The clock is ticking down to the start of InkTober!

Although it may not be as big as National Novel Writing Month, over the past five years InkTober has grown into a global event. What's InkTober, you ask? It's a challenge created in 2009 by illustrator Jake Parker to help improve inking skills and work habits -- and this year's edition starts tomorrow.

If the date sneaked up on you, don't panic: All that's required is a pen or brush and paper -- but you'll probably also need an Internet connection, and either a scanner or digital camera.

Each day throughout October, you simply make an ink drawing and upload to your blog, Facebook page, or Twitter or Instagram account, accompanied by the hashtag #inktober. (Or, as Parker suggests, you can simply pin it to your wall.)

That's it: 31 drawings in 31 days. Parker breaks down the rules, and provides a list of resources, on his website.
