Inktober Challenge

Below is a blog post that a very talented artist and teacher, Jake Parker, made recently about an invitation to take part in Inktober. I have followed his work for a couple years now and have always enjoyed his updates this time of year.  So this year i am taking part in the festivities and it should be an  inktastic experience!  Keep an eye on my sketchblog featured on the homepage for daily updates!

*Tap *tap *tap, is this thing on? Do people still follow this blog? I’ve been so active on social media that I’ve all but abandoned the blog. Seems sad, but that’s evolution, right? Let me know if you think I should keep the blog up or give it an honorable death.

In other news INKtober starts TOMORROW!

Thirty-one days, thirty-one ink drawings.

Are you ready?!

INKtober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it on tumblr (or Instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)

3) Hashtag it with #inktober

4) Repeat (you can do it daily, like me, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.)

That’s it!
