Have you heard of the global drawing exercise called “Inktober?” This is an annual event where established and aspiring artists from around the world create an ink drawing every day of October (31 days / 31 drawings). The drawings do not need to be polished, and most of mine end up being like field sketches. It is a good excuse to actually sit down and draw something at least once a day and hopefully develop a good habit. Serious Inktober enthusiasts follow pre-established prompts for their drawings (see inktober.com), but not me. I usually look for something to draw in the evening after dinner, or find something in my imagination… it is a great excuse to relax with pen in hand. If you want to see my full-scale drawings with captions, you are welcome to visit (and/or “follow”) my art blog at: dbsuchart.wordpress.com or Instagram @dbsuch.
