Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his 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.

I have participated in Inktober for the past five¬†years. When I started I didn’t have a lot of experience with pen and ink. I have since grown to love this medium and look forward to the Inktober “marathon” challenge every year. It stretches my creativity and allows me to easily engage in a broader artistic community. Below¬†are links to my drawing recaps on my blog.
