InkTober Drawing Challenge 2015

I came across the InkTober drawing challenge in a recent email from the Artist's network.  It was apparently started in 2009 by artist Jake Parker.  You can find out all about it at: http://mrjakeparker.com/InkTober 
October is such a great month to be out sketching so I decided to commit to one drawing a week and will post it on Draw:Madison and if I get more ambitious do a Flicker page.  Several sketching tools are suggested on Jake's site among them the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (below) a favorite tool of mine and other Draw:Madison sketchers.  Hope to see some more ink drawings on our blog next month.  Happy InkTober to all Madison sketchers!!
