Inktober has rolled around again! If you haven’t heard of it before, Inktober is a challenge to draw something every day for the month of October, hence INKtober. It was started by Jake Parker in 2009 as a personal challenge to help improve his skills, but soon caught on, and now thousands of people take part each year. It’s the same idea as my monthly Instagram projects where I try to draw something each day with a particular theme. I haven’t participated before because I had my own stuff going on, but I’ve committed this year and am amped!
Official Inktober rules are:
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it online
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016
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.
See, you don’t even have to do every day if you feel you can’t, just join in, no excuses! And no, it’s not too late. Start where you are, do what you can, and have fun 🙂 And don’t forget to follow along with me on my Instagram! And if you’d like more reasons to start a daily or weekly project, read this post I wrote a while back to encourage you 🙂
