Hello all. Besides today being Halloween, today is the last day of Inktober. I’ve been doing my own thing with that challenge, not even calling it by the same name. I had the intent of making one journal comic a day for this month. The reality turned out different. I’ve missed about a week’s worth of comics, give or take.
This is okay. I told myself at the beginning of the month that I was okay with not drawing every day. And to be truthful, I wasn’t as into the Challenge this time around. Why is that? Well, there’s the whole brouhaha with the founder of Inktober that I went over here. That sapped a lot of enthusiasm from the get-go. But I think the bigger thing is that last year’s Inktober pushed me into the daily journal comic habit. Since I’ve already been doing that for a year, this time the challenge simply wasn’t as important.
I’ll still continue to draw my journal comics. I will be sloppy sometimes and skip days, possibly a week or two. But I should still be back at it at some point. This is because I like doing it, and don’t need a challenge to keep going. Doing things just for a Challenge can be fun, but it’s no guarantee that you’ll keep it up after the initial goal is met.
Enjoy the comics that I have drawn for the month!
