INKtober is an illustration challenge run in October each year. This is the first year I have participated and with great result. It has been a light-hearted and fun way to get more quick sketching done. I have not only gained more courage working directly in ink (without penciling in) but also gained a heap of motifs for design work and patterns. I am falling in love with ink more and more every day and have continued to ink most days since.
