Inktober is one of those challenges that people take up or not with no pressure from anyone – but you may find lovely sketches floating around your favourite social media with the hashtag #inktober all through the month of October.

I’ve been enjoying the sketches my cover illustrator, Danielle English, who shows off her talent every year, put on her twitterfeed each Inktober.  This year she’s also showing them on her new Facebook page Kanizo Art.  So please support her and comment on them.

And as Dani showed some more of her work the other day, I realised that Inktober was the perfect prompt for me to do the illustrations for Willoughby the Narrator.  Inktober should be one sketch a day, making 31, and Willoughby needs no more than 19, so I could either aim for the half marathon and post every other day, or go for broke and do the remaining ones from chapters for The Princelings of the North.

I’ll be posting them first onto my Pinterest page, where they will link to the Princelings of the East Facebook page and my Twitterfeed.  Search for #inktober if you’re interested!

    Cool! I’ll definitely be following Dani’s posts, and look forward to the results of your sketching 🙂 Not sure I’m up for participation myself; not many people want to see my efforts at drawing 😀

      I was somewhat encouraged in my drawing efforts after reading Inkheart, which were neater and better, but still the looser style of sketch that I do. When I get into my chapter illustrations, I really enjoy them 🙂

    So excited! I love your illustrations. I liked Dani’s page and her posts are fabulous. Looking forward to Willoughby’s tale.

      Thanks, Judy. Dani is superb. I wish I could write a book that would really let her do her favourite things on the cover!
