Flex your creative muscles in the Inktober drawing challenge

It's no secret that settling down to a creative activity is hard. First you've got to set aside the time, find a good place to work, then gather your materials. And sometimes that's before you even know what you're going to make. However when it comes to ink drawing, the whole process gets a helping hand over October.

Created back in 2009 by Jake Parker, Inktober is a popular way for ink artists to generate work and share it online. By challenging artists to create a new ink illustration every day throughout October with the help of a prompt word, the Inktober project aims to improve participant's skills and to develop good drawing habits.
