31 Days of Leaves: #leaftober 2021

October is usually my favorite month. But this one was different. This one was hard.

Instead of doing the daily #inktober* challenge and using prompts from the main project or one of the many flavors, I needed something reflective, cathartic, meditative and simple. And a subject I could easily find no matter where I was. I chose to draw a leaf each day. So #leaftober.

The series was published daily on Instagram and weekly on Facebook. The full collection is below.

The complete set.

* I’m aware of the concerns about #inktober and Jake Parker’s book issues. I’m using the #inktober tag because that is what this how I originally published the work.
