Do you feel it? That chill in the air, the increasing crunchiness of leaves, summer daisies exchanged for fall mums and gourds? Oh yes, friends; the 31 days of Halloween are upon us! And you know what that means (besides Hocus Pocus movie nights): Inktober is BACK!
If you’ve never Inktobered before, a quick one-sentence background: it’s a yearly art challenge created by Jake Parker meant to get artists to draw one thing every day all through October. You can use a prompt list, do your own thing, or switch back and forth – the world is your sketchbook! (But not really, that sounds illegal and potentially frowned upon).
Need a little inspiration to kick you into creative shape? Here are a few pieces of art from the first couple days of Inktober 2017. Check them out, then be sure to leave your own Inktober pieces in the comments for a chance to be featured in our next art roundup post! Happy drawing!
