Inktober 2023 is just around the corner, and if you’re thinking of giving it a shot, you’ve come to the right place.

Inktober is an exhilarating month-long challenge that takes place every October. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned artist, this is a fantastic opportunity to cure artist’s block and discover your untapped potential.

The challenge is to draw every single day from October 1st to October 31st using the daily prompts for inspiration. The best part is that you can draw whatever you want. Let the prompts take your mind on an adventure!

No idea is a bad idea.

All you need is a few tools under your belt, and we have just what you need to take you to the next level.

First thing’s first.

You will need sketchbooks with high quality paper that can handle all your artistic mischief!


It’s no surprise that we have the world-renowned Moleskin A4 Sketchbook available. Its quality is immediately recognizable with its heavy paper and is perfect for ink, sketches and water-soluble colours.

Or, if you’d like to go old-school with just pencils and pens, grab a Derwent Academy A4 Sketch Paper Pad. Its paper is both smooth and reliable.

But hey, it’s Inktober, so let’s talk ink!


The Mont Marte Graphic Fineliners Set are a must-have! They come with a selection of different tip sizes that provide perfect, sharp, even lines. And for some real ink magic, try the Morris Bamboo Brush Pen.

It’s a super versatile pen that’s smooth, flexible and perfect for both traditional and contemporary lines. The tip of the brush is made to provide easy control over stroke width and direction. Once you use it, you won’t want to put it down!

Now, one thing you should never let Inktober do, is put you in a box.

If you’re feeling colorful, go for it!


Grab the Copic Classic Refillable Marker Set. They’re like a rainbow in a box. Copic Markers are known to be one of the best quality markers in the market, and this set provides all the colors you’ll need to add life to your creation.

Another great option is using watercolor pencils with a water brush.


If you want to paint with more control, the Monte Marte Watercolor Pencils give you that grip and control you’d normally have using pencils. All you need to do is add water with the Derwent Watercolor Brush Set, and just watch your art come alive! With different tip sizes provided in this set, you have the choice to go around any corner or curve with ease.

Last but definitely not least, you can use a high-quality art tablet.


Digital Art gives you more freedom than you can imagine! The Wacom One 13.3-Inch Creative Pen Display is perfect for all your sketching, painting, and editing needs. It includes a pen and a paper-like canvas for you to have a seamless and natural experience. Best part? It doesn’t need batteries and you’ll never run out of ink!

If you’re feeling hesitant just remember, this challenge is made for you to have fun and relax.

Trust in yourself and give it shot! Keep in mind that improvement never comes overnight, but trust us when we say you’ll surprise yourself with how far you can grow in just a month.
