#Inktober: Better Than Pumpkin Spice Everything
It’s October and while last month delivered amazing art via the #DrawingWhileBlack hashtag, October brings us the promise of #Inktober. This is a month filled with ink drawings from artists in every part of the globe. Now is the time you should be checking Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and even Pinterest for new and wonderful art daily. Find new artists to follow and discover drawings and illustrations that inspire.
Inktober was created by Jake Parker in 2009 as a way to improve inking skills and drawing habits. It has since grown into a larger movement. If you want to participate in Inktober you can check out the prompt list to get started or if you run out of ideas click here
Anyone can participate, all you need to do is create an ink drawing, post it online with the #Inktober hashtag, and repeat every day during the month of October. Even if drawing is not your thing, I urge you to explore the tag and find some amazing art! Check out two of my favorite artists and a couple new discoveries below. However, there can always be more! Send your recommendations for good Inktober art to my Twitter and share with The Nerd Element your new discoveries.
