Inktober Day 28 -Gift

There’s nothing surprising to see a wrapped gift box for a literal interpretation of the word for Inktober Day 28. What I’d like for you to take away from this days sketch is more about what the image says, than its level of artistry or workmanship.

Gift-what is a gift to you?

I have been given many gifts throughout my life to be thankful for, it is my gift of creativity that defines and sustains me, and makes me able to do everything else.

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a highly creative feverishness. It is not like a drug; it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure; it’s a little like making love, the physical act of love. (Francis Bacon)
