First Week of Inktober 2015

Inktober 1, 2015 My first piece ever for Inktober. I didn't want to think too hard or draw too hard because I don't want to run the chance of getting an Art block.

Finally I decided it was time to participate in this year's Inktober. For those of you who don't know Inktober was created by Jake Parker in 2009 as a way for him to improve his inking skills, and since then lots of artists have been participating. 

Here are the rules taken from the event page on Facebook if you'd also like to participate.

InkTober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)

3) Hashtag it with #inktober

4) Repeat

Inktober 2, 2015 I love Rats and Jack o' Lanterns. I use to have pets rats growing up, and they were amazing friendly pets. And I can't think about October without thinking about Pumpkins and Jack o' Lanterns.

Some folks have come up with themes or things they'd like to specifically work on when doing these ink drawings. I've decided to just explore working with ink and making work that just comes to my head. Being so  busy lately, I don't get to draw for myself or things that amuse me. When I've done all 31 days then next year I'll plan some theme I'd like to work under. 

Inktober 3, 2015 I just let my hand take the wheel when inking this one. Pretty bizarre.

On Saturdays I'll post here all the ink drawings I've done during the week instead of one individual post per day. (Since I'm posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr daily)

If you're interested in participating do it!! You can still catch up!
