Did you enjoy Inktober? Perhaps you joined in over on instagram or just enjoyed watching the art that was being produced by your favourite artist day after day through October? As many of you know I joined in too, in my small way, with this worldwide challenge started by Jake Parker and shared a daily ink sketch over on instagram. I wasn’t sure if I was going to manage to keep going the whole month because, well it is hard isn’t it?
So it was a surprise to me to get to the end of October without missing a day and well, yes it wasn’t like I was sharing some of the more complex inking that many of the amazing artist do but I was still pleased with what I accomplished. So today, as requested by you guys, I have a tour video of my Inktober 2017 sketchbook with all the good days and bad days and the scribbles in between!
Scroll down for everything I used over the month and for my Inktober 2017 learning points too!

Some of my learning points from Inktober?
- Well I definitely see some styles in my work coming through that I return to again and again.
- Keeping going and posting is better than aiming for perfection, but this is a hard balance as you still have to remember that it represents you and maybe the only thing people see of your work before deciding if they want to see more or move on.
- What I think will be popular on Instagram is totally different to what actually is popular on Instagram ?
