You’ve got to admire the dedication of those that commit to Inktober and manage to post one illustration a day for the whole month. It takes some doing.
Yep, that’s 31 drawings in 31 days.
Us Trufflettes have managed all of zero, but we’re pretty busy at Truffle Remote HQ filling jobs with all the wonderful creative peeps we work with.
So, we’ve been voyeurs in all of this and have picked out some of our favourite submissions from budding and established artists across the globe in the 1st few weeks of #Inktober.
v-0-3! is a self-taught comic artist and illustrator from Poland who wants to make drawing her fulltime job, we love manga when it’s done well and she’s doing something right…
Laurie Conley – with Halloween just around the corner, we’re loving the work of Laurie who has worked as an illustrator for the likes of Penguin and the American Red Cross. She’s partial to cute ghosts, and err, lots of death. Why not?
Bryan Schiavone is a 23-year-old ink artist who is wildly talented. Her Inktober contributions include tutorials, tiny animals and all sorts of wonderful things that Truffle loves, but we’re still waiting for a pig.
Josefine Svärd, or Wildwither as she’s known on Instagram, is an illustrator and photographer from Gothenburg in Sweden. She’s hooked us in with her love of pigs and her warm appeal for people to respect animals. Her drawings and the meaning behind them is honest and uniquely special, one to follow on IG, for sure.
SeedohSketches, who we discovered on Instagram, doesn’t give much away in his bio. If the profile picture is anything to go by it’s actually a cat. As parents, who have suffered immensely with Disney fatigue, we have to admit we were energised by his takes on these characters from the books and movies.
Lastly, John Bond is an author and an illustrator who recently published the children’s book, Mini Rabbit Not Lost through Harper Collins. It’s the cuteness and the simplicity in how and what he draws that’s got us hooked. Lovely work and we’ll be sure to buy his book over anything Disney.
Inspired? We are. We’ve even vowed to take part in 2019, gulp.
There are still a few more weeks left to follow all the incredible submissions, use the hashtag #Inktober.
