Jake Parker is a comics short-story creator, concept artist, illustrator, and animator. In 2009 Parker started Inktober, a popular annual celebration of ink drawing during the month of October.[1] In 2014's Inktober, over 100,000 inked images were tagged on Twitter by participating artists.[2] Inktober continues to be a popular social media phenomenon in 2018, with people appreciating the positive drawing habits and creativity that the concept of Inktober brings out.[3] In 2014 he started an "Art Drop Day" on September 6 to encourage artists to connect with others in a physical way.[4][5]

Parker is also the cofounder and contributor to the illustration education website, Society of Visual Storytelling. He started this company in 2013 as a series of live online classes, and now offers subscriptions to his recorded classes.[6]

Parker worked on animation at large studios, and contributed to the movie Titan A.E., Rio and Horton Hears a Who.[7] He contributed stories for three of the volumes of Flight.[8] His comic "Robot and the Sparrow" was influenced by Calvin and Hobbes.[9]

His son, Tate Parker, also draws comics.[10]
