Inktober at Dear Diary Coffeehouse

How to enter

We’re so excited about Inktober! Just for fun, we’re giving away prizes!

Inktober is an annual event where artists challenge themselves to draw every day, every other day, or weekly. The idea is to create a goal for yourself and stick to it! Dear Diary is spicing things up with weekly prizes. All posts submitted in a given week will be entered into that week’s raffle. Week 5 is a little different; we’ll look over all submissions and choose a best-in-show.

So to recap, this October:

  1. Follow @deardiary_atx on Instagram
  2. Look up the daily prompt
  3. Draw something in pen and/or ink
  4. Post your drawing to Instagram with these hashtags:
    #inktober #inktober2020 #deardiaryart

We’ll direct-message you on Instagram if you’ve won. Also, we’ll post weekly winners to our Instagram feed.
