Well, Sketchtember is over; how did you get on? I think I did okay considering it was my first attempt. I only missed a few days due to illness, and most importantly I really enjoyed it. It brought back the childhood joy of mark making, something I feared four years of art college had destroyed.

So what now? Well, how about Inktober?

Inktober is another drawing challenge. The only difference from Sketchtember is that your drawings must be in ink. Here are the rules:

Inktober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it*

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. Inktober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.

*Post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone. 🙂

The official site has lots of advice on what to draw, how to draw, post etc.

Have fun!
