Inktober is a fun challenge that millions of artists participate in every year. The challenge, started in 2009 by artist Jake Parker, encourages artists to explore the things they can do with a permanent medium, ink. Over the 31 days of October, artists follow Jake’s prompts (or just do their own thing) to create 31 amazing ink drawings! Check out the challenge and some of our favorite pieces from this year’s challenge!

In our dreams where La La Land and Beauty Beast come together, this is what happens.

This floral pup is something we would definitely want 12,000 stickers of.

Nothing says October like ghostly black cats.

Even the spookiest month of the year has room for Disney.

It might be too chilly to catch some waves, but there's no better way to make waves than with art.

Nothing says fall like cuddling up with your furry friend. ❤️
