According to Jake's website (www.mrjakeparker.com), "Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing."

Last year, in 2016, my artistically gifted husband, Javier Rangel, participated in #Inktober, by challenging himself to create an ink drawing each of the 31 days. This past October, Javier began to hashtag his ink drawings with #Inktober again, and I too became inspired to try to challenge myself to draw more!
I have been drawing ever since I was a kid. As the years past by, and my education of Art and Art Techniques advanced, my drawing skills advanced as well. After studying Fashion Illustration in Fashion Design College, I began to fine tune my drawing skills in body proportion, drawing clothing details, and rendering human faces.
While participating in #Inktober 2017, I did not follow the given prompts by #Inktober's Official Website (shown above), but instead focused my illustrations primarily on Fashion! I mostly used recent issues of Vogue for inspiration, although there are a few sketches inspired elsewhere.

My #Inktober Illustrations!
I truly loved participating in the #Inktober Challenge of drawing each and every day throughout the month of October. I found it most challenging to simply find the time during my day to draw. However, as the days passed by, I noticed my rusty inkmenship and shading techniques improve, as well as other areas I drastically need improvement on! I have always needed more practice drawing woman's faces!
Nevertheless, I hope that you enjoyed viewing my #Inktober Illustrations!
Please feel free to share with me your experiences if you too participated in #Inktober by writing a comment, and sharing with me your Instagram Page link! I would love to see your work!
