–The Salt Lake Tribune, Sunday Morning, October 30, 1904
So like I said, didn’t quite get it going for Inktober 2016, but I’ve done the challenge before…reminisce with me.
I drew wolpertingers; well except for that snaky cat head. I am dangerously close to naming the wolpertinger my spirit animal, because why not?
“I’ll collar a vertical care-grinder come Saint Geoffrey’s Day.”
collar (v) to get, to obtain, to comprehend. Ex. “I gotta collar me some food”, “Do you collar this jive?” (Cab Calloway’s Cat-ologue 1939)
Vertical Care-Grinder: a slang term for the treadmill (The slang dictionary: or, the vulgar words, street phrases and fast expressions of high and low society by John Camden Hotten, 1870 )
SAINT GEOFFREY’S DAY. Never, there being no saint of that name: tomorrow-come-never, when two Sundays come together. (Passing English of the Victorian era : a dictionary of heterodox English, slang and phrase by Andrew Forrester in 1909)
To sum up: “I’ll never get a treadmill.” …didn’t it sound better in slang?
Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.
Inktober, 31 days, 31 drawings
Time again for every instagram, twitter and tumblr dashboard to blow up with inktober drawings. There is so much amazing art out there I think it kind of makes up for me not getting my head wrapped around it one this year.
If Inktober isn’t your thing, there is always Drawlloween:
If you have clicked around on the site lately, you may have noticed some changes, especially where the comics are concerned. In an attempt to raise the profile of the comics, I have given them their own mini-sites within the LeEMSmachine.
This means, for you RSS feed reader readers, that the RSS feed you are currently subscribed to for the Bean will not show the comics. I’ll post alerts here when there is a comic posting, and especially when a new comic story line is debuting…which will happen soon. In the meantime, explore and have fun!
This was suggested to me long ago, and then I took a while to draw it, and then I took a while to finish the sketchbook it was in so I could scan it. And then I took a long while before I colored it. I hope you like.
My search for author voices in the copyright debate leads me to old newspapers and magazines. I thought Judge magazine would bear more copyright fruit than it did, however, it did include this little gem about happenings in my home state. The gentleman is saying: “Pardon me, madam, but could I borrow your infant for a few hours tomorrow night. I want to use him to attract alligators.”
And this other pictures is just pretty, and pretty sneaky. I might be dense, but I didn’t get it until I looked at it for the third time.
Just one more reason why the IT Crowd is awesome!
