Inktober 2019

We are taking on the challenge! Follow our Instagram @thepaintspot to see all the drawings and highlighted materials.

Inktober rules:
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want)
2) Post it*
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
4) Repeat

*Post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone. 

Inktober was created in 2009 by illustrator @jakeparker as a way to get better at inking. It’s since grown into a worldwide art event every October. It’s a month long celebration of drawing, creativity, and self-improvement.

2019 Official Prompts!

 

The prompt list is provided to spark your imagination. Its fun to see how different artists interpret the same word. But you do not have to use the prompts. If something else is inspiring you, let that fuel your creativity for inktober! You can modify the challenge to suit your needs and abilities.

If doing 31 drawings in a month isn’t realistic for your schedule, set a goal for 15 drawings in the month and do one every other day or just one each week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. Inktober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

Initially, the challenge of Inktober was focused on traditional inking. People who push themselves just outside their comfort zone get the most out of the challenge. Figure out what that is for you, set a goal, and work your hardest to reach it.

Use whatever ink tools you have available to you or pop by The Paint Spot to pick up an item or two. We are well-stocked in a variety of durable all-media sketchbooks. Our markers, inks, calligraphy, and fountain pen sections seem to be expanding every week.

Keep it simple and draw daily. Remember to use the hashtags #inktober #inktober2019 and give a shout out to the innovator @jakeparker!

Lastly, HAVE FUN!
