The delay in arrival has been due shipping. We are expecting two orders at the same time - one order was placed in June and the other was placed in July but due to haulage challenges both deliveries are arriving together.

Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
Post it (post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone.
Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2021

Tsukineko Label Changes
In the coming months, Tsukineko will be removing the “child safe and non-toxic” claim on their labels in the Versacolor ink pad range.
Tsukineko have not made any changes to the products but wish to ensure there is no confusion with UKCA/CE marking or EN-71 testing requirements (which apply to stationary products that are designed to appeal to children, but not those only intended for adult use).
