One of the things I love to do is encouraging people to create. I have found I really love to post creative challenges every so often. They’re an effort to get people to flex their creative muscles. For the month of June, I posted one called Toon Joon. The idea is simple. I give you the “gag” you draw the cartoon.

For the last day of Art Mayhem, I decided to create a character that represents mayhem and I pulled out all the stops. three tails, four eyes, forked tongue and a whole lot of claws and teeth. He looks like pure rage but he was quite a bit of fun to create. Again this i why I like making creatures, they are limitless. This was the first time I tried to do an online challenge like this. I ended up having only one person participate. Needless to say I’d hoped for more, but I had a good time getting to see what my fellow artist saw in each of he daily words and hopefully I’ve made a friend from “the other side of the pond.” What’s next? Well I have a few things in the pipe. Lots of presentation graphics for the coming months in my ministry finishing my last two classes for my ministry and curating a challenge. I won’t be able to be a participant in that one but stay tuned.
