So…the InkTober Challenge has been going on now for about 7 years now. I have "heard" of it but I didn't go and have a look until recently when my artist friend Susan Bronsak reminded me of it (and just in time too).
The challenge was invented by Jake Parker and he has a series of videos on line you can look at about it as well as some nice posts about his favorite pens. He is basically a cartoon artist and quite professional. The challenge which will start this Saturday can be connected using Twitter. (the hashtags are listed below the calendar.) But since I do not HAVE a Twitter account, that won't be possible for me. So this will be more of a personal journey. If any of you out there are participating you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can find your blog and we can share our work!
Each day has a theme and the only rule is that you use ink. You can pencil sketch first if you want to. Susan and I did Brenda Swenson's 75 day ink sketch challenge 5 years ago. So this is a much smaller version!!! And I plan to use the daily themes on a very loose basis. I will be "on the road" traveling through much of it.
I have a problem posting from my iPad so you won't see the results from Oct 11-23. But I will post them before and after that.
