Spooky Sunday / Inktober Day 31(Risk): My First Horror Story (a risk in itself)

My First Horror Story: Ten Years If you haven’t read yesterday’s post yet, take a quick read for an introduction to this one: https://linesbyleon.com/2021/10/30/weekend-wrap-up-inktober-day-30-slither-somewhat-spooky-saturday/ Done? Great. Let’s continue. Is horror much different from post-apocalyptic or science fiction? When I set out to write this one—yesterday—I wanted to make it an homage to the king ofContinue reading “Spooky Sunday / Inktober Day 31(Risk): My First Horror Story (a risk in itself)”

Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 30 (Slither): Somewhat Spooky Saturday

All previous drawings: https://linesbyleon.com/inktober/ Weekend Wrap-up It’s Saturday. “Tell us something we don’t know…” When I realized that Halloween landed on a Sunday—how often does that happen? “More often than when it lands on Friday the 13th. Now, that would be spooky.” Well anyway, I decided to take advantage of the alliterative possibility, and createdContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 30 (Slither): Somewhat Spooky Saturday”

Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 23 (Leak): What can you draw?

All previous drawings: https://linesbyleon.com/inktober/ I’ve been told I’m good at drawing hands. Well, the left hand…or the right hand when it’s holding a pen or pencil. I’m blown away by how some artists can draw with such realism. Talent? Of course. Practice? Definitely. So, any chance I get to draw a hand I’ll take. AskContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 23 (Leak): What can you draw?”

Tuesday Tidbits / Inktober Day 19 (Loop): Too Much or Too Little

Too Much or Too Little I don’t like wasting food. I try to keep the contents of my refrigerator to a minimum, but sometimes the perfect storm arrives. Which has my fridge fuller than usual. A good sale at the grocery store. What I took out from the freezer a few days ago waits patientlyContinue reading “Tuesday Tidbits / Inktober Day 19 (Loop): Too Much or Too Little”

Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 16 (Compass): The only constant is change.

All previous drawings: https://linesbyleon.com/inktober/ Anyone else caught off guard with the changes in the WordPress editor? My preview pane no longer opened in front of my editing page, and the font was different than if was before. Did I do something? Change a setting inadvertently? Nope. They changed it. Didn’t tell me, did they tellContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up / Inktober Day 16 (Compass): The only constant is change.”

Weekend Wrap-up: Who’s been taking my peanuts?

I feed the birds all year. Not a lot in the warm months, just enough so they won’t forget me. Mostly chickadees and sparrows come to partake in the seeds and grubs, but the other day I heard the melodious squawk and gurgle of a blue jay. Perched on my rail was the blue beast.Continue reading “Weekend Wrap-up: Who’s been taking my peanuts?”

Free Book Friday: Oct 1

October. You know what that means. You missed all the Halloween stuff at the store and all the Christmas accoutrements have been placed on the shelves. Wait. What?! I know. You also missed the Thanksgiving decorations. Thankfully you have kept the centerpiece from last year…and the year before that. It also means that Inktober hasContinue reading “Free Book Friday: Oct 1”

Weird Wednesday: Cartoons and a Guessing Game

I post “The Miniscules” on Instagram @lines_by_leon every Monday, but I’ll put them here on Wednesday as well. Monday’s “Miniscule Monday” continuing the fairy tale theme. I came across my Inktober sketches, but I have no idea what word each was supposed to represent. Do you? I introduced a new cartoon two weeks ago. ItContinue reading “Weird Wednesday: Cartoons and a Guessing Game”
