inktober 2021

Inktober has begun! Like many people, I cannot believe it is already October. With October comes a yearly renewed drive to attempt a month-long commitment like #Inktober. I came prepared this year and have come up with a simple, fun, enjoyable plan that so far I have successfully executed for 5 days. This bodes well, thus I am posting.

My big plan is to make an imaginary world map, something I have always wanted to do, but never tried. I started on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper and using the official Inktober prompts (swipe to see them), I will add a piece to the map somewhere. Some of the pieces are tiny, like already a couple are way too tiny, but they are totally there and they count, so maybe get a magnifying glass! I thought about making a big plan for the map itself, but honestly, half the fun is just adding to it each day and seeing what comes with the prompt and my daily creativity. It’s like a puzzle! Some days I will draw a lot, and some days I will just add a smidge. 5 days in and I love it so far. Approachable, unpredictable, intriguing, and finishable – which isn’t a word but feels like one that I need for daily projects. I’ve got other stuff in the mix of working, cause I am actually working every day thanks to in-person school! So other things will be posted but I’ll try to pop on for some inktobery updates now and then. Though I don’t plan to reveal the whole map until the end because I am mean like that, or smart perhaps. Hope you’ll follow along! Here we go…
