Book of Lai - 31 Beautiful Illustrations For The InkTober Initiative Challenge

The InkTober Initiative is a drawing challenge created by Jake Parker for artists all over the world. For the whole month of October, participants are to do one ink drawing a day by following the prompt list below to create a total of 31 ink drawings. The campaign was initially created by Parker in 2009 to improve his inking skills and to develop positive drawing habits. Since then, it has grown into a worldwide endeavour, attracting thousands of artists to take part in The Inktober Initiative challenge each year.


Following The InkTober Initiative, many great works were created in the process. As we enter the month of November, it is now the best time to compile some of the best works by artists all over the world. Here, we are featuring the Malaysia based artist Book of Lai.

The InkTober Initiative required utmost discipline from the artists to complete 31 hand-inked illustrations, and clearly he has done that. Book of Lai‘s Inktober challenge comprises 31 illustrations featuring his distinctive triangle red-nosed characters. Book of Lai sees the eyes and nose as the key to capture a face profile, and the triangle red nose symbolise young blood in his characters. Without him realising at first, it has since become his very own unique artistic expressions.

Now, let’s take a look at the Young Blood by Book of Lai.
