Every October illustrators and cartoonists all over the world have the opportunity to participate in the daily drawing event entitled Inktober. Created by the amazing artist, Jake Parker, the main rule is to create a drawing in ink on a regular basis in the month of October. You can post something online every day or a few times a week. The point is to push yourself, try something new and grow as an artist.
I have been participating for the past two years and find it to be a challenge but a great way for my drawing skills to improve. This year, without having regular Fried Chicken and Sushi comics to draw, I chose to try and post something every day. I never work much with animals so each week I'll focus on a different cartoon animal and illustrate it using the prompt list Jake Parker came up with. It's great because each day there's a word to use as inspiration for drawing ideas.
Here are all 7 of the first round of Inktober drawings done mainly with Pigma Micron pens, Sharpies and even an inexpensive Magic Drawing Pen I bought at a 100 Yen store in Japan. The theme revolves around a Ninja Space Bunny and his adventures. A silly concept but it was more fun to draw than I expected. Hope you enjoy them!
