Drawing October Days – Week One Posted on October 6, 2015 by Katy Gilmore Share this:LinkedInFacebook Related
I have always been a fan of your pen and ink drawings, color or not. Bravo! Love, Jane
Thank you sweet Jane!
I am taken with this idea of drawing October days, and look forward to more black and white entries. What a very sweet tea set, and how wonderful to see one of my “Bloomsbury” chairs in this post. Sorry about your favorite pen. How attached and dependent we get to these tools, and how very hard it is to replace them. The modern ones just aren’t the same.
Thanks Carol – I’ve been taking the pen apart again this morning, but all I have to show is inky fingers!
What a day brightener this is! Thank you, Katy.
A treat to hear from you Mary – thank you for cheering me on!
Hi Katy . Your blog and red house are my favorites!! Please send name of workbook for TinTin. Jimmy loved those and I haven’t seen a workbook for series – googled but no hits. Warmly, netzy

Hi Netzy, not technically a workbook – called an activity book. Here’s the link to Powell’s Books in Portland where I got it:
I enjoy so much following your processing, of pen and ink and life. And, thanks for the Tin Tin recommendation. I know just the boy in our family for this. Susan
Oh good Susan, i spotted that book and came to a stop! You must know one if those children for whom TinTin such a pleasure.
Oh, I love your rendering of the tea set!! And your other images as well. Pen and ink is so beautiful (even though my fingers itch, wanting to fill in with color.)
Thanks Vicki, and it’s strange you should say that about coloring in. We were just in several big bookstores, and I was startled to see whole display counters devoted to “adult coloring books” – apparently meant to be tension releasers. Maybe there is a future for me. xo
I like the Elizabeth at Powells drawing! It’s very Portland and you too… Sounds like it was a wonderful talk, wish I could have been there….
Thanks Sue- you would have loved EG!
