History of Ghostober

In 2020 I decided to put a spin on the popular Inktober trend, where a list of daily art prompts are shared for the month of October. My take was Ghostober, a list of daily prompts for ghostly artwork in which anyone could follow along to create with me as I made new ghost art every day.

Ghosts: Volume One by Flukelady

It all culminated in a limited book release, which I independently designed and published via my website. The book also featured several submissions from readers and followers like you! Best of all, it sold-out on presale and every subsequent restock (thank you so much to everyone who supported that project!)

What year did GHOSTOBER start? 2020 was the year I launched Ghostober – and I’m happy to be continuing this year!

Will there be another book? Yes, follow me on instagram for updates!

How can I get a copy of Ghosts Vol. 1? The book is currently out-of-stock, I’ll have some news soon. You can also score a copy from my personal stash via the giveaway at the bottom of this page.

Can I Share Anywhere Else?

You can post your submissions below in the comments section! Use the file upload feature to attach an image of your creation and everyone who visits this page will see it. Please note that comments are manually-approved so it may take a few hours for your comment to appear for everyone else to see. Please be patient!
