I attended inktober2018 and inktober2019 doing only ink sketches. Even though I had a lot of fun during the time, it was also stressful doing one drawing each day for a whole month.

When inktober announced the inktober52 concept I got really excited. It was the same principle but instead of doing one drawing per day during October, the goal was now to do one drawing per week for the whole year.

At the time I was in-between jobs and the corona virus spread around the globe, so I had all the time in the world.

The inktober52 2020 challenge started out as an idea for me to create both an ink version and vector version for all the prompts. However, after only a few prompts I stopped doing the ink versions and put all my time and energy on the vector versions. Why? – I just realised how much I liked working in vector.

The challenge was going well and I made an illustration a week and published a corresponding speedpaint of the process on my YouTube channel. Then, after prompt 31, I suddenly quit due to some radical changes in my life. I could no longer prioritise the challenge.

I felt a bit sad in the beginning about not finishing the challenge, but after a while I gave myself some credit for all the work I had put down.

What is inktober? 🤔

inktober is a yearly drawing challenge in which you aim to do one drawing per day throughout October. Each day has a prompt on what to draw, e.g. POISONOUS, TRANQUIL and ROASTED just to name the first three prompts from 2018.
