It's October, which means it's time to get ink on your hands (if you're an artist, anyway). This is part one of the brainwavez.org showcase of local comics creators' #inktober sketches for 2014.

Showcase: #inktober 2014, Day 1 To Day 8: Alien, Mario Bros., LEGO, Werewolves, And More

The InkTober Initiative is an annual social-media-based art project that was started in 2009 by Jake Parker, an illustrator based in Utah, as a personal challenge to help him improve his drawing skills and stretch himself. Now thousands of artists all over the world take part in the project each October by producing one ink drawing each day and posting their work on social platforms.

South African comics creators and illustrators are no exception - a number of locals have also been participating this year and they have been producing some amazing work. Rayaan Cassiem, for example, has been working on a monster/villain theme in honour of Halloween later this month, Ben Winfield has been working on individual drawings that, when placed together in a grid form a bigger story, and Chris Beukes has been working on a comics experiment.

brainwavez.org has been monitoring the posts and here is a showcase of the first eight days of the project. We'll have more posts in the coming weeks to showcase the work from the rest of the month so keep an eye on the site for those articles.

If you haven't joined in yet it's not too late - you can start today and continue until the end of the month or, if you have time, you can work on extra pieces and catch up the days you've missed. Either way, the point is to participate, get out of your drawing comfort zones, and create some new art in ink!


This post was updated on 21 October 2014 to include Anward Davids's work and on 6 November 2014 to include Kevin Richter's work.
