31 days, 31 drawings: a USFSP student’s Inktober creations

Thousands of artists from all over the world take part in the Inktober challenge each year to make 31 drawings in the month of October.

Artist Jake Parker created the challenge in 2008 to develop his own inking skills and “positive drawing habits.” Since then, the challenge has grown to reach artists worldwide. Professionals and amateurs alike are invited to participate. There are only three rules. Participants must draw one piece a day that follows the prompt, post it online, and hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018.

Artists can use different mediums such as calligraphy and watercolor so long as they use one color per piece. Zuza Janczak, a sophomore majoring in graphic design, chose to take on the challenge with her calligraphy skills.

“I got into calligraphy because I have always liked this form of art and found it interesting,” Janczak said. “I started Inktober because it’s a great way of improving your skills, and it makes you work on it every day. I like how it has a set list of prompts so that I can focus on making it rather than coming up with ideas on what to write.”

Janczak has many more calligraphy pieces on her Instagram.
