The Ink-credible Challenge and Cause

It is a goal to make an effort for a challenge that can gain a self-confidence and potential to create better drawings. In this current time, social media has grown and thousands of people glued to their smartphones and can surf anything on the web. It is a right time to showcase your potential and creativity on creating a piece that can give you a shot.

I did my Inktober last year 2016 but I did not complete the challenge because of certain matters like freelance work and personal stuff. But still, I gain a lot of good comments from social media about my entries. This year, I should complete the Inktober 31 day challenge to post my doodle works.

The greatest cause to join this challenge would be the connection to other artists, designers, and ordinary people by communicating each other and sharing portfolio links and sample works. It is a bandwagon to encourage the people to step up and show their artistic side. All of us can draw, right?
It’s not easy to set a time for this challenge, but Inktober has a great sense for me right now. Drawing can help us go beyond the ideas that we have and we can make things possible because we draw right away.
