Inktober 2019 – Week One
Day 1: Prompt “Ring”
This was inspired by a story told to scare kids for fun. It’s based on an older story entitled “The Thievish Sexton”
Long ago the beloved wife of a wealthy landowner passed away. She was buried with her precious jewelry. A gravedigger decided she didn’t need her jewels underground so he dug her up and tried to remove her rings. They wouldn’t budge so he cut off the finger. To his horror, the finger bled and the woman sat up, wide eyed and breathing. Thanks to the gravedigger’s greed, it was discovered she had been buried alive!
Technical notes: I realized that I actually did need to replenish my supplies instead of relying on pens and markers that I had not cracked open in two years.
