On a picturesque fall day, Michele Miguel (top) and Abigail Hontiveros (left) were tucked away under a bright red tent on Douglas Crescent inking their creative characters on paper.
The illustrators/ best friends were part of the Downtown Langley Art Crawl, which took place Oct. 3 and 4. It was the first event of its kind in the downtown core to promote local artists and businesses.
Hontiveros, a comic book artist, spent the weekend working on pieces for the international event, Inktober.
During the month of October, artists around the world are challenged to produce one ink drawing per day for 31 days, then post them on social media with the hashtag #inktober.
Hontiveros has already posted several on her Instagram account “thesunnygo.”
She is also working on the new project, Bones of the Coast, a comic book series on horror stories in B.C.
Featuring B.C. artists and stories, the anthology will be published in the spring by non-profit comics company Cloudscape.
Miguel recently finished her grad portfolio at Emily Carr University, and had several pieces on display at the Art Crawl.
