Inktober 2022 is in full swing! For those who aren’t aware of what exactly Inktober is, please check out their main site at https://inktober.com/ which helps explain it better and provides prompts. It’s a simple concept. Draw something in ink based on the days prompt, post it on social media with the hashtag #inktober and #inktober, then do it every single day in the month of October.

Sharing your artwork is always fun, and I love seeing people’s artwork as well! I’ve been posting videos of my live drawings on my tiktok as well as the still images on Instagram. For the past few years since I started Inktober, I’ve always gave myself 5-10 minutes to do the drawings. Why? Because I think it’s fun to just jot down a quick idea and see what sticks. Otherwise, doing a daily drawing would consume my world with all the stuff I have going on in my life.┬áIf you haven’t tried Inktober yet, don’t worry, there’s still time! Grab a pen or pencil and just draw based on the daily prompts! It doesn’t matter how good you are or if you think you’re terrible. I’m not the greatest, but I love drawing.inktober-day10-crabby-candle-illustration

This year I been focusing on a candle. That’s right, just a candle. Why? I don’t know, but I liked the idea of drawing wax and incorporating whatever the daily prompt is to it. It’s not top tier level, but I’m having fun with it. Here’s a small example of Day 10, Crabby. Which is a candle, but more in line with Mr. Krabs from Spongebob.
