Inktober 2016 is Here!

It’s that time of year again! Inktober 2016 is a little over a week in. You still have time to join and challenge yourself to create more. Maybe Inktober 2016 will be the creative jumpstart you need. If you’re looking for inspiration check out the official prompt list for you to follow. You can always pick a prompt list of your own. Just have fun and create art!


Take a look at how Jake Parker has been inspired by these prompts so far:

Inktober Day 1: FAST – Before he ever met Sparrow, before he lived in the woods, and before he fell from the sky, Little Bot worked day and night on a skyship. Sometimes he’d get startled by the screaming engine of a passing hornet-skiff and wondered how anything could move so fast. – My new book Little Bot and Sparrow is out now! Available on Amazon and most bookstores. Doing a book signing today at @kingsenglishbookshop in Salt Lake at 11am. – #inktober #inking #drawing #ink #drawingchallenge #inktober2016 #sketchbook #illustration #artistsoninstagram #artists #artnews #drawers #littlebotandsparrow #provo #saltlake #sketchbook #drawing #inking #robot #sparrow #kidlit #kidlitart #childrensbooks #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #picturebooks #publishing #books #bookish #bookstagram Pens and paper I’m using + more of my tools: @jakeparkertools
