Ask a Cartoonist: Inktober
If you're a cartoonist or illustrator, you might have already heard about the Inktober Initiative, a challenge during which artists draw an ink drawing each day of the month.
Several King Features cartoonists took part this year, and a few more wanted to get in on the fun by sending along an ink drawing they'd done at a different time.
This ink and ink wash drawing was done on clayboard with a brush-- I've always loved drawing on super smooth surfaces. Clayboard and ink are a great duo to work with.
--Rina Piccolo, Tina's Groove and Six Chix
I found about Inktober too late, but I've been busy inking up drawings for a magazine article about puberty!

--Mort Walker, Beetle Bailey
I did a bunch of them, still am doing more, you can see them on my tumblr.
--Mike Manley, Judge Parker
--Jonathan Mahood, Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog
Does ink and some color count? Here’s a takeoff on a BRAVE AND BOLD comic cover I did for a fan.
--Ron Ferdinand, Dennis the Menace
--Stephanie Piro, Six Chix
One of my #Inktober drawings - my take on Medusa (and an ode to the Halloween season!), drawn with fountain pen in my sketchbook. I LOVE drawing with pen on paper, there's nothing like having fun with a juicy sketch full of lots of little detail and crosshatching!
