Inktober Day 27 - Blown Ink

Yesterday on my post, Deedles commented,

"And I quote, 'sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug' . Good luck with the new laptop, Angelcake."

So I knew what today's sketch would be. I snapped a picture of me driving my van and that was the reference photo. For the splattered bug, I used three colors of Windsor and Newton ink and blew the ink around with a cover of my paint brush. I was going to use a straw but I thought the circumference of the straw was too big. 

The last 7 days, I definitely felt like the bug dealing with our internet provider and with the folks who are replacing our carpet upstairs. But today, I'm feeling like the windshield - don't mess with me.. Lol

So are you the windshield or the bug today?


  1. I love you so much, Angelcake! I've been trying for twenty-three years to get my son to draw me a poster of this, since he was fourteen. You knock it out in one day! So cool! My day started out kind of buggy but now things are looking up. This cheered me up so much! Thank you Ms Kari <3


  2. This one is great and true and made me smile. Love it!!

    1. Thank you, Mia! Sometimes when you're frustrated, using humor helps to diffuse the angst. 😊
