By Design – Inktober



If you’re not aware of Inktober, let me inform you! Inktober is a drawing/inking challenge where artists draw a piece of art using ink in some way every day of the month! Ink isn’t really my speciality, and I probably could have done Drawlloween (which is pencil drawings) instead, but what the hell, I decided to go full out of my comfort zone! Not to mention I picked up some pretty rad felt tip markers recently, and an ink pot that I haven’t actually opened yet (and a nib pen along with some brushes) so I’m ready for anything! If you’ve been following along on my Instagram or twitter, I’ve been posting my creations! (Mainly on Instagram) You can follow along at @bookwormbydesign if you’d like!

Ink isn’t my normal medium, so it’s fun to do something out of the box! Plus, I’ve been out of habit with drawing for a while, and it’s nice to get back into sketching a little every day!
