Inktober: My Personal Goal of 30 Drawings this October

Inktober is New to Me, but I love the Idea!

Inktober. I had never heard of it before, but this year I stumbled upon a post from a friend on Instagram with the hashtags #inktober and #inktober2016. The image was a particularly wicked looking pumpkin drawn in ink and at that point I knew I would be joining in. So far, we’re only three days into October but I’m really excited to share my drawings with everyone.

I hope everyone enjoys their #Inktober and without further adieu, here are my illustrations! Look for daily updates as the month goes on!
