INKtober 2013. A drawing a day for the whole month of October


I have just finished my INKtober project for this year. It is the brainchild of Jake Parker ( and it came up as a way of improving your inking skills. INKtober consists in uploading one drawing a day to your social networks for the month of October where ink is the main feature of the image. Most of the people taking part on it seem to have some background in animation and, as far as I can see, have a very specific use of ink.
I decided to use the month to set some time aside to explore not only my inking but also framing, composition and colour.
The result is not only thirty one pictures but almost three sketchbooks fill with ideas and experiments which I am sure will spark a lot of other work in the coming months.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have doing it.

Off Lines – New Works by Luke Ramsey


Sand drawn lines are for crossing
Schools teach children to colour within the lines.
Society shows adults how to get in line.
Social networks connect people online.

Sometimes interconnection lies on a time line.
Somehow it speaks truth when it’s offline.
Straight lines can get crazy.
Smooth lines can be wavy.

Off Lines. A solo exhibition of new works by Luke Ramsey.

Selections from Luke’s forthcoming illustrated sci-fi book “IS?” are included in this exhibit.
