IInktober is almost half way through and I have been going a pretty good job of keeping up with the challenge this year. I have been committed to completing a fully inked image each day complete with background this time. I have also stuck to a theme this time. This is my third year to participate in Jake Parker's challenge of one inked drawing a day for the month of October.
Some may be wondering about the missing drawings. I have skipped two days purposefully this month because of a personal challenge I have pursued this entire year of not doing any art or art career related activities on Sundays. If I feel like it I may catch up during the month but more likely I will simply spend an extra five days of November finishing the 31 drawing project.
Here are a couple others from this month so far-
I have had to take a break from art from the beginning of the school year up until the Inktober challenge began. The children's book is at a great point right now but is put on hold while I focus on other things- possibly until the holiday season and first half our school year is done. Inktober has been a fun reminder of my growth with drawing skill since last year. The difference in what I am able to accomplish (in a hurry) since then and even more so- the first year I did the challenge has been an encouragement. I can definitely say that things in the house have gotten just a little bit more out of hand than they were before because I have often foregone the usual cleaning schedule in order to fit in more drawing time. As a matter of fact I am already in a crunch to start and finish one this evening. Thanks for reading.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
