Inktober Tangles 2019 Official List

  Hello world! As we approach October, I have come up with a list for the annual Inktober challenge. Inktober is an online event where artists all over the world challenge themselves by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I adapted the idea to fit with Zentangle art by making each day's prompts be a tangle.

  If you'd like to participate, draw a tile a day using the day's listed tangle, and hashtag your art work using #InktoberTangles2019 so that other people can find out what you create each day. You can post your art on your blog or on your Instagram. By popular request, I have created a Facebook group where you can post what you create during Inktober. The link to that group is here:

  If you'd like your art to be featured in my newsletter, use the hashtag #7F5R for me to find you - this is optional.

  If you cannot commit to the entire month, you can opt to draw however many tiles you can manage, or you can also combine the prompts of a couple of days into one tile. If you miss a day, don't feel discouraged! Just continue from where you left, or do that day's prompt. The challenge is meant to get you to draw more, not to have you be overwhelmed, so just do what you can and have fun.   For easy reference, I have linked each tangle with their step-outs. So you can just click on them to find out how to draw them.

  Without further ado, here are the prompts for Inktober Tangles 2019:

  1. Thanks for your annual list! But I'm in denial that there's only a month to go till October! I wonder how I'll get on with Inktober this year - last year I never made it beyond the 3rd day!
