Jake Parker started the Inktober Initiative in 2009 to, as he puts it, “improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.” Its grown into a world-spanning event of thousands of participating artists. This year I took on the challenge myself to produce one inked drawing everyday of October and I think I did pretty well.
I posted the drawings on my Instagram account following the prompts on the Inktober website. I fell behind here and there due to the inexorable march of life but caught up to finish on time. I have to admit, while I’m pleased with producing something everyday, I’m not entirely proud of all I produced. Instagram responded well, though, and I picked up some followers thanks to Inktober. I’d like to keep the momentum going, though maybe not at the same pace.
So, let me thank Jake Parker for creating awesome experience of Inktober and to all of you that followed and encouraged me along the way.
