The InkTober Initiative
31 Days 31 Drawings
Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.
I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)
3) Hashtag it with #inktober
Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.
That's it! Now go make something beautiful.

Every year I post a list of the best pens to use for Inktober. These are pens I've used and trust to get the job done. I'll be posting the 2016 pen list in September.
Learn How To Ink
I created a class for SVSlearn.com on how to ink. This class is over 2 hours of inking instruction. Filled with exercises, techniques and tips, both beginners and intermediate drawers will learn how to improve their inking game and level up.
Includes a PDF of high resolution scans of my drawings to practice inking over. Check it out:
