Another October, another Inktober, and the Internet is flooded with great pieces of art. Only this year I actually participated - not just in one month-long challenge, but two. In July I also challenged myself to do a month of cat-related drawings as a parallel to Camp NaNoWriMo, then picked up my pens again for Inktober. There have been several aborted attempts at trying to do month-long drawing challenges in the past, but I've always given up after the first week or so. I'm incredibly proud of myself for doing two this year, and wanted to write about the experience I had and the lessons I learnt.
