In Photos: A Recap of Egypt’s Second Half of Inktober

Sketch by sar_asart for the Helmet prompt.

First created by artist Jake Parker in 2009, Inktober is an annual challenge where artists from around the world post daily sketches on social media based on prompts posted by the official Inktober Instagram account, which boasts more than one million followers.

Earlier this month, we featured some of the most creative submissions posted by Egyptian artists during the first half of October. Now that the month has come to an end, we take a look at some of the nation’s most notable submissions during the second half of the month, which featured prompts such as Risk, Slither, and Fuzzy.
