I did a bit of inktober

I wanted to draw every day, but that turned out to be very unrealistic. So let’s focus on the positive, which is that I made some doodles, and probably had more drawing time than I would have had without the Inktober fun/stress 😀

I managed to draw some pizza and some people and stuff for this year’s Inktober. And I decided to only draw Inktober drawings in my sketchbook and with pens and markers (not digital drawings).

As I mention in the first post I chose to follow the Inktober prompt list by Agata Zlotko this year. I loved the list and it made it easy to think of something to draw. For other Inktober years I’ve literally spent all day trying to think of something to draw that would fit the prompt. Which made it even harder to get something down on paper.

Btw check out my Inktober drawings from last year via this tag: Inktober 2020 – and you’re very welcome to check out Inktober 2019 here and 2018 too, while you’re at it.

I don’t remember how it went, so I think I’ll have a look after writing this 😀

As you can see, I recently switched to captioning my posts on Instagram in both Danish and English, so if you follow me over there, just scroll down a bit to read in English 🙂 I also switched my handle to jo_illu which kind of works in both languages, I guess.

I love writing in English, but sometimes it feels a bit strange, since most of the people who follow me on Instagram are Danish speakers and people I know. I’ll continue to write in English here, though 😀

I had a lot of fun drawing these three doodles for October 5, 6 and 7 from reference, which is something I don’t do very often. So I think I need to do that more, it’s very good drawing practice to draw random objects.

I’ve always found mugs and cups are incredibly difficult to draw. And I think these drawings show that I’m struggling. But I had fun drawing the patterns 😀

Weirdly, I made two doodles on the 20th which ended up being the last day of Inktober for me. Welp! Hope you had fun with this catch-up post.
