Hi everyone,

October is here! As many of you know, October means it's time for Inktober. Every year during Inktober, artists all over the world participate in the challenge of making an ink drawing every day during the month. The main goals are to improve your drawing skills, develop positive habits, and most of all - having fun.

For those unfamiliar with Inktober, here's a link to the rules, and some prompts for things to draw ( Some participants create a new drawing each day, some only when they have time during the month. The topic prompts are only suggestions, and not strict guidelines to be followed.

On our blog this month I will be doing a weekly round up of Inktober artwork. If you are creating a new drawing every day, or even if you only create one drawing for the entire month, please feel free to email one of your ink drawings to our Blog email: (with a link to your social media where you've posted it). Every Friday this month I will post a round up of all submissions for that week.

Remember - You don't have to be an illustrator to participate. Inktober is a fun challenge for everyone!

Best wishes,
Stephanie, Catherine, and Chris

  1. I don't know how to draw but I'm participating. I challenge other writers to join Inktober via a sketch journal: Who's in?
