This gallery represents my 2018 participation in my first-ever INKTOBER CHALLENGE which provides daily prompts for artists to create an original drawing in ink every day for the entire month of October.

I've never done a challenge like this and surprised myself by completing the entire month without ever missing or skipping a day!  The challenge to myself was to always try to give the prompt a surprise twist of some kind, whether by focusing on a more unusual use of the word or by digging up some obscure character.  Sometimes it was a providential prompt that gave me an excuse for drawing something I've had an itch to do for awhile.  Most of the drawings took about an hour or two.  Some took much longer.  I also experimented with techniques to keep it interesting.  The most common tool I utilized was my Copic sketch marker with the brush tip.   I played with cross-hatching, stippling, and even gray wash with my Copic sketch marker set.  I never planned ahead, but sat down, looked at the prompt, and got to work and my artistic choices were made in the moment.

I had fun and I hope you enjoy viewing my art!
