Having been recently reminded that life is too short, this year I am going to dive headlong into the Inktober challenge. This involves doing a drawing with ink every day of October and posting it online. I’ve been in training for the last few months by doing a drawing every day in my tiny homemade sketchbook, some of which I have shared online. But posting my work online daily is a new challenge for me. As with everything in life, I expect some of my drawings will be more successful than others but all of them will go online regardless. It feels pretty daunting to be honest, as we are blessed with a lively and often chaotic family of three children. The weekends and the October half term holiday are going to be hard days to find time draw let alone upload images online. Nevermind, it’s worth a try. Or as my mother often says, “plough on.” I’m hoping to generate some new work, try out some new techniques and have fun along the way. So if you have the time, please do follow along with me, the odd word of encouragement will be greatly received!
