October Art Challenge

InkTober 2021

Members are invited to participate as many times as they like.

Inktober 2021 is an art challenge where you draw/paint every day  using some form of ink medium – ink pens, ink & brush, black biro, black textas, brushes, chinese brushes, sticks, pen/brushes, you can draw with pencil and then cover with ink pen, sketch with crayon then convert to digital ink drawing.  In fact, any type of implement to make a mark.

If you use calligraphy, typography, lettering, it’s OK to use it. Maybe you have a poem in mind.  The idea is to get creating. You can work from a photograph, magazine, real life, memory or from imagination.

Here is a prompt list to help spark your ideas. You can use this list or do your own thing.
