I will be giving each day a go, but only for practice. Not really done much ink work in quite a while so slowly going through Jake's video tutorial. Surprisingly I found some inktober licensed/sponsored (?) pens which was surprising as I living in Japan
If you haven't watched it this is a great class for getting advice on how to plan out your work, and super useful with Inktober on the horizon. Anna Daviscourt also suggests a fun challenge to put some of the advice into practice.

This is extremely helpful! Thank you so much for your time and the valuable information.I asked the publisher to restrict the time of use for 10 years and they seem to be fine with that. However, they are going to make a multi-language picture book and want to sell it outside of Germany as well. There will be 8 languages in one picture book which is quite uncommon. In this case the request of an exclusive right is too much to ask for, I believe. Thank you for your concrete example of the recent contract that helped me to understand better about making an agreement. It's good to know that you can also limit the number of copies of a book in the contract.
Mr. Will Terry once said on his YouTube video that everything is negotiable and your advice just reminded me of that.
@hakepe I think to demonstrate this particular story you need to push the man back more like this:
This shows that he has fallen behind and also suits the direction he is walking, following the curve of the path while the woman and dog are moving in the straight direction. When they are too close it looks like she is rudely cutting across a stranger. His gaze will need to be adjusted to look at them running ahead so that we know that he is connected to them.
THE FIST is about a guy who punches stuff real good. His wife is a spaceship. They’re on the run from the EVIL Space Army, but stop along the way to fight for money.
It’s a big, action-packed, weird, silly, four-color, fun, dumb, love-letter to all the comics, cartoons and video games that formed my brain as a kid.
It’s a book I've been working on and off between projects for four years. I "write", illustrate, color, and publish it all on my own. I say "write" because it's more of a freeform kind of thing. I use a loose outline, but make up a chunk of it as I go.

@Coreyartus Thank you so much! Your post is super encouraging, I'm really glad you liked it and that it reads as it does for you. Making art can really put you in a weird place sometimes where you can't see things as other people do anymore, so I really appreciate the feedback here.
I hadn't thought of doing an illustrated version of the play to be honest, but it might be a fun idea!
As for text, yes, I would like to put at least a title on, but haven't quite worked my way around to that piece yet.
Thanks again for taking the time to leave the feedback!

@Jeremy-Ross , @aprilshin , @Neha-Rawat I enjoyed making both of them in different ways, but I'm more confident in the first being more appropriate to the challenge than the second. The tone of the short story doesn't gel with the second image I drew. It may be more visually interesting, but the short story seems to hinge so much on Bongo's confident fearlessness and wit (bordering on arrogance) that I feel like the second image just doesn't apply... The second image has more of a Jungle Book-vibe that speaks to danger a bit more. I don't ever feel Bongo is in much actual danger in the short story prompt--in fact, it seems he knew what he was doing all along...
@Heather-Boyd Thank you, I made the ink fairy into a mad scientist tattooist. I will look through the submission board to see if there is any mention of markers.
