Oh my GOTH: can you believe it's October already?!
This is my favourite month of the year: what with all the conkers, colourful leaves and chance to dress up like an idiot for Halloween.
To me, October is an official excuse to act moody, wear black and eat sweets for a month. And with winter creeping in, it's also the perfect excuse for us to stay indoors, get the sketchbook out and channel our inner Van GOTHS!
Your first Inktober challenge
I've got some wicked activities lined up for us this month! The first is to design a suitable spooky cover for theOctober issue of Sketch Appeal magazine.
Sketch Appeal is a (fictional) fashion magazine, so think gorgeous goths, fierce faces and creepy couture. You could hone in a key feature or body part for a minimalist look: or go all out with a theatrical Alexander McQueen number!
The choice - and the challenge - is yours!
