As you may know if you follow my Twitter or Instagram, I’m taking part in Inktober as a way to get back in touch with ink, a medium I used to use all the time but rarely do now. Here are a few quick photos of some pieces that will form a series based on classic RPG monster archetypes. Here we have a radish nymph, a diamond hoarding gnome and a beetle knight.

My scanner isn’t working so sorry for the horrible photos!

I finally watched Frozen and OH MY GOD the trolls! I had to draw my own! Frozen was much better than I was expecting it to be- I love the songs, the snow animation and even Olaf! I give it 4 out of 5 sandwiches.

These have officially sold out! I probably wont be printing anymore unless I get a lot of interest- but thank you everyone that brought one! :)
