 The Pen Isn’t Just Mightier Than the Sword, It Can Paint A Million Pictures Too

Come October and our social media feeds have been filled with some seriously cool drawings and artwork. It’s not just the creative juices of artists that start flowing but also their multi-coloured inks onto paper, making us wish we were artsy and creative too.

Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. In 2009 artist Jake Parker created Inktober as a challenge to improve his artistic inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavour with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. "Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing." Jake says.

So what are you waiting for? Open those sketchbooks and dust off the pens! Inktober is here!  

And while you're at it, here's a few of our favourite Kochikaar (in no particular order) who are inking their way into our Instagram feeds and our hearts this October
