The real world offers decadence, splendour and marvels, and is filled with evidence of people and their stories that happened long before we were born. The history & culture inktober prompts explore the past and celebrate the wonder of culture and industry.
The prompts have been divided into several sub-categories and you’ll find an explanation of each sub-category before the Pinterest board.
To view the prompts please visit the Pinterest board and follow the link to the original prompt creator. Always remember to link back to them as credit.
What is Inktober?
Inktober is an art prompt that was originally created in 2009 by Jake Parker who wanted a challenge to develop his inking skills. It has grown from there to become a worldwide event with thousands of artists of all skill levels taking part. The prompt consists of 31 words that act as a prompt, an idea for an ink drawing for each day. As explained in the FAQ section of the Inktober website participants are welcome to use whatever medium they want and interpret the prompts in their own way. That includes working with calligraphy and lettering if that is your field of interest. In general, the rules are pretty much lax about everything; if you want to do one a day or several in one day then that’s fine too! The whole point is to get together, challenge yourself and most of all have some fun doing it!

If you have an Inktober 2019 prompt please let me know by leaving me your link in a comment so I can add it to my list.
Please note: As with last year I will be doing my best to only include prompts in which the creators have clearly stated they are happy for people to share and take part in.
If I accidentally include a personal one or you wish for your prompt to be removed from this list please let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige.
Over to You
Thank you for viewing the 2019 History & Culture Inktober Prompts! I hope you enjoyed browsing these prompts as much as I did. I’m always fascinated with the creativity that goes into the prompts just as much as the art they inspire.
Did any of these prompts inspire you to pick up a pen? Or if you’re not an artist yourself have you found one to follow?
Psst! Have you head about GeekDis?
