Trying to capture storm and movement with ink, I feel like this is what ink is made for!

Ink painting on a canvas sheet:
a couple of new rainfrog drawings have emerged over the weeks, they are also very seasonal and colorful. I’ve also added some inspirations.
Some time ago someone looked up and noticed a huge hole in the sky. She phoned it in and was asked to immediately shut the hole down and stop doing whatever was causing the hole, because otherwise the space would get in and fry us up alive if it remained open for too long. We got a couple of other trial holes and a sneak peak, did a review on it and decided we don’t want the planet to burn to crisp. For about thirty years everyone stayed on track and the trial holes in the sky were healing steadily and starting to close down. Years later on a very regular day, someone started secretly smoking up some skyhole gas into the sky, hoping they wouldn’t get caught and noone would notice. A great plan in all the details, besides the huge sky hole getting bigger right above their heads that really ruins all the sky photos. This has been the story of a huge secret factory with very small hands, and it will have a happy ending soon.
“The desert rain frog is spending the day dug into sand. It emerges at night and wanders about.” Wikipedia

I was just excited to try pastels again, the last time I tried them it was pretty frustrating, so I was very happy that I found a better way to use them today. I guess the beginner tip would be to start with sepia instead of 48 colors and take twice as much as papers as you need, so you can trash half of the tries.
So in the spirit of all this, I will add a nice quote from Silicon Valley.
Pete: I used to take a tampon, soak it in grain alcohol, and stick it up into my rectum. That got me high, Richard, but not half as high as the drug you just gave me. You know what that drug’s called? — A second chance.
