It’s October, a month of fun and revelry with friends and hopefully no frenemies. It’s also an art month for various people around and about called “inktober“.  However, it can be a hard and challenging month figuring out what to sketch and all that especially in ink.

I happen to love ink, thick lines, thin lines, hatching and crosshatching and the beloved pentel pocket pen brush .  As the month goes on it gets more challenging to figure out what to draw. With the prompts as they’re semi-random words to take as you choose i.e   brainy or joy, promotion, lettering. One could be literal or figurative, imaginative as possible – a zombie having lunch with too many brains on the side for the WD fans in the audience or Einstein, musk and other intellectual winners around the world.  So we’ve listed some most excellent sources of graphic inspiration for your artistic endeavors.
