To those of you who don’t know about the Inktober Challenge it is where you must try create a series of drawings [one every day] over the month of October in Ink following the prompts given at the start. Mab’s Drawlloween Club is the same process but a different version as you can create art in whatever form for this one and with a different set of prompts each day. Both a great way of artistically challenging yourself to create something new everyday.
For the last few years I have tried to keep up with this challenge and made my own pieces for each, however this year I decided to take on a combined prompts challenge as I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up with two pieces each day with my other work on.. And so here is the first installment, [come back each Wednesday Morning to see the next week lot of work] if you can’t wait for the next follow my Instagram fwright95 to keep up-to-date with it all!
DAY ONE: POISONOUS & WITCH
So here is Poisonous & Witch combined in the original Disney Witch from Snow White and her Poisonous Apple, a dark nightmare I’m sure for many children watching this animated feature from 1937, a true classic of witches.

DAY TWO: TRANQUIL & BLACK CAT
And for Day Two Tranquil & Black Cat you can find my happy relaxed kitty in her lovely bed of pillows.. Stay tuned Daily for more Inktober & Drawlloween Madness!
– painted with black ink –
DAY THREE: ROASTED & CRYPTID
I imagined first of all this fire breathing dragon and then to really bring home the roasted feel he would being roasting marshmallows but got a little carried away and ended up more roasting himself!
– painted with coloured and black ink –
DAY FOUR: SPELL & MUSHROOM
I totally imagined up a cute mushroom trying to be a witch and learn some spells.. Didn’t think how it completely changes the idea of magic mushroom..
– drawn with black and coloured fineliners –
DAY FIVE: CHICKEN & LABORATORY
My little Chicken Scientist in His Laboratory ^-^ Sketch in Fineliners, did plan on a better colouring technique but long full day so here is my scribble shading.. Which I now know works much more effectively with Biros.
– drawn with black fineliners –
DAY SIX: DROOLING & GHOST
This Ghost is more made up of drool than ectoplasym..
– drawn with black fineliners, sharpie and kurecolor pens –
DAY SEVEN: EXHAUSTED & HAUNTED OBJECT
I immediately imagined this strange image of myself flat out after a long days work and then my bed suddenly being this haunted object.. So here it is. Beds do not make for good haunted objects unless wanting to abduct an exhausted human.
