#HumpDayHaikus in Optimistic October

I can't believe it's already October! This year is just flying by.

I've been itching for the scavenger hunt/pirate ship theme. And to draw a kraken so it looks like the stars aligned on this one.

Inktober 2015: Week 1

So what I have found out from the Hump Day Haiku project is that I enjoy drawing.

When I stumbled across @monterteaparty's inktober list, which is all about Halloween (my favorite holiday), I had to jump on board.

I have missed drawing minions, so in addition to the Halloween theme, all these drawings will be related to my favorite banana eating twinkies with big eyes and overalls.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoy drawing!

Oct 1: Trick or Treat

Oct 2: Spider

#HumpDayHaiku in Serendipitous September

September 2nd:

Socal has been experiencing a heat wave for a few weeks. It's finally starting to cool down and has even been overcast for a few days. Here's my version of a "rain dance" plea:

Bring on some showers!

And because I'm a bit of a Nerd, I drew the moon to reflect its phase tonight: a waning gibbous.  ��

September 9th:

Today is Teddy Bear Day! I was thinking about what to draw for this week's #humpdayhaiku when I remembered this art exhibit I saw in San Diego in 2009. The. 1000 Teddies project. Philipp Jordan is the German artist that created it and I thought I'd pay tribute to him for it since you'll see that I borrowed his idea, just in a different medium. Looks like he has a new project on display:

In any case, I took a couple dozen pictures and decided to use that as the basis of my haiku since it's Teddy Bear Day.

Here's a photo from that exhibit:

And here's my haiku:

September 16th:

I'm a self proclaimed sunset chaser.  I go to the beach to catch the sunset as often as I can. Lately the waves have been huge, and surfers are out on droves. They inspired this week's #humpdayhaiku

September 23rd:

The heat wave has yet to subside but it's officially the first day of fall! Here's hoping that we get some cooler weather soon.

September 30th:

Beantown is my home away from home after I spent two short years here during grad school at BU.

Here I attempted to merge a few of Boston's icons, the Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge and the Public Garden ducks.

I could probably write a ton of haikus for this city, because it's awesome and there is so much to it!
