Pen and Ink Drawings by Allison Janicki
As a self-proclaimed artist since childhood, I love experimenting with new medium and subject matter in every piece.
The drawings in this set were created during Inktober 2018, a world-wide initiative that gives a prompt for every day in October for artists to interpret as they wish, usually with a pen as their only tool.
I found that most of my pieces were influenced by either what I did or how I felt on that particular day.
I love art for this reason—that I can have my own interpretation and understanding of my work, yet every viewer can have their own individual reaction with the same piece.
For me, art is personal, and I will continue to create as long as it makes me happy.
