With the recent controversy surrounding Inktober and it’s creator, I decided to create my own version of the month-long artist Instagram challenge, which I dubbed “Madtober.” With the help of my friends and family, I compiled a list of 31 different prompts to inspire a month of illustrations in October. In true fashion of the normal Inktober challenge, I made each graphic the same day it was posted using Procreate. While Inktober is primarily focused on just sketching out ideas, I wanted to take it a step further and have more fleshed out designs. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I didn’t complete the 31 days, however, I still learned a lot from this experience and plan on doing a much more cohesive design style for 2021’s Madtober.
