Inktober 2016 : Guess the Sayings

2016 was the first year I managed to get myself organised for Inktober. I decided to illustrate sayings.

After putting a few of these up with the sayings, my friend Mick said it would be better if he could guess them. So I began to put them up without captions (answers below). NB. I’ve since coloured some of the ink drawings.

2016inktober-jackofalltrades

Though sometimes I felt like I should have been using the time for something else (like marketing FAB Club…), it was fun to do something different. A lot of the drawings are throwaway doodles, but some are worth keeping, so it was a useful exercise.

But I’m glad it’s November!
