best of the drawing of the day: bench

Back in September, I did a warm up to Inktober where I drew a drawing every day that had a piece of furniture in it.  “Bench” is one of my favorites.  The figure’s face, the inking style, and the big black umbrella recall the work of Edward Gorey, one of my favorite artists, though I would imagine Gorey’s rain would have been coming straight down.  The dog is not Gorey’s typical big black dog, but the Dog With Three Tails, a familiar folkloric figure (or Saint) found throughout the Knotted Rope.
