Thanks to Jake Parker, October is fast becoming a very special month for putting pen to paper.
Parker, a writer and illustrator based in Arizona, is the person who turned October into Inktober, a worldwide event that invites people to create 31 drawings in 31 days. Participants then share the wonders they create when ink and imagination combine.
Born in 2009 out of Parker’s personal challenge to improve his drawing skills, Inktober (the merging of Ink + October) now counts millions of participants across the globe. It’s a moment that encourages everyone – regardless of their drawing experience – to dedicate time every day to nurturing their talent and channeling self-expression through drawing.
