“I love wild flowers! I love being surrounded by nature even though I kill almost all of my live plants! Negatory Green thumb am I! Does that make sense? Either way I’m going with it hahaha. Any who, there are many wild sayings that pretty much feel like they are lil reminders to tell me from up above that I am the way i am on purpose. This is me! Broken. Not perfect but ridiculously a wild dreamer. So to you wild ones follow your wild heart and remember wild hearts can’t be broken!” ❤️

What’s Inktober?

From Jake Parker:

“Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

I created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.”
