A few years ago the illustrious Jake Parker came up with the idea of InkTober, a month long celebration of the fine art of drawing in ink and a challenge to artists to try their hand at producing 31 ink drawings in 31 days. (Jake has posted a nice bit of information here).

This year I'm going to give it a shot.

I don't know how successful I'll be. I've got a lot going on in October, including a trip to New York Comic Con next weekend. But I'll do the best I can. Maybe not the full 31, but something. I'll post the drawings on my twitter and here on the blog, in batches, about once a week.

Oh, and I've given myself a theme: Outlaw Wizards. They are Magic users banned from walled cities, scraping together a life for themselves on the raggedy edge of civilization. Here are the first two (for today and tomorrow), the Vagabond Sorceress of the Northern Roads, and the Patchwork Wizard.

Oh! and the other thing to keep a lookout for this month is Zita costumes. I have a pretty big backlog of Zita cosplay photos to share, so I'm planning to start posting those in the weeks leading up to Halloween...

So ...excelsior?
