Sharpie pen


10/31 Challenge prompt: crawl
"Never laugh as a hearse goes by
Or you may be the next to die.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
And one worm who isn't shy, crawls in your ear
And out your eye."
Sharpie pen, watercolor pencils.

And from Instagram the top three Inktobers:



Tied for 3rd place with 12 likes

  1. You made some fantastic pieces again, love those shoes! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with the election, I can't believe that so many people have voted for He who must not be named. Reminds me of Einstein's quote, 'The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius is limited!' Have a good day, Valerie

  3. I just read your message to Valerie. I wish I was as optimistic as you, dear. I haven't slept in two days and my stomach is in knots. Add to that I allowed myself to get sucked into an irrational argument with Kathy.

    However, I am here to ohh and ahh over your Inktober entries for the week. Just click your heels and you will land in Kansas, dear CJ. I love the shoes.

    These are all so very clever. Each is so good and so different. I love how you interpret the daily prompts. In a way I'm sad it's over, because I really enjoyed these lovely pen and ink drawings you created last month.

    1. I believe in the integrity of the system.

      Clicking my heels and visiting you for real tea would be such a hoot.

    2. that is my goal every morning - i spend an hour reading, meditating, contemplating before I ever get up and do a thing. I have for years and one thing I can attest to - is my life is so much more peaceful now as I let everything flow instead of controlling things i can't. That is the "Power" I had all along and learned to use it - the Universe/God arranges amazing things. damn ..there I go again, lol. If there is the slightest opening I have to share my stuff...

    1. Yeah, on Instagram they give you a heart which translates to a like. We used to sing that ditty when I was a kid. The thought of worms crawling through ears and out eyes grossed me out 😺
