What is Inktober?

Inktober is a month-long art challenge event that takes place from October 1st to October 31st. During October, artists from around the world create one ink drawing for each day of the month; the goal is to create thirty-one different drawings in thirty-one days. In 2009, illustrator Jake Parker started this challenge for himself as a means to improve his own skills, but now, Inktober has grown into a massive event with over 250,000 participants around the world.

 

※Artists are not obligated to post artwork daily, simply post as often as you'd like. You may also post more than once a day

​Inktober × Kuretake

What colors do you visualize when you hear the word “black”?

There are many different shades of black, including reddish black, bluish black, and infinite black. Traditionally, sumi ink also has a slight brown or reddish tint, but can also appear slightly blue.

 

Starting in 1902, Kuretake began developing and manufacturing traditional Japanese sumi ink. Kuretake continues to embrace it's roots in traditional sumi ink making and also believes in the Inktober ideals and goals and thus formed a partnership. Throughout Inktober, we would like to convey the true, multicolored allure of black ink.
