#Inktober Gallery

This year I took on the inktober challenge (one ink drawing a day for each day in October, posted to Instagram or other social media sites) along with artists around the world.

Take a look at www.inktober.com to see what it’s all about, and check out my own gallery of fresh ink drawings :). Click here or see the Sketchbook tab.

Some of these are available as prints at http://society6.com/sydniart/prints :).

Atrium Project

For now, just bouncing ideas back and forth with my client to establish the layout of the room. The main concern is that everything be almost completely covered in plants. Nearing the final painting soon. Stay tuned!
