Can you believe Inktober is 2/3rds done already? I can't. I've checked in with a few of our illustrators to find out how many times they've done Inktober & if their approach is different this year then it has been in the past.

This is my first year doing Inktober, though I’ve often thought of doing it!


Alice Carter

This is my first time participating in Inktober!
My approach is to have fun, play around with some different techniques
and get the creative juices flowing. I am using the official prompt
list as I have always enjoyed the challenge of coming up with an
original visual solution for a given concept. I usually do my Inktober
piece as a morning warm up or a mid day break from other projects. It
is inspiring to think about all the people around the world choosing
to challenge themselves creatively this month!

This is my first time with Inktober. I had never heard of it before.


Marla Lesage

This is my 2nd time participating in Inktober. Last year I wanted to try using a dip pen and work on pattern making. My approach has always been very relaxed so I don't mind missing a few days here and there. This year my main goal is to get comfortable with my brush pens & hopefully complete a few illustration ideas I've been sitting on for a while.

 I can’t recall how many times I’ve participated in Inktober …
This year I am focusing on developing a story idea whereas other years I’d just draw with a loose theme  - like the year I combined Inktober and Movember and gave everything I drew moustaches.
