In 2009, Jake Parker started an initiative called #Inktober to practice his inking skills. He created one drawing a day using any form of ink and posted it on his social networks. Since then, Inktober has evolved into a worldwide initiative where artists from all over the world cover our newsfeeds with all kinds of ink drawings.
For 31 days, art is spread across countries using the hashtag #Inktober and motivates artists to get back on track and improve their skills. Whether it’s a drawing a day, or every other day, October is Inktober month! With just 10 days left, it’s never too late to start. It’s also a great way to get recognized because anyone participating in the challenge worldwide checks the hashtag, too.
Here are some of the Egyptian artists participating in the Inktober initiative this year:
