What is Inktober?
Do I have to use a pen or ink?
No, it's about flexing your creative muscles and practicing art skills. If markers or digital sketching are more your style go for it. Also, if you prefer letter art, feel free to draw the prompt word artistically.
Do I have to draw something based on the prompts?
For LME Library's contest, we would like teens to follow the prompts, please even though the official Inktober page says "No. The prompts are there to help spark your creativity. If you have another great idea, go for it!" The official prompt list is at the bottom of this page.
How do I qualify for the LME Library's prize?
