The origins of Inktober, according to Jake Parker, the initiator are thus: "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."
So I did. In itself, whacking out thirty one drawings in a month is no big deal, but then there's all the other stuff that goes on too, like life. I found myself getting up at ridiculous hours to complete the InkTober drawing before being catapulted through the day.
Here is my complete collection of images, some are tiny, others are crazily self indulgent, indicative of my state of mind. On one occasion I even found I'd drawn one image on the back of another!
I'd like to include a few words about each piece, eventually. In the meantime, if you have any questions, get in touch.
