In 2009, illustrator Jake Parker created a challenge for himself for the month of October: draw a work of art in ink each day, and share it with the world online. This challenge has come to be called “inktober”, and now thousands of artists take part every year!
Will you be participating? Even if you missed the start of the month, it’s never too late to begin! Draw something (even just a simple doodle) every day this month and see where your imagination takes you. Post it on social media with the hashtag #Inktober (and, of course, #SayYestoArtSTL), and we’ll be sure to follow along! Need some inspiration? See the list here for a daily prompt!
Want to use Inktober as an excuse to stock up on some new ink pens?! You know where to look … 😉
