What You Didn’t Know About The Month Of October And How It Will Change Your Life

by Deya Banerjee 300 views0


October seems to be all about Halloween and Fall trends, but have you heard about the artsy side of it?

31 days, 31 drawings. That’s the challenge thousands of artists all over the world take up every October. It started out as a personal challenge by artist Jake Parker to improve his drawing skills in 2009 and has now become an initiative that artists all over the world take up every October (or Inktober).

It sounds pretty simple since all you have to do is one ink drawing per day. However, it really challenges your creative side and encourages you to outdo yourself. The #inktober is a trending hashtag through all social media platforms, especially Instagram, where artists can discover and get inspiration from others in their community.

Whether you are Da Vinci’s apprentice, a struggling artist or someone who can’t even hold a paintbrush, Inktober is a time to put those differences aside and grow as an artist and as a person. Art has a way of opening us up to new experiences that we just can’t fathom and Inktober will be the life changing experience you need.

Here are some Instagram artists whose Inktober work will have you feeling all kinds of emotions. Follow and like to show your support and keep inspiring them to do what they do.
