  1. Ooohhhh this is aassome, sorry I’ve not been around much on here. You know when I told you I was struggling with my health issues and it’s took a long time to break through, I did it but then it all came back.
    I did Inktober last year and only got one finished so I was determined to do it, well didn’t get any posted but it doesn’t matter I’ve done 9 drawings which I’m on inking.
    I’m really proud of myself doing 9 drawings in a month 😁😁😁.
    And now you doing pen & ink series. I am actually half way through your pen & ink course. I’ve quite enjoyed drawing with ink pens and bottled ink.The only thing I found challenging is blending with ink, it’s not as easy as ya think.
    Again thanks for everything Matt because I’ve grown so much even though I haven’t thought that myself. And I fell in the house because my bad leg will give way and sometimes I’ve issues with my balance but this time I managed to break my foot, God was agony !!!!
    I have a high pain threshold because of my conditions, anyway I went over on my foot.
    And it’s broken and I was thinking no my Inktober but they gave me. Moon boot helping me walk whilst it’s healing.

    Never rains but it pours…..
    Kind regards Christine 😁
