Yes, there are really fish called whale sharks! In looking up pictures of whales, I came across this creature, and if you look at online images, you will see it is a beautifully patterned shark, as well as learn that it migrates long distances, and is a gentle animal, feeding on plankton and such as it swims along. I thought it was so beautiful that it had to be the Inktober #12 offering.
The weekend was super busy, so I am a bit behind with my Inktober commitment, but the commitment continues. It would be really easy to let it just fall behind – like a diet – so the focus of Inktober may be more important than the drawings themselves. Inktober is a challenge to not only commitment, but to imagination and dedication to meeting a goal. Harder than I thought it would be – but at least I have some time for commitment these days.
