The General Pencil Co. has kindly sent a few product samples. The blog has had four contests in the past, but they were all knowledge based, so it’s about time for something more open.
For random draw is a “Primo Euro Blend Charcoal Drawing Set” with five charcoal pencils, four compressed charcoal sticks, a kneaded eraser, a black Factis eraser, and a sharpener. The box is illustrated by artist and past pencil talk commenter J. D. Hilberry.
As a way to say thank you to those who’ve left comments here is the past, the draw is only open to previous commenters. The WordPress blog software should manage this. It is set to “Comment author must have a previously approved comment”.
One commenter on this post will be randomly chosen. They draw is open for 24 hours, ending tomorrow June 11, 2010 at 19:00 EDT. The prize will be sent via Canada Post.
