Here are my Inktober drawings for 2020:
What is inktober? It’s a drawing challenge. There are prompts each day in October. The challenge I set myself is to do a drawing for each prompt, in ink, square. You can see the prompts here and on Inktober.com
Why do I do it? It’s different from my “normal” work. My urban sketches and other art generally take several hours, and are from life (non-fiction).
I do the inktober drawings quickly, in less than half an hour normally, and from imagination (fiction). Inktober jolts me into other worlds. It’s also a challenge, and enjoyable. I also like to see what other people draw, from the same prompt. The drawings are posted on instagram with the tag #inktober2020.
I did it last year for the first time. It surprises me that I can do it.

Hi Jane, I love these October sketches….. it’s a real skill to create something quick and spontaneously with just a one word prompt. Wonderful 🙂

Thank you Paul! Once I realised “it’s fiction, I can make it up!” the process became a lot easier. There’s also something therapeutic and mesmeric about doing all that cross-hatching, or stippling. The one called “Rip” was particularly meditative. I’m so glad you enjoyed the results. Thanks for commenting.
