#inktober was created in 2009 by Mr. Jake Parker.
Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day for the entire month. I found out about it from Kim Rempel and she encouraged me to take part. I didn't take much persuading as I enjoy the freedom of a quick sketch, but am rarely disciplined enough to do it regularly.
Instead of posting one sketch every day, I decided to post seven sketches every week instead. Not sure which is the best way to do it really. What do you think? A post a day? Or a post a week?
Anyway, here are my sketches for week 1:
1. A cotton reel...
...Damned ellipses! Chuh!
2. The humble toothpaste tube...
...Must add to shopping list!
3. The Teddy Bear...
...Well, it would be all manner of wrong if I didn't include at least one bear!
4. Oh go on then...
...Make that two!
5. My shaving brush
...I use it to dust off my oil paintings between each layer. Jolly good job of those bristles, even if I do say so myself! ;0)
6. A few buttons...
...I seem to have mysteriously accumulated quite a few over the years, even though quite frankly I'd rather rip my own arm off and eat it, than actually sew one on!
7. A selection of clothes pegs...
...I have three varieties... two of which are next to useless!
So, are you taking part in the challenge?
If so, feel free to post a link to your own sketches on the comment roll below, so we can all pop by and have a look!
Happy sketching everyone!
