"Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavour with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year." Jake ParkerRead More
We're starting off 2014 on a creativity high with the
30 day sketchbook challenge!!!
The summer of 2013 was the first 30 day challenge here at l.i.d! Even though it was summer break, and we were on our annual family vacation and had limited internet access, I managed to sketch, colour, paint and share daily here on l.i.d. and via social media.
I wasn't alone on that challenge, I had a few amazingly talented people join along, who shared their creativity, who offered encouragement to one another and who inspired me to post daily!! To see my 30 days of sketches and a link to a few of these fabulous people, click here.
Now with the holiday rush coming to a close and with a start of a new year
what better way to open 2014 than with a new challenge!?!!
I invite you to join in the next the 30 Day Sketchbook Challenge!
