While I’ve always drawn every day, I noticed this summer that I was having a more difficult time finishing my own projects. Half completed long-form comics, drawings, and even single panel cartoons were piling up, and I could feel myself getting discouraged by my lack of follow-through. I heard about Inktober, a daily drawing challenge that encourages artists to think up, draw out, and publish an ink drawing every day for the month of October. Not only was it a really fun exercise, it helped me get back to good drawing habits and encouraged me to try out new tools and styles. While most of my work thats appeared here on Medium and elsewhere has been overtly political, I made an effort to explore some different themes and styles with these posts.
