Inktober ’17 Illustrations from Alexandra Macvean
Alexandra H. MacVean is a freelance illustrator based in Fort Collins, Colorado. She’s a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Women’s National Book Association, and the United States Board on Books for Young People. She’s also a three-time Barnes & Noble Artist of the Month and her designs and illustrated children’s books can be found at various bookstores, coffee shops, and online children’s magazines, both nationally and internationally – and more!
On why she took part in Inktober this year, Alexandra says:
“I had attempted to participate in Inktober a few years back but due to a terrible car accident I was in, it was simply too much for me to physically and emotionally keep up with. This year, my husband, who’s a full-time professional graphic designer (doing art on the side) had mentioned he’d read a recent article on Inktober and asked if I’d heard about it…and I said yes! We both knew of a fellow artist who has been using dip pens for quite some time who wrote a blog post on what materials she uses to draw and one section talked about dip pens – with her favorite being the Leonardt 256 Drawing Nib. After reading her post, I ventured out online to begin my own research as to who/where I could obtain my own drawing dip pens/nibs and landed on the Manuscript Pen Company website!”
