here’s a look at this week’s drawings from the #aprilartchallenge! I think my favorite prompt from the week was ‘obsession’, which gave me an excuse to draw a coffin. you know, because I love all that spooky stuff…

be sure check out the week one and week two recaps, and do you want to join the challenge? just jump in and get drawing! take a look at the prompt list here 🙂

april 30-day drawing challenge

29

a little secret: I’ve always wanted to host a drawing challenge.

whenever I have participated in challenges (specifically inktober), I always find myself super creatively motivated. I’m also a firm believer that drawing, regardless of what medium you work in day to day, is just a good thing to do. drawing, illustrating, doodling, sketching…whatever it is you’re doing and at whatever level you’re doing it at…is a technical skill! so, it’s important to keep up those skills and practice, practice, practice.

now it wouldn’t be my kind of drawing challenge if it didn’t include prompts like: something two-headed, an eyeball, an urban legend, or a dead president (festive right?).  the rules of this challenge are simple:

+ draw something everyday based on the prompt. this is totally your own interpretation, and thinking outside of the box is very much encouraged!

+ your drawing can be done in any medium and on any substrate of your choosing. personally, I’ll be doing my daily drawings in a moleskine sketchbook with pitt pens (and maybe colored pencil here and there).

+ you do not have to have any drawing skills to participate. it’s about doing a creative task everyday, and practicing!

+ share your work on social media using the hashtag: #aprilartchallenge

so there you have it folks. grab your art supplies and your art homies…and let’s do this thing. the challenge starts FRIDAY!
