Some of the biggest struggles I face as an artist are being inconsistent in practice, not making time to create, not knowing what to create when I open up my sketchbook fully intimidated by that blank page, and wishing I had community and support with friends creating by my side. (I’m sure some of you can relate!)
So, to overcome some of my own struggles, for the month of June, I’ve challenged myself to get in my sketch book every single day by setting up a series of prompts ahead of time so I can’t say to myself (and my sketchbook) “I don’t know what to draw, so I just won’t do anything today.”
But, even better than just challenging myself to draw every day this month, I’ve invited my friends (yes, that includes YOU!) to join in with me so we can create together and cheer one another on!
Each day at 7am (PST) you’ll receive an email from me with your prompt for the day. Once you’ve completed your drawing, pat yourself on the back, and then post it on Instagram with the rest of the crew under the hashtag #MakeWithMe.
One of the best things about doing this together is the encouragement of community, but also the accountability to continue creating and the joy of practicing. (And even getting better!)
Absolutely no drawing experience is necessary! Just start where you are and challenge yourself to grow.
I hope you’ll jump in and join us!
