Right as the whirlwind of Inktober comes to an end and before I hunker down to write by the seat of my pants for NaNoWriMo, there’s one day I’m keeping my schedule clear for—and you should, too!
I'm always trying to buff up my portfolio, and something I want to include more is illustrations that tell stories. Consider this an invitation to join me in making an illustration you can show off.
Since the beginning of 2017 I've been working on a really exciting project. As you may or may not know, I had a weekly slot on the Twitch Adobe channel until it ceased operating on 7/30/2017. Each week I invited a member of the Design Dolls stream team on for a three hour art stream to talk about her life as a creator and to paint a portrait of her.
People always ask me where I find motivation to draw, where I go for inspiration, or how I come up with ideas when I’m feeling stuck. When I’m stuck (with anything in my life) I have to reconnect with feeling.
When it comes to the art you just finished, you’re probably never going to overcome the feeling that you failed (in some way). As a new artist, this can be utterly overwhelming, but it happens at all stages of the artistic journey.
Let’s celebrate the things we love this month with some fun fanart. I’m going to be doing art to celebrate some of my favorite things like the new season of Sense8, Alice in Wonderland, and the amazing streamer KayPikeFashion. I want you to join me.
This April, we're playing an Illustration Prompt Game together. Like our last group prompt, this is a great opportunity If you're building an illustration portfolio or you just want to level up your art skills!

Way one: pick your favorite prompt and make an illustration based on it
Way two: doodle ideas for all three, and pick the one you ...
This is it, guys. This is the stuff I get so excited for.
Allow me to introduce you to my new favorite thing: Month of Love. This is a month-long challenge similar to NaNoWriMo or #Inktober. Geared towards illustrators, Month of Love brings weekly illustration prompts during February.
