Inktober 2020 - Day 14 - Armadillo
Armadillos are pretty fascinating. I mean, most animals are right until you see them all the time? I'm not sure I've ever seen a live armadillo. Sad that their armor protects them from a lot of things but not cars. Did you know they can jump 4 - 5ft in the air? They also eat loads of bugs - 90% or more of their diet!
I included a little ant, which is one of their favorites apparently, also a moth and in the constellations - scorpio and the fly.
It was fun playing around today with some different styles and adding some little things I don't normally do, like using watered down ink with smaller brushes and a crow quill pen (which makes the BEST grass).
The original was 8 x 10
*frame not included - first 2 photos show the print, other photos are the original, color may vary slightly from what is shown in the photos
print sizes available:
- 5 x 7
- 6 x 8
- 8.5 x 11 (it is the same size artwork as 8 x 10, but with extra white border)
Each print is hand signed by the artist. The gold metallic is added by hand after printing - please allow an extra day for the metallic to be added.
They are printed on archival, acid free paper- 100% cotton, cold press natural (no whiteners) - it matches the paper I use for most of my original drawings. And cotton is a more sustainable, eco friendly alternative to wood pulp.
Printed in my studio with an Epson SureColor p800 with UltraChrome HD ink
