If it’s October, it must also be Inktober, the other great thing about the 10th month of the year.* During Inktober, artists from all over the world create a different ink drawing every day of the month (or every other day, or whatever schedule works for them). While the official Inktober site provides a list of “prompts” to help inspire artists, many of them choose their own themes.
With many comic artists once again participating this year — you can find a lot of them on Twitter or Tumblr using the #inktober hashtag, and we’ve been posting a bunch on our own Tumblr — we thought we’d spotlight a few of the fun ones we’ve seen so far.
In our first Inktober spotlight, let’s take a look at what Extremity creator Daniel Warren Johnson has been doing. “My inktober this year is themed around wrestlers, cause why not?” he said on Twitter. Since then, he’s shared images of legendary wrestlers like Dusty Rhodes and Andre the Giant, as well as more recent stars like All-Elite Wrestling’s Private Party and Kenny Omega.
He said he has plans to collect all his drawings into a book later this year, with a cover featuring — speaking of legends — an awesome color Jushin Thunder Liger. That’ll be something to watch for, but for now, check out a few of his drawings below. You can see more on his Twitter feed.
