Revealed by Leslie Goldman 2017 Chapbook

By Leslie Goldman

40 pages, published 11/22/2017

Revealed 31 Drawings Discovered in Ink is a collection of artwork created by Leslie Goldman. These works were made during the month of October in 2017 for the social media based event Inktober. Many of these whimsical and imaginative drawings emerged from ink spots and were embellished and discovered as the ink was blown and brushed on to the page.

October is Inktober!

This year I decided to do the Inktober challenge! Every day in October I am trying to complete one ink drawing and post it online. I aim to complete 31 drawings by the end of October... preferably one each day though some days I'm more productive than others. Follow them all on my Facebook and Instagram

All of my Original Inktober works will be for sale at the end of October for $65 each. Please contact me if you are interested.

Thanks for following!  

The entire collection of Inktober sketches are now available in a book titled Revealed - 31 Drawings Discovered in Ink offered by MagCloud for $18
