October is upon us once again so why not join in with the great art trend that is Inktober.

Inktober was started by Jake Parker in 2009 and has since evolved into a worldwide event for the art community, so let’s have some fun and get better with our inking!

Every year Jake puts out a prompt list of words that you can use to spur your imagination for your art.


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 #inktober2018

4) Repeat for every day of October

Keep going if you fall off a day, do let one break in a chain stop your progression and momentum as an artist

Have fun with it, art should never be a chore but as an opportunity to grow.

Here’s the prompt list for 2018:
