Like all artists I want to create, but sometimes struggle with the right inspiration on what to actually draw or paint or illustrate. At times so much so that I hate myself for not ‘just drawing something’. Then I feel even worse, of course, about myself.
In an effort to break this somewhat self-destructive cycle…
Those of you following my illustration/painting account on Instagram (OceandreamIllustration) know by now that Inktober 2018 is up and running full steam ahead.
Should there be anyone who doesn’t know: Inktober was started in 2009 by illustrator Jake Parker as a tool to practice ink drawings. Inktober has its own website, (Inktober), but really you can find lots and lots of awesome ink drawings all over social media. There is an official Inktober list with 31 prompts, but there’s also a ton of lists created by other artists around different topics and such. Oh, and by the way, there is not only Inktober, but also Drawtober (link), which is similar to Inktober, but ‘allows’ for any and all media and has also a list of prompts.
