Year of the Brushpen Sketching Life: 1-17/366

Happy New Year everyone!

This year, I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to getting better at using ink and brushpen.

So I challenged myself to draw at least one drawing from life per day this year and post it.  Now I have been drawing a lot more than one per day but posted here are ones that can also be found on my Instagram.

Stay tuned for more!

Ink Bender Anniversary

Today marks a year as the Ink Bender...

...this journey has always had its many lessons and challenges...downfalls and triumphs...

...yet ever since the reawakening of four years ago and the subsequent emergence of my new identity, I have not only strengthened my resolve and passion but I have also become more aware of my place in this world.

Forging a path forward, I aim not for fame nor validation from others, but rather to continue to learn, to create, and most importantly, to inspire.

As always, thank you to those who have been positive and supportive in my journey.


The Ink Bender, Kristoffer Tolentino
