The prompt for today is POISON. After my disappointing cartoon of yesterday, and the fun I had on day 1 copying a painting of Jonathan Swift using pen and ink, I decided that for the rest of Inktober I am going to try to find images of people that relate in some way to the prompts, and then copy them in ink. I may use wash on occasion, but mostly I'll stick to line drawings. It is a good exercise to translate shades of grey into line art.
My drawing for POISON is from an old photograph of Herbert Rowse Armstrong, the only British lawyer to be hanged for murder, according to robertwalshwriter.wordpress.com. He used arsenic to kill his wife and then attempted to kill a professional rival, unsuccessfully.
