So, I know I’m getting a bit of a late start here, but it’s October, which means that it’s time for #inktober. And I want you to participate.
What is #inktober?
#inktober is a challenge that artists (and non-artists) all over the world take to improve their ink drawing habits. All you have to do is pick up a pen and draw something once a day, every other day or once a week.
You don’t have to be an artist. The drawing doesn’t even have to be good! It just has to be with ink.
How do you participate?
Take a picture of your drawing and post it to social media with the #inktober hashtag. Easy peasy.
People will be searching for that hashtag all month long. It allows them to see what other people are drawing. Not to mention that there is awesome community around it.
Take the challenge with me!
I’m always game for something that will improve my creative skills and it wouldn’t hurt you to do the same. There are plenty of reasons to draw, so grab a pen and show me what you can do 🙂
Halloween-inspired drawings are always appreciated, but not necessary. You can draw whatever you like.
Where did the #inktober challenge come from?
The challenge was created in 2009 by Jake Parker. He started InkTober as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor. You can read more about it here.
