Happy Inktober!

My daughter Julia has always been a creative cat, and she’s been drawing for as long as I can remember. Between painting, pastels, and even doodles, she spends much of her time watching YouTube videos and otherwise improving her craft.

The Inktober challenge runs through the entire month of October. It was created to help budding artists improve their ink art, and every day has a prompt for the day’s topic.

Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Julia’s first three days are shown here. Day One’s prompt is “Fish,” which you can see above.

Day Two’s prompt was “Wisp,” (above) and we all had to look that one up.

Day Three’s prompt was “Bulky,” and I think this one was the funniest of the trio.

I’ll post the rest of the work throughout the next two weeks. Some of her stuff is truly amazing, especially when we get to “Blade” and “Slippery.”

  1. Ronni – Thank you. When my mother brought me to Bingo on Monday nights at the parish hall, I needed something to do for a few hours. All I did was draw, and while I was okay at it, Julia is amazing.

    MelP – I think Kevin would be really good if he took it seriously. Most of his drawings are funny, so he doesn’t get really down in the dirt with it. He did do some Inktober pics, and a few them are outstanding. I’ll eventually post some of them too.
