Before you answer this question, follow this train of thought... if art (whatever it is you create) is an expression of your inner self, an outward symbol of your interpretation of either your inner world or your perception of the outer world, then as long as you are creating, you ARE an artist and you are certainly entitled to claim that title for yourself. Or are you?
I've participated in the Inktober challenge now for 5 years (2016-2020). And you'd think that with every year the challenge gets easier and easier, but actually, for me, it's always been the other way around. Nowadays I think that it seemed easier the first days around... But you can decide for yourself!
