A Non-Artist’s First Inktober: 2018 Drawing Compilation

If by some chance you haven’t been introduced to Inktober as the images begin flowing all over social media each year, here’s the elevator pitch from the Inktober website:

“Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month… post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone. :)”

I genuinely don’t consider myself much of an artist, however there’s a large part of me that always wanted to be a cartoonist. So I found myself, without really planning to, jumping in spur of the moment this year.

Overall it was pretty fun and yesterday (the first day of November) I felt itchy to draw something after thirty one days of doing so, and somewhat incomplete that I hadn’t.

I’ve also gained a greater apprecation for creators who have to create constant output… there were days when, even though it was fun, I had a hard time thinking something up. There were also a couple of instances where just due to life I didn’t have time and ended up drawing two sketches the next day to make up.

So here are my 31 drawings. I should note that the last few drawings were done on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (I recently upgraded my phone) which occurred to me later was probably cheating since it’s not actually ink and I can undo, redo, use layers, etc. 

I followed the “prompt” Inktober method where you use a list of prompt words for a drawing theme for each day.

(Again, please remember I don’t actually consider myself an artist so have mercy on a poor geek who is maybe, hopefully?, a cartoonist is a parallel dimension!)
