#Inktober Showcase

Inktober was started in 2009 and is still going strong today.  Mr Jake Parker, the creator of the project, has assigned very few rules Pick up a pen, draw, hashtag it #inktober, repeat. Anyone can take part and it seems like artists from all over the world do. I posted a picture and within 2 min 100 more pictures had been posted! The goal is to practice your drawing skills and develop the positive habit of doing it daily. Below are a few examples of my own work and a few from others within my surface pattern design community. Click on the pictures below for direct links to their Instagram accounts. Julie Hamilton for #inktober {artistically afflicted blog} Julie Hamilton[/caption] Playing with light and dark. Flower shapes, some seeds and pods and an owl for good measure. When in doubt stick a bird on it.
