That annual tradition where you make an ink drawing a day for the full month of October (that’s 31 drawings for those of you counting at home) is almost upon us!

To get things off to a start we’ve created a number of drawing prompts that you can use for the event. What’s more, if you draw something and tag it on instagram with #nscinktober or any of the hashtags below you will automatically get one entry to possibly win a free artist’s series speedball pen nib set (you guessed it, that’s 31 potential entries). You don’t have to use a prompt below to qualify they’re just there to help. But you do have to use one of the hashtags to count and you have to do it on instagram. You’re more than welcome to post your work to other social media sites, we just won’t be checking there for your entries.

This is a fun event that really helps get you into a daily drawing habit (if you aren’t already). Please join us! We’ll be meeting at our usual spot on Thursdays (The edgewater workbench from 7pm-10pm) throughout the month and we’ll have some india ink on hand for you if you need a refill (while supplies last).
