Inktober is a 31 days drawing challenge on instagram, hosted by illustrator and cartoonist Jake Parker. You will receive 31 art prompts and you try to draw something each day, with INK obviously. And during the month of October, also obviously. The rules are super simple:

“Inktober Rules”

  1. Make a drawing in ink
  2. Post it online
  3. Tag it with #inktober and #Inktober2017
  4. Repeat every day of October.

That is all!

Last two years I tried to join inktober, but I never manage to actually complete it. Last year my daughter Mathilde wanted to join me. And even though we only drew four prompts together, she loved it so very much. This year she asked me if we’d do it again. I felt like I did not keep my promise to her last year, so this time I really want to manage to do this, together with her.

I am going to post my inktober drawing each day and I will be using the hashtag #inktobertogether. Would you like to join us this October? And with whom are you going to Inktober together?

Would love to hear from you!

P.s. In this video I show you how I make a fun Jotter Journal with 32 pages:
