From BBC News:

The man behind the Inktober viral drawing challenge

“In 2009, Jake Parker wanted to improve his inking skills.

What started out as a challenge for himself turned into a global phenomenon in the artist community.

During the month of October, millions of people post their drawings under the #Inktober.”

We made our own inktober/drawlloween list at work to use on the week days. I’ll probably be doing random drawings on the weekend.

Day 21. Imagine that Sarah McLachlan song playing.

What’s Inktober?

From Jake Parker:

“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.”
