One ink drawing a day, October 2015. (I did miss a couple days, though!)
Please click on the thumbnail for the full image.
October 1st was a rainy day.
Oct 2 — I had a dinner date with my lovely friend, who also happens to be a Domme-in-training 🙂
Oct 3 – Met up for lunch with a sailor from the American base and he spoke so lovingly of his wife back home, so she became today’s subject. She’s got lovely piercings
Oct 4 — A dream “Blow it out!” the voice insisted. “Blow it out now!” “Please wait a little more,” I begged. “We’re all going to die here because of you.” I woke up in tears.
Oct 5 – Professional Dominatrix and friend who today listened to me laugh, gripe, and cry over a big serving of coffee~
Oct 6 — I have no qualms with singing audibly when I’m going fast on my bike. The most people will get is 2 seconds of bad voice combined with doppler effect. We’ll all live.
Oct 7 — Sometimes the wind just gets way too persistent in giving your neighbors a pantyshot that you just stop giving a shit. PS — I wish I actually had that much hair.
Oct 8 –Today was so uneventful that the only thing I could say about it is that the way I like my tea would make a Brit puke: weak Earl Grey whose flavor has been overpowered by too much non-dairy creamer.
Oct 9 — It’s been a year since I last paid my Auntie Mieko a visit. So I asked her if she’d like to hang out today and she took me for a drive at the beach in Kanagawa.
Oct 10 — Sometimes you get those kinds of messages.
Oct 11 — I’m so smooth. You all wish you were smooth like me. IT’S A CUTE TALL GUY IN A SUIT, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO. (spoiler alert, he’s actually not my type, but I recognize cute for cute)
Oct 12 — I always have trouble washing my face at night because I’m always afraid of what will be standing behind my reflection when I open my eyes.
Oct 14 — Who’s a good rabbit?
Oct 15 — Imee and I bought a cheesecake which was supposed to be for five people. Yeah, right. We plowed through that thing within the span of one Ladybaby song.
Oct 16 – We ate tempura today.
Oct 17 — Modeled for a friend’s kinbaku class. My suspension as best as I could remember it. The tie was a bit faulty in the arms and circulation immediately cut off on my right as soon as I was hoisted up, so they had to bring me down before we could snap a photo 😦 Oh well, next time.
Oct 18 – Some rabbits are easy to please. Simple treats are all you need. Maybe a handsome face helps, too.
Oct 20 – I’ve started becoming a regular at the public bathhouse. But seriously, 60°C (140°F) shouldn’t be humanly possible to bathe in. I don’t know how these old ladies do it. I’m constantly hoarding the cold water faucet (which is supposed to help you in, not nurture your very being the entire time you’re in the bath).
Oct 21 – Perhaps my mind was trying to be kind by letting me have a moment of profound happiness. What it failed to realize was that I would be twice as brokenhearted when I wake up and see that none of it was real, and will never be.
Oct 23 – I need to sleep with pillows on both sides of me. When I was young I used to imagine that an evil skeleton would take up that empty space on my bed so I had to cover it with a pillow. I’m no longer afraid of that skeleton but I still think about him sometimes.
Oct 24 – Two things. 1) The moon is almost full. We can clearly see the moonbunny now. 2) Ever since I learned the rhyme “Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight…” when I was a kid, no fail I would wish upon the first star I see every night. I did this until last year, when I moved closer to central Tokyo. Here, there are no stars to be seen. I have missed 365 wishes.
Oct 25 — You don’t understand. When I first got my bike last year, these senior citizens would pedal past me when going uphill.
Oct 26 — I didn’t expect to get angry.
Oct 28 — Orinoco Flow by Enya came up on my shuffle while biking to work today. When I was in elementary school, I was sleeping and this song was playing in the background, thus incorporating itself in my dream. So whenever I hear this song, I always think of the people in my dream who stood outside staring at the sky, waiting for the poison rain to come down upon them. Then one by one they collapsed slowly to the ground until everyone was dead. Another song that was a dream soundtrack is that “Hallelujah” choir song. Whenever I hear it I can see my older sister getting shot dead with a laser gun in our old living room.
Oct 30 — Hanging out with Halina, getting tipsy on wine, and learning how to make dumb insults in German.
Oct 31 – And finally, the last picture for inktober. It was the owner of that hat who most kept me encouraged to keep doing Inktober. They’ve also suggested that I continue it beyond October, which… Actually sounds rather fun. Though maybe not every day 🙂 Thanks to the other folks as well who enjoyed these drawings as I enjoyed making them!
