Inktober 2020

Tomorrow is the start of (r)Oc(k)tober, so that means a month of Inktober. On a whim, I decided to participate last year, just to see how it’d go. I didn’t follow any of the official daily prompts. Instead, I drew what I felt like. It quickly turned into a daily journal comic. That was nice. The pocket sketchbook that I used, a Rhodia, meant that I wasn’t going to draw big. Just one small panel. This was also nice, as I could draw quickly without getting hung up.

I completed the Inktober Challenge and then kept on drawing a daily journal comic. I kept it up pretty good through the end of 2019, and it’s been in fits and starts in 2020. But I promised that I wouldn’t beat myself up if I couldn’t adhere to a daily schedule–it was supposed to be fun.

So I’m going to take the plunge again, and make sure I draw something in my little Leuchtturm sketchbook every day for this month. I’ll probably share what I have as usual on my flickr and Instagram accounts, and check in here occasionally. So if you want to follow along as they happen, I encourage you to check either photostream. And maybe you’ll also participate?
