Note from the Artist: Today's prompt word is Ancient. So, I decided to go back to the roots of my drawing style. Chinese painting. I painted the character for the word Ancient in Chinese. It is the perfect example for what I try to achieve in my drawings and paintings. Less is more. Beautiful line work. Thick to thin. Chinese characters have been traced back about 6000 years. I'd say that's ancient.


    A: Inktober is a month-long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker that is focused on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits. Every day for the month of October anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing and posts it online. This collection of original art is from Joe's daily participation this October 2019. Each are hand-drawn/painted and direct from Joe's personal collection.
