Inktober 2017 Recap

Posted on Nov 1, 2017

Below are my 2017 Inktober sketches in one combined image. This year, my approach was to pick a theme (“Monsters at Work”) and use an ink brush. The 33 images represent:

It was Inktober Eve and Little Scott delightfully dreamed of Monsters at Work. He dreamt about:

01: “Barbershop Quartet Soloist”
02: “Public Restroom Smell Tester”
03: “Mailbox Counselor”
04: “Swamp-Pool Scrubber”
05: “Rain Taste Reviewer”
06: “Pin Sharpness Inspector”
07: “Worm Cookie Baker”
08: “Worm Cookie Eater”
09: “Leaf Pile Sculptor”
10: “Lion Walker”
11: “Bubblewrap Popping Listener”
12: “Kite Motion Analyst”
13: “Royal Meatball Delivery Specialist”
14: “Sr. Toothbrush Recovery Manager”
15: “Stick Holding Trainer”
16: “Chief Something Officer”
17: “Boredom Enhancement Agent”
18: “Wrapping Paper Musician”
19: “Substitute Cat Toy”
20: “Bubble Pattern Director”
21: “Sr. Meeting Attender”
22: “Paint Drying Observationalist”
23: “Gossip Engineer”
24: “Confetti Counter”
25: “Executive Thinker”
26: “Squawk Officer”
27: “Expert of Stuff”
28: “Dingleberry Farmer”
29: “EVP Self-Tickling”
30: “Hug Champion”
31: “Joy Maker”

Then Little Scott awoke from dreaming about Monsters at Work. Inktober was over, but Little Scott decided to work like a monster the rest of his life.

Inktober

For those that don’t know what Inktober is: Inktober.com

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

I [Jake Parker] created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.

Inktober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it online

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2017

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

Bernie Wrightson

BernieWrightson_Frankenstein-CoverSad to learn of Bernie Wrightson’s passing today, March 19, 2017. I enjoyed and was inspired by his work. (Pictured is my copy of Wrightson’s book “Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein, Introduction by Stephen King“)

Per Wikipedia:

…an American artist, known for co-creating the creature Swamp Thing, his Frankenstein illustration work, and for his other horror comics and illustrations, which feature his trademark intricate pen and brush work.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Wrightson

Per Wrightson’s Site:

It is with great sorrow that I must announce the passing of my beloved husband, Bernie. We thank you for all the years of love and support. His obituary is below:

After a long battle with brain cancer, legendary artist Bernie Wrightson has passed away…
