I was aware of “Inktober” which is a daily challenge to draw with ink and post drawings online. A different word is given as a daily prompt. I participated this year, with a small online community and just finished. I’m posting some of my favorites below! You’re welcome to guess which prompt goes with which drawing.




I had a great class where the assignment was basically to draw something, then keep adding changes to the drawing that derailed it, wrecked it, changed it completely. It broke all these old ideas:  that things have to be planned, that things have to be perfect, that if it’s not working then throw it out. The challenge was to stay curious about the changes and be brave! Erasers work great.
