of October with a little drawing for this challenge. I decided that cats are my thing, so I should probably have a cat in every drawing. That said, thinking of something for “mindless” was hard until I was like, “Wait, cats aren’t actually testing gravity by knocking stuff off of things, that’s pretty mindless…”

Inktober 2019 – Day 1

Ryan Conners

Every year I’ve seen the Inktober thing happening, but I’ve never managed to participate. I thought I’d start this year. I’m not really a “drawing” artist. I have an idea, I draw a rough draft and then paint. If you looked at a drawing vs the actual painting you’d probably be like “wut?” Yeah. So anyway, this is my first Inktober post. I’m using a list I saw on Twitter by Jake Palmer. Sure I could have gone with another that had “black cat” as the first, but “ring” immediately reminded me of Sadako from Ringu so I had to go with that. =)
