Inspired to Illustrate! DayCloud Studios Rocked Inktober 2018

This October, DayCloud participated in the annual Inktober drawing challenge! The goal is to post one ink drawing per day throughout the month of October to help boost creativity and improve your skills.

Here are the rules:

1. Make a drawing in ink

2. Post it online

3. Hashtag it with #INKTOBER & #INKTOBER2018

4. Repeat every day of October


Each day had a word prompt, which we gladly took some liberties with! Color is acceptable, but the challenge is really about “simplifying your options as an artist, and seeing what you can create with a white sheet of paper and black ink.”


DayCloud’s designers Ross Finocchiaro & Paul Meyer traded off each day creating illustrations. See our favorites below!

The Inktober challenge was started by illustrator Jake Parker in 2009, and is now popular all over the world. Check out Jake’s video for more about Inktober, how it got started, and how you can participate next year!
