Inktober is an art challenge created by artist Jake Parker that focuses on improving inking skills. Anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing everyday in October and posts it online, using the hash tags #inktober and #inktober2018. The Inktober website has the rules, how to ink videos, and merchandise.
I am participating this year (and also did last year in 2017) to help develop my skills in drawing with ink. I am following the daily prompt words set for by Jake Parker. This is a great opportunity for me as an artist, and provides a sense of community online.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018
Feel free to participate anytime during October. You don’t have to follow the rules. As Jake says, “Now go make something beautiful.”
