This is an overview page for the 31 drawings that I made during Inktober 2016

The sequence runs in reverse chronological order from October 31st at the top to October 1st at the bottom.

The initial concept, if I can call it that, was that I would use some pseudo medical terms to inspire a humorous drawing of a head with some extra elements. 

Quickly it became clear that I was drawing about some recent health issues I had over the summer, and all of the research that I had done on "Functional" or "Alternative" medicine while working on improving the situation.  I also came to the conclusion that I could only inflict these indignities on my own likeness, so they are all self portraits, kind of. And I was still hoping that they would be funny.

Keeping the stakes low, I used some paper I found in a drawer. I think it might have been 20 or more years old. Each sheet is around 15" x 11" The drawings are pencil, ink and watercolor.
