Have you heard of #inktober? It’s a month-long challenge that was started by illustrator and cartoonist Jake Parker. In essentials, you are encouraged to create an ink drawing each day in October. I’ve participated in the #inktober challenge twice before – both times focusing on lettering.
This year I was thinking of a new spin on the challenge. It’s called "Print Inktober." I’ll be using printing ink and stamping ink rather than drawing ink, but my goal is to create a stamped print every day of October. I want to get my stamps out of storage and into play!
I’ll be posting under the hashtag #printinktober and if you’d like to play along, you are welcome to as well!
— Create and post one print each day in October.
— Use the hashtag #printinktober when you post.
— Any stamp can be used – foam, silicone, rubber, hand carved, lino, whatever you want!
— Any ink can be used – screenprinting ink, marker ink, stamping ink, printing ink, etc.
— You can use the official #inktober prompts, if you'd like. Or not.
— Have fun and don’t worry if you miss a day (or more). The point of the challenge is to get those stamps out of storage and into use!!
What do you think? Ready to start printing?!
