Inktober 2016
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Pete Underhill | Share link:


I took part in Jake Parker’s Inktober for the first time in 2015 and the results were a bit all over the place with style and subject matter. I wasn’t going to take up the challenge this year, but I recently bought a new fountain pen along with some very nice Diamine inks and the temptation became too great. So, this year I decided to only use the TWSBI Eco extra fine fountain pen for all 31 drawings with the Diamine inks – starting with the Imperial Purple. If the pen runs dry, I might refill with Teal, if the mood takes me.
I also intend keeping the style of the drawings akin to what’s going on with my portfolio. Six days and and it’s going OK and it’s not taking too much of a bite out of my day.

"It has been a pleasure working with Pete. We were looking for an illustrator for the longest time, and once we discovered his excellent drawings from, we knew he was the one. He was the ultimate professional - efficient, timely, and especially creative. Not only did his illustration far exceed our expectations, but he completed the project much ahead of our timeline. We look forward to working with him again."
