Sketch Summer In London To Win An Inkling

If you like to doodle or design on the go then you could use an Inkling. It's a digital sketch pen for rough concept drawing, brainstorming and sketching first ideas on paper. It allows you to create your artwork the traditional way then transfer it to your digital device.

With the Wacom Inkling you can sketch with a real ballpoint pen on any paper. While you are drawing, all strokes are recorded electronically and can then be imported as raster or vector artwork in to Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or Autodesk Sketch Book Pro for further editing. With just one button click you can record layers, for instance, to separate preparatory and final drawings. These layers are then retained after import.

Clever stuff. Want to win one? We have three Wacom Inklings - worth £84.95 each - to give away to Londonist readers.

To enter the competition, simply sketch us something that represents summer in London. Like sunbathing in parks, ice creams on lunch breaks, pavement eating and drinking.... or, for this particular year, getting caught unsuitably attired in a flash flood, wearing wellies to walk the dog or turning on the heating in June. It's entirely up to your artistic interpretation.

There are three ways to submit your sketches:

  • By email to hello@londonist.com, subject line: I'D LIKE AN INKLING
  • By Tweeting @londonist #inkling
  • By posting on Londonist's Facebook wall #inkling


We'll pick the best sketches after 5pm on Tuesday 16 July and notify the winners by replying to their submission. Then we'll share the winning entries with the world by publishing them on Londonist.

For more about the Inkling become a fan of Wacom Creative Pros on Facebook or visit the website.

Terms & conditions: Entrants from Europe only. Usual Londonist competition policy applies.
