Along with the thrill and chills of Halloween season, October also brings #inkober, a drawing challenge centered on producing pen and ink drawings each day, You can find hundreds of delightful drawings by following along with the hashtag on Twitter, and some of them have a distinctly spooky feeling. You can also learn more about the process – and get some inspiration – on the Inktober webpage, which is maintained by the inventor, Jake Parker.
Here’s a sampling – literally you can do this all day and we have 25 days to go. When you are feeling bad about the worl just hit Inktober and enjoy art for a while.
