VIDEO: Inktober – How To Keep Going

Day 11 ink circles doodle in yellow, red and orange for Inktober, by Kim Dellow


So I wasn’t going to join in with Inktober this year. I didn’t think I would be able to fit it in. But I changed my mind at the very last minute, I mean literally on the day it started, October 1st! And now we are almost, not quite, but pretty close to halfway through the month. So how are you getting on with it? Are you keeping up? If you are struggling or maybe haven’t started yet then I can help!

In my video today I am sharing how I am keeping up with the daily drawing and posting over on Instagram. Hopefully it will help you too. But it is not just for Inktober, you can take on these tips for any of the art challenges and habits you want to form. So today’s video is a mix of some art, a pep talk, some tips and hacks and a sketchbook tour! The lot!

If you are looking for more on Inktober and the prompt’s you can find them on Jake Parker’s Inktober website.
