October Art Contest!

Here boy! Art by Jake Parker.

Here boy! Art by Jake Parker.

It’s the time of year for spooky things! So for this month’s contest we are gonna summon the undead. 🧟‍♀️

The prompt is: “The experiment worked! Penny was so relieved to have her dog back from the dead.” It’s brought to you by Jake Parker, the Inktober guy!

Since it’s Inktober and all, Jake added a few extra requirements just to get you in the spirit:

  • Must be ink, or look like ink.

  • Must be black and white.

The challenge here is to take something really specific, and make it your own. It’s easy to do things that you are already comfortable with, it’s a lot harder to get out of your comfort zone!

This is gonna be fun, let’s see what you guys come up with!
