Created by Jake Parker in 2009, "Inktober" is an international artistic challenge to create a drawing every day between October 1 and 31, following a list of imposed themes. Alina Schiau wanted her 31 "INKTOBER2019" drawings to be part of her DRAW ME A LINE series, with the same graphic and symbolic codes: a simple line and message, and a lot of humour.
She has fun with the themes, hijacking them in her own way, with words and medium, as a child would. The children's drawings are authentic, touching and amusing, because they are charged with a percussive lucidity. That's what she's aiming for with these drawings: to let the little girl in her express herself, so that the big girl never gets bored.... At the same time, she aims to evoke an emotion, whatever it may be, in the viewer.
