Inktober (#1)

Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

This is Inktober. There are some really amazing artists who participate and over the past few years I’ve lamented that I didn’t participate, so this year I am, albeit, not with ink. Perhaps I’m cheating but I like to think I’m following the spirit of the challenge. I’m using one of my favorite tools/apps, Isometric, (sadly only for iPhone) but there is a desktop app that has similar capabilities called Hexels, that I might try to use later in the month. Jake Parker, who is the creator of Inktober, has put together a list of prompts for this year which I will be following.

Here’s my first post for the prompt “Swift”

Explain this to me

The Environmental Protection Agency is spending nearly $25,000 to construct a secure, soundproof communications booth in the office of Administrator Scott Pruitt

I have no clue why this is necessary. Further I struggle speculate what could be possibly so important that an EPA Chief must discuss privately.

I think this will make for an interesting reoccurring post, if only to see the timeline that it could create over a quarter or 6 month span.
