Misfit Sloth for Inktober

  • Inktober – Mistfit
  • Doodlewash – Sloth

Today I used my Postcard for the Lunch Bag for my Inktober drawing. The sloth is kind of a misfit, unable to do more than crawl along the ground. Mostly they just hang from trees, letting fungus and molds turn their fur green. But they have been around since prehistoric times – the size of elephants at one time! Maybe being slothful isn’t so bad after all!

Today is the 18th day of Inktober, where anyone who is interested is challenged to do an ink drawing every day! There are prompts: Jake Parker (founder of Inktober) has an official list, but many others have put out lists as well, including the usual set of prompts from Doodlewash.com.

The official Inktober Prompt List.

And the Doodlewash prompt list for the month.
