Since 2009, the worldwide art initiative Inktober brings about illustrations made over the span of thirty-one days – daily sketches and drawings originally kicked off by artist Jake Parker, whose motivational self-challenge project quickly found fans as he publicly shared ink drawings he created each day on social media.

With a prompt list setting the theme of each artwork for the month of October, Jake’s artsy efforts piqued the interest of many creative individuals, and Inktober soon grew into an annual challenge participated by artists across the globe. By making a habit to consistently draw each day, thousands of artists discover how their art improved through their inked progression. The gratifying end reward lies in looking back on their self-accomplishments spanning over the month’s worth of taking pen to paper – be it physical or digital.
Whether you’re a professional illustrator or just a regular Joe who dabbles in doodling, Inktober is an occasion to harness your sense of creativity. Get inspired with our hand-drawn and digital collection of vector artwork below.
Sensing those sparks zinging off your skin? That’s creativity calling. Grab a brush or pen and your choice of art medium – your dusty moleskine, a sketchbook, napkin, or the jacket of your nearest friend, and let your imagination take over.
