Inktober Challenge 2017 - Week 1





It’s that wonderful time of year again - INKTOBER!

Set up by artist Jake Parker, the challenge encourages artists all over the world to do one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October.

We’ve got our Dublin and Manchester studios taking part in the Inktober fun and each week we’re going to post a selection of their work!

Here’s a quick roundup of week one:
