Wild (Inktober 2019 – Sixteen)

And I’m caught up!

See, this is why I kinda “skipped” the previous entry (not really, but sort of) for Inktober, I didn’t want to have to rush too much for this one or run the risk to get even more behind schedule. I’m pretty happy with today’s drawing for Wild:

I didn’t discover Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are until quite “recently” (i.e. not as a kid, but as a teenager or even young adult), I guess the book wasn’t known in France yet when I was little, not sure. At the time, I remember not really liking the drawings because of the way Sendak uses hatching for shading and volume.

Little did I know that years or even decades later, it would become one of my favorite techniques when I draw (mostly because of Jean “Moebius” Giraud, also because I kinda know what I’m doing with hatching, not so much with some other techniques).
