Inktober 2016 – the Results

Inktober 2016 – the Results

Here’s a little (somewhat tardy) round-up of this year’s Inktober!  I’ll share some of the Inktober drawings that I consider moderately successful below 😉

Spreading the Inktober cheer…

I ended up with 22/31 entries – I kept it up pretty much until my flight to Chile, which I think is pretty decent.

While there, I did draw tons of little animals with my niece Josefa of 2 years old. She loved making animal sounds based on my doodles and filling page after page with bold marker squiggles. So here’s to instilling a new generation of artists with a love for markers and silly drawings of farm animals in bowties! 😉

Oftentimes she would add her own artistic perspective to one of my doodles, leading to collaborative works such as “Cat in the Night”:

I’ve got a dummybook full of these, which is a nice memento of some fun moments of my 3-week trip to Chile.

Anyway, here are some of my other favourite entries of this year’s Inktober:


When Inktober started my ‘mild obsession’ (*cough*) with the Hamilton musical was pretty much at its peak, so there were a bunch of entries dedicated to it. Here are a few of them:

Eliza Schuyler – Hamilton as portrayed by Philippa Soo

Toony bits

I also did a bunch of toony character designs for fun, adding snippets of story to it for the heck of it.

Ralphie & Bert

“Ralphie and Bert soon found out that the little red kitten they adopted was a big hit with the ladies.”

The Crazy Adventures of Cliff the Corgi & Cuddles the Cat

Corgi and Cat

“Cliff was always cramping Cuddles’ style.”

Candace the Candy Witch

“Candace the Candy Witch with her Candy Cat familiar Clarence, who is a bigger fan of terra firma.”

Minimalist experiments

I also had fun doing a bunch of minimalist designs, using only two or three tones to portray a character. I also did that with the above rendition of Alexander Hamilton and the drawing in the header of this post, of Gemma Arterton 🙂

Study of a photo by Eric Lafforgue, of Miss Aki Tuna

That’s a wrap

I am considering putting some of the original designs (i.e. not studies of photos) up in my Etsy store, feel free to message me if there is one that caught your eye 🙂
