31 October Happy Halloween from Imogen

Imogen waited patiently for the children to come with their sing song "Tricks or Treats". She knew which of those two options she was most like to dole out. Happy Halloween. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

30 October Hellena's mending

#inktober Day 30

The Victorian Aunts were finally leaving. Hellena had heaps to do to prepare for a dinner party that evening. And now on top of everything else she had to mend the tear in the Space Time Continuum as well as scrub muddy carriage tracks out of her living room carpet. The to-doing was never done. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

29 October The Victorian Aunts find fast food

#inktober Day 29
The Victorian Aunts were not impressed with the TV dinners. Hellena's next choice of fast food seemed to be a hit. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

28 October Agnes' day comes right in the end

#inktober Day 28

The day had come out quite fine for Agnes. After the mishaps of the morn, she now found herself happily enjoying her Toadstool Tea party after all. The fairies turned out to be rather understanding. They donned their Sunday best and laid out the most lovely tea. Even Puss joined them, with a little punishment thrown in for good measure. A fine day was had by all. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

27 October Agens' Bad day continues

#inktober day 27
Agnes' day was not improving. She hadn't got her tea under the Toadstools. She was currently being kidnapped by Puss. And to top it off, she was spotted by some Fairy Folk. They were the biggest gossips going. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

26 October Two panel illustration of my Imogen Character

When Imogen heard her governess, Miss Reed, on the back stairs of the nursery, she knew that Latin conjugations were not far behind.
"Not today," thought she and slipped into a parallel time shift.
"This way", she smiled " I can have tea with dolly and still enjoy the frantic searchings of Miss Reed." She giggled and all was right with the world.

24 October Books

#inktober2016 day 24

"We have a house filled with books," said Auntie Elsinore, "And yet the most riveting book is whichever one I am currently reading".

23 October Hellena's Coffee Break

#inktober2016 #inktober day 23

With the laundry piled high, the sink full of dirty dishes, and a to-doing list a mile long, Hellena felt the need for a little break.
Sure, she slipped the house into an inter-dimensional stasis, "but," thought she, "all is fair in housework and ME time". #DonnaDavisArt

22 October Rainy Lazy day in the studio

It was a lovely rainy morning in the studio. My hot coffee and window day dreaming won out. Therefore I only managed a scribble of Puss on her favourite shelf. Day 21 #inktober 2016 I wasn't feeling it today, so I did a partial scribble of Puss on her shelf.. #DonnaDavisArt #inktober2016

21 October Hellena Strikes Again

Hellena realized, a bit too late, that if one's relatives have made the effort to visit from the 19th century, TV dinners were probably not the best choice.

19 October Agnes Day Darkens

No shoes and wet through at least the day can't get any worse, thought Agnes. The day, however, begged to differ.

18 October Tea and Toadstools

Agnes thought Tea under the Toadstools a lovely way to while away an afternoon. 
"Well," thought she, "The best laid plans of Teacups and afternoons often go awry" #inktober #inktober2016 #DonnaDavisArt #ToadHallArt

17 October Auntie Elsinore's Holiday

Auntie Elsinore loved having tea with friends. Sometimes, however, she needed a holiday from her old bones.
"What better way," thought she, "Then to be a gnarled tree in one's own garden."
Her friends couldn't agree more.
"However," thought Puss, "I shan't be able to reach the cream up here."#DonnaDavisArt #ToadHallArt #inktober #inktober2016

Imogen strikes again

Posting my daily #inktober2016 pieces here:

Mother always called Imgen her "little Dickens", but Imogen had her own version of that terminology. #DonnaDavisArt #ToadHallArt #inktober #inktober2016

Today's Drawing: a mishap with a spellbook

"I said MICROwave," Hellena shouted over the roar of the tidal wave currently crashing into her living room and freshly waxed floors.#DonnaDavisArt #ToadHallArt #inktober #inktober2016

New Challenge. The month of October I am engaged in inktober

It has been rather a long time since I have posted here. This month I have taken the inktober challenge on Facebook, which has one doing an ink drawing a day. I started it for fun, but am finding myself enjoying the act of daily challenge. Therefore, I shall share them here as well. Since I already started some I will share today's now and make another post with the others up to now.

I hope, if any are still out there, that you won't miss my vintage inspired images. It is just such a part of who I am that it cannot but help appear in my drawings. I believe the hashtag, #DonnaDavisArt on FB would also bring them up.
