The real reason he attacked Lake-Town…and what better way to kick off Inktober than inky fingers
Tomorrow marks the start of Inktober! It’s an internet challenge thang created by Jake Parker to improve his skills and get himself drawing. The challenge is to create an ink drawing everyday for a month. There’s nothing I need more than another set of deadlines (o_0) but it sounds like too much fun to pass up. I’ll post my daily disasters right here on the blog. You don’t have to be an artist to join in so check out Jake’s Inktober guidelines

This week marks the 8th anniversary of Bleeker starting online. I launched the comic (then called Hoover the Rechargeable Dog) the last week of July, 2006. I loaded it everyday and thought I’d give it six months and see how it…and I…did.
Here’s what our friend looked like in February of 2006 (…still in the early design stages)
