Inktober is a yearly drawing challenge. You have to make a drawing in pen and ink every day in the month. You can either use the prompts they give you or draw whatever the hell you want.

I forgot to do yesterday’s as I didn’t realise it was October, but here’s day 2, done this evening.


I was looking up reference pictures to check what their feet look like, and their little feet look like the boots of suits of armour, so that’s why I drew it like that.

I’m not doing this as I can barely draw a stick person, but my wife is:


I guess this is a Pangolin Passant Sinistre

Here are some of my favourites so far.


fuck sake, why can’t it just be normal (i.e. shit) drawings so we can all have a go


these are lovely

You’ve signed up to this now. You’re legally obliged to get a new tattoo every day this month.

Using the prompts. Today’s theme is “poison”.

Can’t wait to see your tattoo for “filthy”.

Day three- just a quick sketch this time- a product I saw in a dream. The prompt was “poison”. How’s my patent chances @Epimer?


Could’ve got it done but you’ve went and disclosed it now.

Next time.

I guess I didn’t specify the exact formula of bin juice?

If you’ve got additional components beyond the three listed, let’s talk.

(The hilarious thing is I could genuinely file a UK patent application in your name by sending them that picture, a napkin with “Yes I would like a patent for this please thank you” and a means to contact you. I’m obviously not going to because it would be an absurd breach of professional ethics, and, y’know, a really bizarre thing to do, but it’s weird that I have that power.)

I feel it’s a product that would probably attract lawsuits anyway, so it’s probably for the best that I don’t make my fortune with a patented noxious blend of super strong chili, durian and bin essence.

Imagine if that pen leaked.

Day four. Another 15 minute late night sketch - today’s prompt was “underwater”. I’m not so happy with this one, the tail is too lifeless. Still I got it done at least.

I adjusted the fin and back legs, but it’s still not quite right.
