Hello Inktober…October!

Here in the islands summer is not yet giving in to a change of season except for the occasional breeze that brushes past and whispers of cooler nights to come.

When the humidity gets too high, the drying time with my watercolors becomes a sort of guessing game, giving me a good excuse to play with pen and ink instead, and just in time to join in the fun with Inktober started by Mr. Jake Parker (@inktober and @jakeparker).  The idea is to do an ink drawing a day for the 31 days of October, and posting them to Instagram with #inktober and #inktober2017.  There is also an official Inktober prompt list for anyone wanting drawing ideas.

If ever there was a fun way to get back into using the sketchbook on a daily basis this is it.  All one needs is ink and something to draw on.  And with so many other prompts and challenges floating around on Instagram for instance, (including Charlie’s World Watercolor Group’s prompt ideas),  it can feel like being a kid in a candy store of creative inspiration and fun.

To start off October I pulled ideas from a couple challenges and prompt lists and just let imagination wander.  The first one was done in my bullet journal, (part planner, holder of ideas, and playground for doodles).

The second was in a new and inexpensive sketchbook with the hope to get at least the first few pages inked so the rest of the scary blank white pages are not so scary anymore.
