i first started hearing about Inktober a few years ago from the awesome Skottie Young, when i bought one of his digital books, The Adventures of Bernard the World Destroyer, that contained 31 inked pieces of art that combined to tell a short story. apparently, Inktober was started by a guy named Jake Parker, an illustrator and comic book artist who has worked for lots of major companies and movies, such as Horton Hears a Who, Rio, and Epic. the rules are pretty simple – for the entire month of October, produce some drawings at a regular and consistent pace (i.e. everyday, every other day, every 5th day, etc.). that’s it.
so, this year, my annual art jamm week coincided with October 1st. thus, i decided to participate. below, are my Inktober pieces for days 1 to 5. enjoy, and come back to see how the rest of the month goes!
