Today is the start of the INKtober 31 challenge on Facebook. The challenge is to create and upload a new piece of work every single day for the duration of October, using only ink-based media – which is great because I love my biros and fineliners! I’ve bought a new sketchbook especially so it seemed appropriate to create a title page for day 1 and what better creature is there for this inky challenge than an octopus? Yes, that is just an excuse to draw tentacles. If you’d like to get involved, check out the challenge’s facebook page, entitles INKtober 31.
