Inktober Challenge 2017 - Week 3





This month brings with it the delightful, arty challenge of 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.

Our staff in Dublin, Manchester and Toronto have taken up the challenge and each week we’re going to post a selection of their work!

Here’s a quick look through week three:

2D Designer Kasia Brzezinska drew up some fantastic fictional ladies she admires - can you guess who these characters are?
