Every October artists around the world participate in inktober. Started by Jake Parker a few years back, inktober is a challenge to post one ink drawing on instagram with the inktober hashtag.
I participated this year, and followed Jake's prompt list for each day of October.
That first set was done in ink, mostly from a Lammy pen. I focused on the bat, skeleton and cat as I way to draw more animals as I almost always do people or architecture.
For this next set I began icorporating stamp texture with inkpads. Something that always seemed like a fun way to draw but that I had never actually experimented with.
During a few days of traveling I went back to solely ink and pen with my set of Halloween characters.
Once home I continued my exploration with the inkpad. I am really pleased with how they had come out. Part of the joy of this inktober for me was letting myself go off model an to expriment with new mediums. I know I will be incorporating this style in to more of my art moving forward.
Happy Halloween everyone!
