Are you ready to take on the Inktober challenge? Here are the rules:
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it online (Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest, or just pin it on your wall.)
3) Hashtag it with #Inktober (Extra credit: Tag @ArtistsNetwork for your chance to win a package of drawing supplies!)
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. Whatever 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 off you’ll be.
That’s it! Now go make something beautiful. ~Jake
So I warned you…Ink-Tober was coming! Unfortunately I don't have an Instagram account myself. You I am just posting here. The downside is that I cannot see what others are creating! I may have to consider getting more techy! :-)
I wrote about Jake Parker who started this up about 7 years ago in a previous post. I think I mentioned he is a cartoonist. Imagine how interesting HIS posts will be! Mine are going to be simple. I'll follow the prompts if I can figure something out to go with the word. You can read more about him AND Ink-Tober here.
The word for the first day is "Fast" which has multiple meanings. Everything from "not eating" to "moving quickly" to edgier meanings about time…which can go fast or slow, of course. But I interpreted it to mean "how fast time can go". This is a sort of tribute to my friend Joanne who passed away just Thursday evening. How living looks like as goes into warp speed once you become aware of how finite it really is.
Here's my hubby's favorite garage sale find…an old clock… I drew it just in ink (no pencil) and so it is a little "wonky" as ink drawings sometimes are.
