Inktober 2018



I’m participating in #Inktober again this year! Not sure if I’ll be going the full month, but I plan to try it as of right now. (In case you don’t know, Inktober is where you make a new ink drawing/painting every day for the month of October)

I’ve attempted this challenge for the last two years now. 2016 embarrassingly ended up with a spotty 4 illustrations I won’t even show here, but last year went much better. In 2017, I managed 28 out of 31 days. I didn’t follow a particular prompt list, but I focused on one theme I struggled with every week.

Here are some of my favorites from last year:

2017 Improvement Prompts:

  1. Hands
  2. Scenery
  3. Animals
  4. Flowers

This year, I just want to have a fall/spooky/Halloween theme run through each piece. Each one predominantly black and white, with one colored point of focus. I always end up changing my mind, though, so we’ll see~



  • Bee Watercolor Paper
  • Speedball Super Black Ink
  • Dr. Ph. Martin’s Black Star Matte Black Ink
  • Winsor & Newton Colored Inks
  • Pentel Brush Pen
  • Dr. Ph. Martin’s Pen White & Iridescent Inks
  • Various paint brushes
  • Pen with Various nibs

I’ll make a post later which nibs and brushes I use the most. I’ll probably edit that into this post as well, in case you see this later.

Thanks for reading!
