October is quickly approaching, which means it’s almost time to begin Inktober 2018. Inktober was originally started by Jake Parker in 2009, and has gained more and more participants each year. This is when people all over the world ink one drawing each day in October to a daily theme. Most people use paper and ink, but if you’re like me and tend not to carry around pens, ink, brushes, and paper, you can also participate digitally, which is what I did for last year’s challenge.
Above are some of the drawings I did last year while beta-testing a new version of Procreate for iOS. In case you couldn’t tell, I like to draw a lot of nostalgic-based artwork. You can check out some of the retro t-shirts I’ve made at my home page if you’re also into that sort of thing.
This year, I’ll probably alternate between Procreate and Affinity Designer for iOS since I always have my iPad Pro on me.
When you complete your daily drawing, be sure to tag it on social media using #inktober and #inktober2018 so everyone can check out each other’s work. There are a lot of very impressive pieces done each year, which can be pretty inspiring to see.
Let me know if you’ll be participating this year!
