Together with my wife Sanne we are participating with the cool internet art challenge called “Inktober“. I am trying to draw/sketch/paint each day from 1st October something out of Jake Parker’s Inktober Prompt List. And everyone can do and participate. Really. For more information, read the Inktober FAQ. I hope that I am going to post my drawings here on my blog. But you can follow my “art” on my instagram account: alexschnapper. 😉
What is Inktober?
Inktober is a month long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker that is focused on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits. Every day for the month of October anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing and posts it online. Remember to use the hashtags #inktober and #inktober2019 if you want your art to be seen by everyone.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it*
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
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. What ever 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.
That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.
*Post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone. 🙂
