The annual Inktober art event, which was begun by US artist Jake Parker in 2009, begins, as always, on 1 October. Participants are encouraged to create a drawing or doodle a day, in ink, for the course of the month and post it online on social media.

If that's too much they can opt for every second day or even once a week - the point is to create something and improve your art. You don't have to be an artist to join in; you just need to want to participate. Anyone can grab a pen and start doodling.

Every year a number of South African comics creators join in, though few have ever made it all the way through to the end of the month. What's important is the effort that they do put in, which helps to make them better artists. will be monitoring their progress because the art is usually wonderful and very creative.

Event: Inktober 2017, Worldwide

Jake Parker has posted a "prompt list" (above) for people finding themselves out of inspiration. You don't need to follow it but if you get stuck it's a handy tool to inspire your creativity.
