INKTOBER ALUMNI FOCUS: Davin, Sharon, Ben, Magen, Sam, Matt, Chris, Traci, Jen, Emily, Missy, Lauren

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.”
