Last fall I participated for the first time in #Inktober, an online drawing challenge in which people make and post daily ink drawings. Many of the drawings are in response to a list of prompts provided by Inktober creator Jake Parker.
It was an excellent challenge that functioned for me as a sort of motivation and accountability. Now I’m partnering with several artist friends to participate in the similarly structured #Sketchuary. We’ve generated our own prompts (shown here) and are encouraging people to join the challenge with non-drawing sketches like prototypes, rough drafts, and other forms.
If you’re at all inclined to participate in the challenge, please do! Whether you go the full 28 days, every-other day, weekly, or once, there’s something to be gained from this practice.
