As a kid I had neighbors who were almost like brothers. Their dog was a sweet, big, red haired dog, kind of like Clifford the Big Red Dog. I loved him dearly. He was the inspiration for this drawing, which I did as part of Childhood Week on Instagram. Lately, I’ve been down for any drawing challenge and I’m currently looking for my next one. I’m sad I couldn’t do all of the Childhood Week prompts but this week has been beyond chaotic for me, yet very amazing all in one.
I’ve been drawing so much inspiration from Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights:
“Witch” (based on Hansel and Gretel)
“Magic” (based on the Scandinavian folktale “Saving Spring”)
Above is a screenshot of the prompts if you’re not familiar with them. Folktale week wasn’t nearly as popular as Inktober, but just as inspiring and fun. I’m a huge fan of folktales and children’s books and illustrations. Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights.
