What is #INKtober?! + #INKtober Round-Up 1

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.

Leggo! ^^

✨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.

#INKtober2016 Prompt List

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! 🙏
