Inktober ’15

In true Elou fashion, I have decided to leap back into this creative-activity and blogging revival head first and challenge myself. Really challenge myself. I’ve previously mentioned my inability to stick to schedules in my personal creative and bloggy sphere, and, as such, have decided to give myself not one but two. Oh.

As of tomorrow, once I have skipped out of the office to buy a new sketchbook and hopefully some creative tools, I will be embarking on Inktober. For those who don’t know, Inktober is an art challenge in which you create a new piece every single day in October using some variation of ink (schedule number one); for me, this will probably mean a lot of biro but I am hoping to experiment. To my knowledge, there isn’t an existing list of things to draw, so I am creating my own. If you have any suggestions, let me know in the comments!

To avoid clogging my blog with a new post every day (cue schedule number two), I will be posting weekly round-ups on Mondays, including images from Monday to Sunday of the week before (Thursday to Sunday of this week!), and this entry will turn into a master post of sorts. Excellent.

If you want to follow my Inktober in real time, you can follow my Instagram or my (currently empty) snazzy, new Tumblr – I thought it was about time I made one specifically for my arty endeavours, rather than just using my junk tumblr. I will be intermittently posting older photography, doodles and other art-like things. Excuse its current emptiness.

If you’re also cannon-balling into Inktober, let me know in the comments so I can follow your progress! Happy doodling!
