Inktober 2016 Part 1

Inktober is a thing, in October, started by Jake Parker back in 2009. It has grown over the years but the core concept is to complete and share one ink drawing per day for the entire month. I’ll skip the detailed history and origins and leave it to you to visit the Inktober Web site for yourself as he covers it pretty well there on his site.

So, I decided to participate this year… and I have been dutifully completing at least one new drawing per day since the beginning of the month. With the exception of that week where I was without Internet access, I have been sharing my creations every day, as I complete them, on Facebook so please check me out there to see what I’m drawing new each day!

My original plan was to make a weekly post here on the blog, and collect the previous week’s worth of dailies so that I didn’t interrupt my comic strip during the week. My Internet outage killed that plan as it spanned more than a week’s duration and killed what would have been my first two weekly update segments… but finally, I’m going to start catching up today.

I decided to go small, and every drawing for Week One is a 2.5 x 3.5 inch personal sketch card sized illustration.

Inktober 2016 Week One:

sk21-woman-faceWoman Face

sk22-black-catBlack Cat

sk23-spongebob-squarepantsSpongebob Squarepants

sk24-flashFlash

sk25-green-arrowGreen Arrow

sk26-spider-manSpider-Man

It’s easy to pick my personal favorite from the first week… Spongebob Squarepants! After that I probably like my Spider-Man card second best. Oh, and if you think that black cat looks super creepy, it might be because I gave it intentionally incorrect human-looking eyes just to be weird. 🙂

Please let me know what you think and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

  3. I learned that Inktober was a thing this year, and now there are two months in a row where I have to feel guilty for not participating in a thing I really should be participating in. (Also November because NaNoWriMo).

    I agree that your Spongebob and Spiderman are particularly good.

    1. Don’t feel guilty… the first time I took notice of Inktober was last year but I didn’t do it… this year I told myself I ought to do it, and so far I’ve been sticking with it. I’m proud of being able to do it this year after passing last year.
