It's officially October, and with the days getting shorter, and weather becoming more miserable, it's easy to get stuck in a rut.We like to think we're a creative bunch here at Clearbox, so we've decided to take on Inktober 2017 to kickstart our imaginations, and get us thinking outside the box.Inktober is an annual art challenge throughout the month of October, where artists do a different ink/pen drawing every day, using an official prompts list. The overall aim of Inktober is to foster creativity and help overcome creative block, and we're all for that!We decided to put our artistic skills to the test and have a go at today's prompt, “long”.So without further ado, here are the team's interpretations of “long” for #Inktober2017…John
Claire HamiltonThe first thing that popped into my head was a very long road.AnnaI draw like a 5 year old. Here's my inner 5 year old's interpretation of long. A giraffe (in case you can't tell what it is.)GrainneThe word 'long' instantly made me think of 'long serve', and more particularly, my favourite mixed drink of the moment the Black and White - a 35ml serving of Black Bush with a dash of white lemonade garnished with a zesty wedge of orange. If you haven't yet tried it, I highly recommend. And just incase you hadn't gathered - it looks nothing like my drawing in real-life.DanielIt took me so LONG to decide what to draw I only had time to draw this.Charlotte I went a little left field with mine, thinking about how a quick journey for us is a lot longer from an ant's perspective…Claire BestLong = 'dragon' in Vietnamese.And who doesn't love a mythical fire-breathing creature?!AshleyPneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust.”Boom.NatalieI'm pretty obsessed with dogs, so it figures that the thing that popped into my head first was a lil' sausage dog.Unfortunately my drawing skills couldn't do the lil' creature much justice, but there you have it.Think you could do better than the Clearbox team?
