It’s that time of year again when we put down our pencils and pick up our favorite ink pens in anticipation of Inktober®. My name is Jerome (aka kulorbandit), an artist based in Phoenix, AZ, and today I’ll be showing you which Zebra Pen tools I like to use for the Inktober® challenge and for illustrating in general, and how I like to use them. So, let’s get started!
Pumpkin spice, football games, red and yellow leaves; there’s no denying October is in the air. Along with all of the Fall fun, Zebra pen is also excited to take part in this year’s Inktober events!
Inktober was created in 2009 by artist, Jake Parker as an initiative for artists to share their work and get into daily drawing habits through the month of October! Since then, Inktober has not only given artists a reason to share their work, it has also helped to build the artist community by encouraging one another through the entire month of October.
At Zebra Pen, we fully support individuality and self-expression, the basis of Inktober! This year, we are celebrating Inktober with a chance to win our new line of artist products called Zensations.
Inktober is the perfect opportunity to break out your favorite Zebra products and show off some of your own original artwork!
The rules are simple:
Create a drawing
Post it on your social media accounts
Hashtag it with #inktober and #zensations
Repeat this each day through the month of October
At the end of each week, we will select a winner to receive our new Zensations line of products including tools and utensils specifically made for artists like you!
Put yourself out there and get your work exposed to the artist community! Show off what Zebra products you used to make your artwork and tell us what you like about them!
Sharing your art might just inspire someone else to share theirs! It also might inspire you to keep drawing. Many Zebra products were created with artists in mind. Try out our Sarasa Fineliner or Zebra Fountain Pen to get inspired!
Build the community of artists and encourage one another through the Inktober journey! Like and comment on other art to show your support. Don’t forget to add #zensations so we can find your awesome work!
