Artists Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. Now it has grown into a huge event with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year all around the globe. This online art event is a great way to challenge yourself, practise your inking skills and meeting other inspiring artists.
Will you join in this year?
Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing!
Meet Jake and let him talk you through Inktober in his own words.
There is no official location or convention for Inktober. Wherever you live and create is where Inktober is.
Inktober is every year in the month of October. Post your first Inktober drawing on October 1st and your last on October 31st by using #inktober and #inktober2021 if you want your art to be seen by everyone.
You can also partake in Inktober all year round with one drawing a week, every week.
