Day 5 of Inktober 2021. Something a bit different today.
This is a the graveyard where we walk our dog near my parent’s house. It’s so beautiful and peaceful, and with the changing weather it seemed the perfect topic for an Inktober drawing.
I quite like this style, it was fun to do. What do we think?
In 2020 I realised I am way more of a perfectionist than I thought I was. The solution to that is to churn out as many happy digital birds as possible.

I’m posting them over on my Instagram first (@artjmtinsta) so you can follow along there.
I really struggled with Inktober today. I’ve never had artist block quite so bad before. At first I tried drawing a pile of Lego, then a treehouse, and finally settled on a little nest.
I think drawing small and sticking to limited materials really helped.
Maybe I’ll try to invest a bit more time in tomorrow’s piece to feel more proud. I suppose the important thing is just that there’s something on the paper.
