It's October, which means it's once again time for The InkTober Initiative, a month long project that artists from all over the world participate in in order to hone their skills. This is part one of the brainwavez.org showcase of South African comics creators' #inktober sketches for 2015.

Showcase: #inktober 2015, Day 1 To Day 7: Aliens, Broforce, Robots, Mario, Mutants, And More


It's InkTober time again and a number of South African comics creators have been participating and posting their daily doodles and inked creations on social media.

The InkTober Initiative was started in 2009 by US artist Jake Parker as a way to challenge himself to improve his skills and it is now an international movement that takes place every October.


Once again brainwavez.org has been monitoring the local posts and will be bringing you roundups of the sketches and artworks before they disappear into the social-media ephemeral hole. For the next four weeks we will be posting updates so you can see how the participants are doing and who has been managing to stay on course as a daily artwork is a monumental task that's not easy to achieve for 31 days in a row!

Here's a roundup of the first seven days. (If you're on a slower connection you might want to give it a few seconds to load because the social plugins don't work very quickly.)
