I have done the Inktober challenge for three or four years now and loved doing it. I enjoyed it as a daily practice and it helped me to develop style and technique with various ink media. Most of all it disproved my belief that I couldn’t begin to think of a story when I found my characters Cissie and Bea – and last year, Biskit and Mavis. And there’s the value of the Inktober community on social media which brings the opportunity to see so much of other people’s work .
But this year I have decided not to take up the Inktober challenge. Instead I have decided to devote time each day to getting to grips with stopmotion animation again.
Of course … this might mean the occasional drawing crops up – and if it fits the daily prompt … Well it might just appear here in that capacity!
Meanwhile, for those who haven’t seen this year’s prompts yet, here is the official list. Good luck and Happy Inking.
