Inktober 2018: Recap of Week 1

I’ve gotten a few questions about what Inktober is, so I thought I would take a second to explain more about it and share the first week of drawings. 

Inktober is a drawing challenge created by artist Jake Parker which encourages artists to create a drawing each day with ink based on a list of daily prompts.  The challenge lasts all 31 days of October and happens each year at this time.  You can go here for the official rules and prompt list.

Usually I find out about the challenge mid-way through, so I’m excited to be ready ahead of time for this year and be able to participate in the whole challenge.  

Here are my drawing for the first week of the challenge!
