My name is Vanessa, and I’m a self-taught illustrator from the US (and China, and Germany, and, well, all over the place really!). I currently live in Lithuania with my husband and a plant called Spikey (which isn’t actually spikey at all…don’t ask).

I’m hopping mad about bunnies, so when I heard about Inktober, an awesome art challenge where thousands of people around the world spend the month of October making a new ink drawing every day, I already knew exactly what I wanted to draw for it! But shortly before the challenge began, I learned during a late-night trip to the hospital that I had a serious repetitive strain injury in my drawing hand. I'd literally painted myself into a plaster cast!

Still, unable to sit on the sidelines while Inktober continued without me, I cautiously embarked upon the challenge regardless. It wasn't easy, and it probably wasn't smart. I even had to take a break in the middle to rest my hand, but I finally got there in the end! I hope you like the results of my first Inktober, and if you'd like to see more of my work, then feel free to follow me @hoppingmadproductions on Instagram and Facebook!

I should look at this every night before I sleep - feeling the same like Bunny and Panda. They have a friend here in Beijing feeling the same. So relaxed to look at this post! Great job VANESSA.
