Hi friends old and new!
WOW. Blogging things has picked up since organising my life. I DO hope my shares are colourful enough for you. ^^
People love October because of Halloween, pumpkin spice lattes and cute scary things.
Me?! I love October for #INKtober, an art initiative created by illustrator, Mr. Jake Parker back in 2009.
I started following #INKtober and taking it seriously about two years ago during my three month stay in Japan.
I enjoyed it so much that I started using #INKtober not only as a prompt for dedicated ink practice, but also a signifying transition for shifting my focus to traditional art but but staying sharp.
So I decided that #INKtober will be one of my serious goals this month. Here I’ll tell you what #INKtober is, how you can join in the fun, and share my week one round-up.
✨What is #INKtober?!
31 Days, 31 Drawings
From the Site: Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.
I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
I never have success following the prompt list, btw >.< I attribute it to my wandering mind and creative A.D.D. But some of my own cued ideas may fall into some of the days. We’ll see! And if not … I can try again next year. No judgement, no heat! 🙏
✨#INKtober Week One Round-Up
I’m still editing, processing and cue’ing videos. What a process! Please bear with me. I’m determined to find my voice for sharing art. But until then here’s a recap of my week of inking. ^^
It’s not too late to join the INKtober fun.
Just draw and hashtag #INKtober on any social media platform to share.
