What is InkTober your ask…

This October was the first time that I participated in the InkTober Challenge. For those of you not familiar with the challenge, it was originally created by Illustrator Jake Parker – a very talented illustrator and teacher. The challenge was to create an ink illustration every day in the month of October based on a single word prompt. You know me, I love a good challenge, and this was right up my alley. Even though I do a lot of work digitally, I was originally trained in traditional mediums. It felt great getting back to pen and paper again. You can see my whole 31 days below. I’m planning on taking some of these characters and expanding them out to finished pieces of art and possibly new book characters.

If you want a creative challenge or want to expand your craft, you can take online classes at www.SVSlearn.com from Jake and his partners Will Terry and Lee White. I highly recommend this site – I’ve learned a lot from them. So, it is true that you can teach an old dog new tricks 😉 .
