If you happened to be on Instagram last month you may have noticed a little thing called Inktober. At the beginning of the month daily prompts are released and the goal is to draw something each day based on the prompt. It’s great for getting into the habit of drawing daily andhaving to think conceptually. One of my favourite things was searching the hashtag and seeing the different interpretations. For me, I tried to make them fairly quick, 20-45min on each so that I could keep up. But I did fall off the wagon so a few prompts are combined into single pieces flatsheet or map style. I tried out some new tools- namely, using my calligraphy pen to illustrate. I discovered I really love drawing waves with it. I also used india ink on a brush for a couple and some new markers to throw a little colour in. All in all it’s definitely given me a push to start drawing for fun again and not just for work.
