October is here, and with it comes one of the holiest months on the cartoonist calendar: Inktober.
What is Inktober?
Inktober is a month-long drawing challenge. You create 31 “ink” drawings in 31 days. It may sound easy, but trust me, it will test your limits. I’ve attempted it twice in the past, and only completed once. The official rules say to share the drawing on social media with the #inktober and #inktober2017 tags. But, in the past I tried to post them to my blog(s) instead, and that’s where I got burned out. And fast.
Watch My Inktober Video
For the first day of Inktober, I livestreamed myself inking and painting my first drawing. Watch my Facebook Live video below.
Here the link for the video on Facebook if the embed doesn’t work for you.
