Inktober Third Week of Drawings

Inktober is the perfect month to share with you some of the work by my cousin, Todd Heimdahl. He is an artist who creates ink drawings like these on this page. They are spare and quiet and set us right into the empty prairie that he loves to draw.















Can't you just feel the chill of the snow and the stillness in the air? 
Todd's work can be found at Prairie Edge Trading Co. & Galleries        

I've been working hard at some drawings for a printmaking class at Kala Institute in Berkeley. The instructor is Kazuko Watanabe, a terrific teacher. I'm saving my next batch of Inktober drawings for next week.

Enjoy Todd's work instead!

Check out Kala Institute at http://kala.org  They offer classes in printmaking and digital arts. Great place for artists to get together! And right next to Berkeley Bowl, a visual food treat.

  2. I found myself looking for hidden faces and other features in these drawings. I especially like the last one with the trees.

    1. Now there's another thing I like to do -- look for something hidden in drawings! Thanks for the comments. I will pass them on to Todd.
