Upcoming Events & Challenges:
Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.
Jake Parker created Inktober back in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing; as will I! Hopefully you'll not only follow my journey... but start your own artistic journey as well!
Se que Octubre es un mes muy ocupado para mi debido a mi compromiso con el evento de arte mundial conocido como Inktober pero mi isla de Puerto Rico necesita nuestra ayuda y yo tengo que decir presente... espero que ustedes digan presente tambien.

Every year in the month of March, a thunderous cadence can be heard rolling across the land. Artists around the world celebrate their love of all things robotic duringMARCH of ROBOTS!
The goal is to draw a new robot illustration each day for 31 days. If you feel you’re up to the full 31 day challenge, awesome! If not no worries. You don’t have to do a drawing every day. Just set yourself a goal and stick with it.
I started this community drawing challenge mainly to improve my drawing skills and to explore my vision of the future where robots are part of our everyday life. So! Open those sketchbooks, sharpen those pencils, boot up those digital drawing tools the ROBOTS are coming!!!
The 3 Laws of Robotic Fun: 1.Drawings can be digital or analogue, but it must be drawn by you and it has to be a robot or depict a scene featuring a robot. 2.Hashtag your drawings with #marchofrobots and #marchofrobots2018 then post it to Instagram and any other social spot you like. Twitter, tumblr, etc. 3.Have fun with it!
What is Buy Indie Comics Day? Phil Buck, Carmelo Chimera and Manuel A. Carmona founded Buy Indie Comics Day so indie, small press, and local creators around the globe could synergize on a single day designed to celebrate their work. It's our hope that retailers across the World will take this chance to stock up on indie comics, that consumers will take a risk on new comics and creators they've never heard of, and last but not least; that creators have an event to push their project on.
So if you're a creator, find a local comic shop and get in there! If you're a retailer, invite local creators to table at your shop and stock up on their work! And if you're a fan, buy a comic you've never heard of from someone you don't know!
