I was so excited to discover a group of illustrators on Instagram have initiated Folktale Week for November 2018. Needless to say, I joined immediately as Binky McKee, and the response was staggering and I discovered so many amazing illustrators through the hashtag.
Meanwhile, thanks to Folktale Week, I found there are Prompts on Instagram for Inktober. I have always been aware of the hashtag Inktober, but didn't realise there were prompts to follow - so this year I joined rather late in the month, this time following the prompts (I am rather new to social media and its ways). So here we have Day 23, Muddy; Day 24, Chop (I did chop suey, dubious I know) and Day 22 - today's post - Expensive: a portrait of Dolly-Meg the rescue greyhound, who has cost me a fortune in vets' bills for dental treatment and general charging about the place jumping through glass windows, but worth every penny as she is the sweetest, gentlest, funniest soul.
So here you have a sneak preview of the next two days on Instagram, and an idea of what Binky is going to be posting next month - folk tales, exactly her thing.
However, I have plans for new Heather Eliza Walker drawings in the pipeline, too. When my studio is a bit more organised (more boxes to unpack from the house move still to go, and a book-case to find) I will be on to that.
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, I think autumn is so exciting and I love the run-up to Hallowe'en!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
