Inktober 2019 Kickoff

Previous drawing for Inktober 2018

It’s October, and that means all things spooky! But for artists, it also means Inktober, a month-long challenge to make art every day. While it began as a challenge to make ink drawings using a single prompt list, the challenge took on extra life when artists added more mediums and prompt lists. Nowadays, there’s an October challenge for everyone, but we all call it Inktober.

I completed the Inktober challenge For the last two years and it left me inspired every time. I was going through major depression this time last year, and the challenge helped me focus on my art.

Last year, I posted weekly highlights detailing what I made for each day, what I liked or disliked about it, and which one I liked most. I’m going to continue that pattern this year. If you’re thinking of following the Inktober prompt list too, you can find the official one here. I’m mostly following Camilla d’Errico’s Drawlloween prompt sheet with this year, which you can find here.

To prepare, I’ve been testing my inks for high flow, water solubility, and waterproofing for layering watercolors afterward. I have a video coming soon on that topic.
