Plankton Poster
An InkTober Challenge

So what is InkTober? ink-tober stands for ink and october together. It's an art challenge to draw with ink every day for the month of October. That means 31 drawings by the end of the month. This year I chose to do Plankton. One Plankton a day for InkTober, or should I say PlankTober? On this poster you will find all 31 drawings together.

Plankton are a multitude of living organisms adrift in the currents. Our food, our fuel, and the air we breathe originate in plankton. Plankton comes from the Greek word planktos, which means wandering or drifting. Any living creature carried along by ocean currents is classified as plankton. It ranges in size from the tiniest virus to siphonophores, the longest animals in the world, and also includes microscopic algae, krill or fish larvae.

Planktonic organisms play important roles in human life. Many microscopic species get their energy from photosynthesis. They absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. Thus, they constantly renew the air we breathe. Plankton has also been a great provider of fossil energy. When planktonic organisms die, they sink to the sea-bed creating a layer of sediment. Over millions of years, this sediment fossilized, producing our precious oil. Plankton nourishes us: it is the basis of the food chain in which the large eat the small. Without plankton, there would be no fish!

All prints are the exact reproduction of the original artworks, you can still see the original pencil strokes. They come from a local professional printing company, printed on extra heavyweight 350 g/m2 matte paper with a fine silk touch to make it stand out.

To keep your print in its pristine condition it’s best to frame it as soon as possible. Once removed from the protective sleeve, please handle at the edges only and try to avoid the ink especially the blacks. Carefully unroll and flatten your print for best results. Once it’s framed please keep them away from direct sunlight as they tend to fade that way.

All prints are printed on demand so please allow 2 weeks maximum to prepare your order for postage. I will of course send them out as soon as possible.

All orders are sent out in postal tubes due to their sizes and most importantly for protection. This way the prints are compact, easy to post and affordable.

Please allow at least 2 weeks (up to 6 weeks in rare cases) to receive your order. Customers are also responsible for customs costs (Duty Taxes). Please check these before ordering as they vary in each country, also it’s illegal to send merchandise items as gifts.

For easy framing IKEA has a great range of square shape frames or the easiest is probably a vinyl record frame it’s approximately the same size.

Please note that the pencils and rocks are decoration items only. It doesn’t come framed, that’s an example shown in a vinyl record frame.
