Inktober 2018

I’ve been participating in Inktober 2018. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a movement reportedly instituted by Jake Parker in 2009 where artists create one ink drawing a day, every day, for the month of October. You can read all about that here at Jake’s website.

This is my first year participating. I haven’t ever spent much time drawing in ink. Frankly, I’m not very good at it. I decided this was my year! As of October 12th, I’ve created something each day and posted it on my Instagram account, @thethinkersrock.

I have found it very challenging. I started out with some very simple doodles and have so far just been drawing simple objects, for the most part. I’ve toyed with the idea of adding color to some of them and decided to start working on that last night.

Check out the video below where I flip through my sketchbook at use color pencils to add color to some of my drawings.
