It’s October and you know what that means? It’s also INKTOBER! This month-long art challenge was started in 2009 by illustrator, Jake Parker, as a daily challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. Since then, artists and yes, even those of us who claim “but I can’t draw,” have risen to the challenge of illustrating one drawing per day throughout the month of October. Inktober provides the drawing prompts and you? Well, you draw. Use the official Inktober prompts, search social media for numerous alternative lists (tip: search the keywords “inktober prompts” on Instagram), or make your own list. Are you ready to meet the challenge? Get ready for tomorrow!
